Scientists develop a biosensor for contact lenses that can detect blood glucose levels for diabetics - and potentially more.
.New bi-pedal robot that looks like the legs of an ostrich could soon be the face of package delivery,
Scientists give humans an advantage in the fight against the increasingly strong superbugs.
A previously unidentified call heard in the Mariana Trench could be a new baleen whale call as reported by the Oregon State University researchers who recorded and analyzed the sound. The scientists at Oregon State University's Marine Science Center have dubbed the sound the 'Western Pacific Biotwang.'
A new study has made waves in the scientific community by documenting the ability of researchers to gather bear DNA from residual saliva left on salmon carcasses, providing wildlife biologists with a new database. Published in the journal PLOS ONE, the scientists believe their study can provide a significant boost to research on the population and health of brown bears.
Vast genetic changes can occur in hatchery-raised fish in as little as one generation, according to the latest study from Oregon State University. This poses a significant threat to wild populations that come in contact with their genetically unique relatives.
Researchers have discovered a new species of poisonous flower that has been trapped in amber for the last 20 to 30 million years.
American pikas prefer to live in cold, mountainous habitats. As climate change brings warmer temperatures, researchers believe the key to their survival will be remaining in close-knit patches.
A recent study found that there's a "magic number" of krill for blue whales to find in order to gather enough energy for their massive bodies. If they don't find the tiny food sources in concentrated supply, the whales have to hold their breaths more and do more gathering.
While parcels of ocean have recently been preserved, researchers from Oregon State University say that the proportion of marine preservation is still far behind that for land. They've laid out reasons why it's much cheaper to act now.
An ancient flea caught in amber has accompanying bacteria that strongly resembles the forms of the bubonic plague. An Oregon State researcher recently published findings about this fossil from the Dominican Republic.
In the Caribbean, which has no salamanders, one of the amphibians was recently found preserved in amber from 20 million to 30 million years ago.
A marine algae that grows on both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts has been made faster-growing and more succulent, scientists say.
Research on why seahorses' square tails give them resilience and flexibility could be used for robotics, bioscience, and other science.
