A new study from the US Army Research Laboratory presents evidence that the number of cyber intrusions can be predicted, particularly when analysts are already observing activities on a company or government organization's computer network.
Scientists at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain, have developed a new technique to crack the underlying DNA code for the 'control dials' that determine levels of gene activity in bacteria. The discovery has important implications for biotechnology, because genetically engineered bacteria and other organisms are used to produce useful molecules such as new materials and drugs.
Scientists at HHMI's Janelia Research Campus have developed a new method for fine-tuning the structure of rhodamine dyes, and can now create a colorful palette of fluorescent molecules.
Traditional ways of analyzing soil texture are slow. Danish researchers have shown a new, high-tech method that is fast, cost-effective, and portable. This technique could make it much easier to understand the soil texture of a particular area -- or even large areas across the globe.
Three new ant species named in honor of key figures in conservation -- Barack Obama, Ken Saro-Wiwa, and E.O. Wilson -- are immortalized as 3-D virtual avatars.
Collaboration between researchers at the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology, and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne shows the high potential of silicon-based multijunction solar cells.
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have invented a new process to turn spent brewery grains into a valuable product that can grow beer yeast.
South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology has made a surprising discovery: Making better batteries via real-time TEM obervation.
University of South Florida researchers are the first to successfully excavate the Roman villa of Durreueli at Realmonte, located off the southern coast of Sicily.
Researchers at ICFO have harnessed the weirdness of quantum entanglement to detect ultra-faint radio signals.
