A unique piece of equipment shines a light on the inner workings and formation of clouds
Discovery could, among other things, slash the numbers of false negatives in PSA tests
Twin boundaries in lithium-ion batteries.
Lysosomes are the garbage disposals of animal cells. As the resources are limited in cells, organic materials are broken down and recycled a lot — and that’s what lysosomes do. Detecting problems with lysosomes is the focus of a new set of fluorescent probes developed by researchers at Michigan Technological University. The Royal Society of Chemistry published their work in January.
Pity the poor lithium ion. Drawn relentlessly by its electrical charge, it surges from anode to cathode and back again, shouldering its way through an elaborate molecular obstacle course. This journey is essential to powering everything from cell phones to cordless power tools. Yet, no one really understands what goes on at the atomic scale as lithium ion batteries are used and recharged, over and over again.
The search for 3D printing filament may help lift some of the world’s most destitute people from poverty while cleaning up a major blight on the earth and its oceans: plastic trash
Let’s face it—running a laboratory can be expensive
As the Earth’s human population marches toward 9 billion, the need for hardy new varieties of grain crops has never been greater.
Scientists have known for years that together, bacteria and plants can remediate contaminated sites. Ramakrishna Wusirika, of Michigan Technological University, has determined that how you add bacteria to the mix can make a big difference.
