A study of how honey bees forage for food has led to development of an algorithm that major web-hosting companies are using to streamline internet services. The project also has attracted a national award for the Georgia Tech team that conducted the research.
A nanoparticle commonly used in food, cosmetics, sunscreen, and other products can have subtle effects on the activity of genes expressing enzymes that address oxidative stress inside at least two types of living cells.
The northeast Pacific’s largest marine heatwave on record was at least partially caused by El Niño climate patterns. And unusually warm water events in that ocean could potentially become more frequent with rising levels of greenhouse gases.
For scientists listening in on the faint whispers of brain neurons, a first-ever robotic technique for cleaning the tiny devices that record the signals could facilitate a new level of automation in neuroscience research.
