After decades of dictatorship and international sanctions, Myanmar (formerly called Burma) is now home to a small but fast-growing tech start-up scene, offering everything from home-cooked food deliveries to comic apps. But the country is still considered too risky...
University of Bristol research has revealed how cells rebuild their nucleus and organise their genome when they divide – a discovery which could have major implications for understanding cancer and degeneration. When cells divide, they need to rebuild their nucleus...
Nestled deep in each of your cells is what seems like a magic trick: Six feet of DNA is packaged into a tiny space 50 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Like a long, thin string...
We’ve all heard about the search for life on other planets, but what about looking on other moons? The Astrophysical Journal, researchers at the University of California, Riverside and the University of Southern Queensland have identified more than 100 giant...
