Melbourne researchers say they have successfully grown and implanted cornea cells to cure blindness. The cells were grown on a layer of synthetic film and transplanted into the eyes of animals, restoring vision. The technique, developed by researchers at Melbourne University and the Centre for Eye Research, could replace transplants of...
NASA findings show that there is a quasi-moon that's been orbiting the Earth for almost a century. One is the loneliest number, especially if you're a moon circling the Earth. Sure, it is smaller than you and goes around the Earth amazingly irregularly, but still, two of anything is always better...
Such was its importance, it was translated by many major figures, including King Alfred the Great, Chaucer and Elizabeth I. Hundreds of Latin songs were recorded in neumes from the 9th through to the 13th century. Because these aural traditions died out in the 12th century, it has often been...
With record-breaking speeds for fiber-optic data transmission, University of Illinois engineers have paved a fast lane on the information superhighway - creating on-ramps for big data in the process. As big data has gotten bigger, the need has grown for a high-speed data transmission infrastructure that can accommodate the ever-growing...
A new mathematical model explains the evolution of our teeth, and could help reveal new details of our evolutionary history. Scientists have found a simple mathematical formula to explain the development of our teeth. Teeth are important tools in evolutionary research as they are relatively hard and often better preserved than...
Memory loss is one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's and heartbreaking for loved ones to watch progress. Scientists had assumed for a long time that the disease destroys how those memories are encoded and makes them disappear forever. A new paper published Wednesday by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Nobel Prize-winning...
If you want to harness the full power of stem cells, all you might need is an eraser. If they can't read that manual, the cells regain their full stem cell power - the power to become any kind of cell in the body. It's the first time that scientists have...
Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the western world. Yin is using zebrafish to study the regeneration of heart tissue because of the amazing capacity of these common aquarium fish to regenerate the form and function of almost any body part, including heart, bone, skin and blood...
Restoring Sight Nishida's new research wouldn't be possible without a recent breakthrough in stem cell technology. In 2006, scientists found they could create fully fledged stem cells from ordinary cells with just a few simple DNA tweaks. The engineered cells are called 'induced pluripotent stem cells,' or iPS. Nishida's team discovered they...
We manufacture over 300 million tonnes of plastics each year for use in everything from packaging to clothing. Plastics linger in the environment, littering streets, fields and oceans alike. Plastics are polymers, long thin molecules made of repeating building blocks. Most plastics are made from carbon-based monomers, so in theory they are...
