Genes Found in Drought-Resistant Plants Could Accelerate Evolution of Water-Use Efficient Crops

Posted: 01 Dec 2017 07:45 AM PST

Newswise imageScientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have identified a common set of genes that enable different drought-resistant plants to survive in semi-arid conditions, which could play a significant role in bioengineering and creating energy crops that are tolerant to water deficits.

Researchers Develop Graphene Nano 'Tweezers' That Can Grab Individual Biomolecules

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 02:05 PM PST

Newswise imageResearchers from the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering have found yet another remarkable use for the wonder material graphene--tiny electronic "tweezers" that can grab individual biomolecules with incredible efficiency. This capability could lead to a revolutionary handheld disease diagnostic system that could be run on a smart phone.

Study Confirms that Cuprate Materials Have Fluctuating Stripes that May Be Linked to High-temperature Superconductivity

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 01:05 PM PST

Newswise imageScientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have shown that copper-based superconductors, or cuprates - the first class of materials found to carry electricity with no loss at relatively high temperatures - contain fluctuating stripes of electron charge and spin that meander like rivulets over rough ground.

Discovery Puts the Brakes on HIV's Ability to Infect

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 11:05 AM PST

Newswise imageIn a study led by the University of Delaware and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, researchers discovered a "brake" that interferes with HIV's development into an infectious agent. This mechanism prevents the capsid - the protein shell covering the virus - from forming.

Deducing the Properties of a New Form of Diamond

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 11:05 AM PST

Earlier this year, amorphous diamond was synthesized for the first time using a technique involving high pressures, moderately high temperatures and a tiny amount of glassy carbon as starting material. A father-son team at Clemson University has now successfully calculated a number of basic physical properties for this new substance, including elastic constants and related quantities. The results are reported this week in Applied Physics Letters.

First-of-Its-Kind Mummy Study Reveals Clues to Girl's Story

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 09:05 AM PST

Newswise imageWho is she, this little mummy girl? Northwestern University scientists and students are working to unravel some of her mysteries, including how her body was prepared 1,900 years ago in Egypt, what items she may have been buried with, the quality of her bones and what material is present in her brain cavity. As part of a comprehensive scientific investigation, the mummy traveled from Evanston to Argonne National Laboratory on Nov. 27 for an all-day X-ray scattering experiment. It was the first study of its kind performed on a human mummy.
