For the first time, researchers have witnessed the process of a protein complex packaging DNA into chromosomes prior to cell division.
Scientists from QuTech in Delft have now realised a programmable two-qubit quantum processor in silicon.
Observation has helped an international team of researchers validate theoretical predictions about the such stellar explosions.
The mathematical model can also help efforts to re-engineer Cas9 to not make life-threatening mistakes while editing our DNA.
The invention could lead to power-producing smart windows for buildings, cars and display screens, according to the authors.
The discovery might lead to the development of an energy-efficient way of processing data, in data centres, for example.
Experiments confirm the first chiral phonon that could enable exotic forms of electronics.
Installation of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument begins at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona.
The team found the brain can begin processing value just 80 milliseconds after seeing something.
The immune signal, IL-33, is crucial in allowing the brain to maintain the optimal number of synapses during development.
