New Imaging Method Reveals Nanoscale Details about DNA
New Imaging Method Reveals Nanoscale Details about DNA
Researchers have developed a new enhanced DNA imaging technique that can probe the structure of individual DNA strands at the nanoscale. Since DNA is at the root of many disease processes, the technique could help scientists gain important insights int...
New Probe Developed for Improved High Resolution Measurement of Brain Temperature
New Probe Developed for Improved High Resolution Measurement of Brain Temperature
The brain is the most temperature-sensitive organ in the body. Even small deviations in brain temperature are capable of producing profound effects�including behavioral changes, cell toxicity, and neuronal cell death. The problem faced by researchers a...
Could Optical Clocks Redefine the Length of a Second?
Could Optical Clocks Redefine the Length of a Second?
GPS-based navigation, communication systems, electrical power grids and financial networks all rely on the precise time kept by a network of around 500 atomic clocks located around the world.
New Imaging Technology Allows Scientists to Peer Even Deeper into Fatty Arteries
New Imaging Technology Allows Scientists to Peer Even Deeper into Fatty Arteries
As plaque accumulates on the inside of arteries, it can cause the arteries to thicken and harden. When that plaque ruptures, it can ultimately block blood flow and lead to a heart attack, stroke or other problem throughout the body.
