  • Two regions in the canine genome explain one third of the risk of rare blood cancer May 13, 2021
    Mutations in two genetic regions in dogs explain over one third of the risk of developing an aggressive form of hematological cancer, according to a new study.
  • Making AI algorithms show their work May 13, 2021
    Artificial intelligence (AI) learning machines can be trained to solve problems and puzzles on their own instead of using rules that we made for them. But often, researchers do not know what rules the machines make for themselves. A new method quizzes a machine-learning program to figure out what rules it learned on its own […]
  • Kelp, maggots and mycoprotein among future foods that must be mass-farmed to combat malnutrition May 13, 2021
    Radical changes to the food system are needed to safeguard our food supply and combat malnutrition in the face of climate change, environmental degradation and epidemics, says new report.
  • What makes plant cell walls both strong and extensible? May 13, 2021
    A plant cell wall's unique ability to expand without weakening or breaking is due to the movement of its cellulose skeleton, according to new research that models the cell wall. The new study presents a new concept of the plant cell wall, gives insights into plant cell growth, and could provide inspiration for the design […]
  • Brain mechanism of curiosity unraveled May 13, 2021
    Researchers have discovered a new brain circuit underlying curiosity and novelty seeking behavior. Using several innovative techniques, the scientists uncovered a whole path of multiple brain regions that converts curiosity into action in mice.
  • Cancer has ripple effect on distant tissues May 13, 2021
    A new study with zebrafish shows that a deadly form of skin cancer -- melanoma -- alters the metabolism of healthy tissues elsewhere in the body. The research suggests that these other tissues could potentially be targeted to help treat cancer.
  • Researchers identify a missing piece of the Lyme disease puzzle May 13, 2021
    Epidemic. Pandemic. These terms have become second nature to us, popping up in everyday conversation, and for good reason -- COVID-19 is the latest pandemic to pose a threat to humanity. But in recent months, far less attention has been paid to another widely spread problem that has been proliferating since the late 1970s: Lyme […]
