Scientists are getting closer to creating a functional bioartificial kidney, which could one day revolutionize treatments for kidney failure without the need for expensive dialysis or transplants in millions of patients around the world.
A new study revealed that air pollution could provide a possible means of transportation for the genes that make bacteria resistant to existing drugs.
Scientists from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute have discovered one group of corals that survived the Caribbean coral extinction between one and two million years ago continues to adapt to future climate changes because of their high genetic diversity.
A team of scientists from the University of Illinois has devised a revolutionary way of boosting crop yield of tobacco plants by 20 percent by adjusting their genetic makeup.
Scientists composed of an international team spearheaded by the University of Michigan has presented a new type of photoreceptor in animals that is 50 times more efficient at capturing light than the rhodopsin in the human eye. This photoreceptor is just the third to be found in animals, specifically a family of taste receptors in invertebrates.
