Immortal stem cells open the door in producing an unlimited supply of blood for medical purposes.
Milos Petrovic from the University of Central Lancashire said that the new discovery will help in solving the mystery of how neurons are connected and how the brain works as a whole.
When people think of reptiles such as lizards and snakes, they know they are different from mammals because they lay eggs. Dinosaurs, also reptiles, are believed to be the same. But when scientists discovered a fossilized pregnant reptile, they are starting to question the trend.
Scientists have developed a robot that will get all the energy it will need by consuming microbes. Scary as it may sound, this can usher the rise of zombie robots.
Certain colors confuse bees, so flowers will tone down the iridescence of their petals to attract bees and increase their chances of pollination.
Strange green flatworms, also known as "mint-sauce worms," collect together in shallow waters along much of Europe's Atlantic coast, forming what researchers call a "superorganism." It is believed that this social behavior helps protect the animals and aids in their photosynthetic feeding.
Pareiasaurs were massive herbivores that ruled the Earth long before dinosaurs. Despite their stumpy limbs, researchers have found China natives were actually world travelers, able to mingle with relatives in Russia and South Africa.
Unusual fossil tracks found in northern China have baffled scientists for years because they suggest that these very large four-legged dinosaurs called Sauropods might have been able to walk on two feet. The debate has raged on for years in scientific circles but now it seems to be settled.
A new duck-billed dinosaurs found in Alabama suggest the species originated in the eastern U.S. Researchers say finding such rare fossils is really important for understanding how the dinosaurs spread across the world.
Computer simulations of the eating methods of the long-extinct ocean organism Tribrachidium had surprising findings about the more complex-than-thought eating methods of some 555 million years ago.
The relationship between humans and bees dates back much earlier than previously thought. In fact, beeswax was first used during the Stone Age in 7000 BC.
Ant colonies are complex systems built on the cooperation of individual members. When under the attack from a predator, ants work as a well coordinated "superorganism" to esnure the safety of the colony.
When studying muscle strain during jaw opening in three dinosaur species, researchers found that the Tyrannosaurus rex could extend its jaw 90 degrees –- a skill that came in extremely handy for carnivorous predators.
Usually it's assumed that bats' impressive echolocating -- finding their way through darkness via echoes bounced off objects -- is done in a certain way. But a new study says it's actually a far simpler maneuver.
