Researchers have developed a form of synthetic cardiac stem cell. These stem cells appear to offer therapeutic benefits that can be compared to those from natural stem cells and could even replace some of the risks associated with stem cell therapies.
Solar cells have been steadily gaining popularity because of the environmental and financial benefits. This technology is continuously being improved by researchers, such as the team from North Carolina State University who have discovered a new method to improve the efficiency of plastic solar cells.
Researchers have found evidence of the oldest red pigment in the feathers of a 130-million-year-old bird.
Scientists from North Carolina State University have developed a combination of software and hardware that gives them the ability to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas. One of the proposed uses is for gathering critical information about collapsed buildings after a disaster.
A study published in the journal PLOS ONE reveals that teachers' climate change beliefs may influence students. However, students can still deduce the cause of climate change independently, and does not really rely on their teachers' beliefs completely.
Snowshoe hares typically shed their brown summer coats to blend in with the snowy scenery of the winter. However, when there is no snow, these mismatched animals have no place to hide and increase their chances of being spotted by a predator.
Think you live along? Think again. Any of over 500 different kinds of insects are likely living in your house right now. A first-of-its-kind study revealed the true diversity of arthropods living among us behind closed doors.
The noisy claw sounds of snapping shrimp may be a good indication of reef health, researchers say.
