  • AI tool creates 'synthetic' images of cells for enhanced microscopy analysis April 22, 2024
    Researchers have developed a method to use an image generation AI model to create realistic images of single cells, which are then used as 'synthetic data' to train an AI model to better carry out single-cell segmentation.
  • World's oases threatened by desertification, even as humans expand them April 22, 2024
    Oases are important habitats and water sources for dryland regions, sustaining 10% of the world's population despite taking up about 1.5% of land area. But in many places, climate change and anthropogenic activities threaten oases' fragile existence. New research shows how the world's oases have grown and shrunk over the past 25 years as water […]
  • Liquid droplets shape how cells respond to change April 22, 2024
    New research has shown that cells regulate cAMP/PKA signaling by forming liquid droplets that segregate excess PKA catalytic subunits where they can do no harm. Some cancers may block the formation of liquid droplets, leading to hyperactive signaling and tumor formation.
  • Everest mountaineer's letters digitized April 22, 2024
    Letters written by the famous mountaineer George Mallory have been made available to a global audience for the first time, in the centenary year of his fatal attempt to scale Everest.
  • Switching off the light to see better April 22, 2024
    Researchers used structured light and switchable fluorescent molecules to reduce the background light from the out-of-plane regions of microscope samples. This method allowed for the acquisition of images that surpassed the conventional resolution limit, and it may be useful for further study of cell clusters and other biological systems.
  • AI weather forecasts captured Ciaran's destructive path April 22, 2024
    The study highlights the rapid progress and transformative potential of AI in weather prediction.
  • The enemy within: How pathogens spread unrecognized in the body April 22, 2024
    Some pathogens hide inside human cells to enhance their survival. Researchers have uncovered a unique tactic certain bacteria use to spread in the body without being detected by the immune system. In their study, they reveal the crucial role of a bacterial nanomachine in this infection process.
  • Breakthrough rice bran nanoparticles show promise as affordable and targeted anticancer agent April 22, 2024
    Plant-derived nanoparticles have demonstrated significant anticancer effects. Researchers recently developed rice bran-derived nanoparticles (rbNPs) that efficiently suppressed cell proliferation and induced programmed cell death of only cancer cells. Furthermore, rbNPs successfully suppressed the growth of tumors in mice having aggressive adenocarcinoma in their peritoneal cavity, without any adverse effects. Given their low production costs and […]
  • To accelerate biosphere science, reconnect three scientific cultures April 22, 2024
    Researchers who study Earth's biosphere tend to operate from one of three scientific cultures, each with distinct ways of conducting science, and which have been operating mostly independently from one another. The authors identify and explain the three cultures, and suggest that reconnecting them could help accelerate biosphere science.
  • Invasive species sound off about impending ecosystem changes April 20, 2024
    Anticipating changes to ecosystems is often at best an educated guess, but what if there was a way to better tune into possible changes occurring? Researchers have discovered that the silent growth of non-native invasive plants can affect the soundscape of an ecosystem. These altered soundscapes, the acoustic patterns of a landscape through space and […]
