When plant roots learned to follow gravity

Scentists have identified crucial components and processes which only developed in seed plants around 350 million years ago to enable fast and efficient gravity-driven root growth.

How do molecules rotate in solvents?

Feynman diagrams are a powerful tool in condensed matter physics. By turning highly complex equations into sets of simple diagrams, the method has established...

For ants, unity is strength and health

It is assumed that social life can lead to the rapid spread of infectious diseases and outbreaks. In ants, disease outbreaks are rare and...

Scientists identified genes responsible for difference in flower color of snapdragons

Snapdragon flowers grown in tall spikes with double-sided, round petals. One of the more interesting snapdragon flower facts that a lot of people don’t...

Metamolds: Molding a mold

Scientists at the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione (ISTI-CNR) and the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) have now developed a new...

Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

The greater part of the articles we see are shaded by colors, yet utilizing shades has drawbacks: such colors can fade, modern colors are...

New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other objects, they would...

Recognizing others but not yourself: new insights into the evolution of plant mating

Self-fertilization is an issue, as it prompts inbreeding. Recognition systems that anticipate self-treatment have advanced to guarantee that a plant mates just with a...

Scientists discovered the explanation for puzzling quantum oscillations

Harvard scientists along with MIT scientists recently trapped quantum simulator, a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state. This demonstration suggests whole new periodic...

Cells change tension to make tissue barriers easier to get through

Like modest building blocks, billions of cells form our bodies. In any case, not at all like building obstructs, a few cells can move...

Certain type of neurons is more energy efficient than previously assumed

Researchers at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria have now resolved a contradiction about how a type of neurons generates signals. Scientists have...

Ants perform risk-averse sanitary care of infectious nest mates

Ants care for their debilitated home-mates in various ways, contingent upon their own resistant status. When they themselves are defenseless to unsafe superinfections, they...
