Soil salinity is a serious problem in crop production, but the work of scientists helps to relieve it.
Researchers have produced new resources for research involving the roundworm C. elegans: a comprehensive view of which genes are active in each of the four major tissues of adult worms, as well as a tool for predicting gene activity across 76 more specific cell types.
Researchers now report the first use of CRISPR genome-wide screening to identify a gene that helps cells resist flavivirus infection.
A new study suggests that defenses against extreme temperatures give E. coli bacteria an advantage in fending off certain drugs. The work could help doctors administer antibiotics in a more precise way.
Following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), a type of bariatric surgery, many patients exhibit a reduction in taste preference for sweet and fatty foods, although this effect may only be temporary, according to new research.
Evidence of tiny particles of carbon, typically created by burning fossil fuels, has been found in placentas for the first time, in new research.
A new tool could help ensure limited conservation dollars are well spent by determining which actions would save the most species per dollar.
