Protein engineering techniques might one day lead to colorful ultrasound images of cells deep within our bodies.
UCSB neuroscientist Kenneth Kosik stands up for basic cell biology research.
In a study published today in PLOS Genetics, an international team of researchers led by a University of Colorado School of Medicine scientist have identified two significant genes associated with measures of human facial size and have identified 10 additional candidates for location of genes affecting human facial shape.
Functional human collagen has been impossible to create in the lab. Now, a team of University of Wisconsin--Madison researchers describe what may be the key to growing functional, natural collagen fibers outside of the body: symmetry.
University of Colorado Cancer Center researcher shows that mothers who contract malaria during pregnancy may have children with increased risk of Burkitt's lymphoma.
Researchers from the RAND Corporation and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have joined forces to combine high-performance computing with innovative public policy analysis to improve planning for particularly complex issues such as water resource management.
For the first time, scientists have grown human noroviruses, the leading viral cause of acute diarrhea worldwide, in human intestinal cell cultures in the lab.
Researchers at Barrow Neurological Institute have traced the roots of humane medical practices to a pioneering French physician who treated people with deformities as humans instead of 'monsters,' as they were commonly called.
Scientific studies, while ongoing, are still inconclusive on the potential long-term effects fracking has on human development. Today, researchers at the University of Missouri released a study that is the first of its kind to link exposure to chemicals released during hydraulic fracturing to adverse reproductive and developmental outcomes in mice. Scientists believe that exposure to these chemicals also could pose a threat to human development.
UCSB conservation ecologist Douglas McCauley and colleagues examine ecologically responsible de-extinction
