SCIENTISTS JUST TOOK A GIANT LEAP FORWARD IN THE QUEST TO CREATE ARTIFICIAL LIFE
After a scientist added X and Y nucleotide bases to E.coli bacteria's natural genetic alphabet, the DNA generated new proteins. This is the first time an organism has made proteins using anything other than the natural G, C, A, and T bases.
GOOGLE RELEASED AN AI THAT ANALYZES YOUR GENOME
Over a decade after the Human Genome Project (HGP), scientists have no trouble sequencing DNA. But a new AI tool released by Google could make analyzing Genomic data more accurate than ever before.
URANIUM BREAKTHROUGH MAY PAVE THE WAY FOR ENTIRELY NEW MATERIALS
Uranium has largely been relegated to nuclear energy and weapons development, but researchers from the University of Manchester think it could do so much more. The scientists discovered that it's capable of new unprecedented reactions.
INHIBITING ONE ENZYME MAY ALLOW US TO EXTEND THE HUMAN LIFESPAN
A new study has successfully extended the lifespan of worms and flies by inhibiting a particular enzyme. Given that humans also possess this enzyme, there are hopes that this research could help us stave off the aging process.
THESE ARE REAL IMAGES OF A STAR GOING SUPERNOVA
An international team of astronomers recently imaged an exploding supernova. This is a testament to increasing abilities to observe the universe and expand our knowledge through unique imaging.
