'Jumping genes' help stabilize DNA folding patterns
Remarkable Walking Sharks Are Strutting All Over and Here’s Their Deal
"Jumping genes"—bits of DNA that can move from one spot in the genome to another—are well-known for increasing genetic diversity over the long course of evolution. Now, new research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that such genes, also called transposable elements, play another, more surprising role: stabilizing the 3-D folding patterns of the DNA molecule...
How the North Korean hackers behind WannaCry got away with a stunning crypto-heist
Scientists have discovered four new species of walking sharks proving the ocean somehow can always seem a little more mysterious.
According to a study published in the Marine and Freshwater Research journal on Tuesday, the Hemiscylliidae genus of sharks “walk” using their pectoral and pelvic fins to move across the ocean floor and live in coastal waters around northern Australia and...
We can’t trust the billionaires of Davos to solve a climate crisis they created | Payal Parekh
The so-called Lazarus group has used elaborate phishing schemes and cutting-edge money-laundering tools to steal money for Kim Jong-un’s regime.
Blue-emitting diode demonstrates limitations and promise of perovskite semiconductors
It’s time to turn away from the World Economic Forum and its mass-polluting ‘affiliates’. We need new, radical solutions• Payal Parekh is an international climate activistThis week, among the private chalets and deep snow of Davos, the world’s leading politicians and businesspeople have been spending their time at the World Economic Forum (WEF), and they’ve been talking about the...
University of California, Berkeley, scientists have created a blue light-emitting diode (LED) from a trendy new semiconductor material, halide perovskite, overcoming a major barrier to employing these cheap, easy-to-make materials in electronic devices.
