  • Smartphone sensor data has potential to detect cannabis intoxication September 26, 2021
    A smartphone sensor, much like what is used in GPS systems, might be a way to determine whether or not someone is intoxicated after consuming marijuana, according to a new study.
  • The origin and legacy of the Etruscans September 24, 2021
    Researchers present comprehensive ancient DNA data retrieved from peoples culturally affiliated with the iconic Etruscans, settling a long-lasting debate on the origins of this highly skilled and enigmatic culture.
  • Guiding microbes along their path September 24, 2021
    The direction of movement of a microbe directly depends on the curvature of its environment, according to new findings. The researchers investigated the navigation of a model microbe, a small self-propelling microalga, in confined compartments with different shapes. They also developed theoretical models to predict the probability flux of that microswimmer which was confirmed by […]
  • In the race to reduce car emissions, don't forget longevity September 24, 2021
    The debate on green vehicles often focuses on fuel efficiency and alternative fuels, with the transition to fuel alternatives commonly being considered better for the environment the faster it is. A new study shows that keeping and using existing fuel-efficient cars a little longer can actually reduce CO? emissions even with gasoline cars. Thus, a […]
  • Observations confirm that aerosols formed from plant emitted compounds can make clouds brighter September 24, 2021
    An observational study confirms a prevailing theory that volatile organic compounds emitted by vegetation form atmospheric aerosols which make clouds more reflective.
  • Machine learning uncovers 'genes of importance' in agriculture and medicine September 24, 2021
    Machine learning can pinpoint 'genes of importance' that help crops to grow with less fertilizer, according to a new study. It can also predict additional traits in plants and disease outcomes in animals, illustrating its applications beyond agriculture.
  • Systems approach helps assess public health impacts of changing climate, environmental policies September 23, 2021
    Scientists offer an alternative way to understand and minimize health impacts from human-caused changes to the climate and environment.
  • If endangered primates disappear, so will their parasites. That's actually a problem September 23, 2021
    People are more aware of the plight of endangered gorillas than of gorillas' gut worms, and are understandably more enamored with mouse lemurs than their mites. Half of the world's roughly 500 primate species are at risk of extinction due to human activities such as hunting, trapping and deforestation. But the demise of the world's […]
  • Aging the unageable: New way to age lobsters September 23, 2021
    Researchers have developed a new way of determining the age of a lobster based on its DNA. Lobsters are notoriously difficult to age. Nobody knows exactly how old they can get, and some experts have estimated they could live on the ocean floor for as long as a century or more. Until now, a lobster's […]
  • Wide heads help sperm swim together September 23, 2021
    Researchers used machine learning to discover that sperm with a wide head relative to length are more likely to clump together and swim collectively, a rare behavior that sometimes helps them reach an egg faster. The study provides a new method for understanding how form and function are related in cells with complex behaviors in […]
