Discovery suggests new promise for nonsilicon computer transistors

Once deemed suitable only for high-speed communication systems, an alloy called InGaAs might one day rival silicon in high-performance computing. For decades, one material has so dominated the production of computer chips and transistors th...

Using light, red blood cells and a honey bee peptide to deliver therapeutic proteins

Protein therapies are often more potent and selective toward their biochemical targets than other types of drugs, particularly small molecules. However, proteins are also more likely to be quickly degraded by enzymes or cleared from blood by...

Study: Memory deficits resulting from epigenetic changes in Alzheimer’s disease can be reversed

Memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may be able to be restored by inhibiting certain enzymes involved in abnormal gene transcription, according to a preclinical study by researchers at the University at Buffalo. The findin...

Hubble Pins Down Weird Exoplanet with Far-Flung Orbit

A planet in an unlikely orbit around a double star 336 light-years away may offer a clue to a mystery much closer to home: a hypothesized, distant body in our solar system dubbed "Planet Nine." This is the first time that astronomers have...

We are starting to crack the mystery of how lightning and thunderstorms work

Imagine lying on a green hill watching the clouds go by on a beautiful day. The clouds you’re probably thinking of are cumulous clouds, the ones that resemble fluffy balls of cotton wool. They seem innocent enough. But they can grow into t...

Artificial intelligence improves control of powerful plasma accelerators

AI for controlling next generation accelerators improves potential for applications in research, medicine and industry. An international team of accelerator experts with participation of researchers from DESY has successfully demonstrated...

Using CRISPR, new technique makes it easy to map genetic networks

CRISPR-Cas9 makes it easy to knock out or tweak a single gene to determine its effect on an organism or cell, or even another gene. But what if you could perform several thousand experiments at once, using CRISPR to tweak every gene in the g...
<b>Genetically Engineered Tomatoes Produce a Medicine used to Treat Parkinson’s Disease</b>

Genetically Engineered Tomatoes Produce a Medicine used to Treat Parkinson’s Disease

Using common crops and other plants to generate molecules used for therapeutic procedures is not a new idea. For instance, thanks to a novel mutation that switches off its immune system, a tobacco plant native to Australia has since been eng...
