Human activities are dissolving the seafloor

The seafloor has constantly assumed a pivotal job in controlling the level of ocean acidification. At the point when a burst of acidic water...

Earth’s oceans have absorbed 60 percent more heat per year than previously thought

Climate sensitivity is utilized to assess passable emissions for mitigation methodologies. Most atmosphere researchers have concurred in the previous decade that if worldwide normal...
Research conducted at Princeton University found less nitrogen pollution in the open ocean off the East Coast of the United States than previously estimated. The researchers evaluated nitrogen levels in the calcium carbonate skeleton of this living brain coral (Diploria labyrinthiformis). Photo courtesy of the researchers

130-year-old brain coral reveals encouraging news for open ocean

A 130-year-old brain coral has given the answer, in any event for the North Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast of the United States....
Europe's renewable energy directive is poised to harm the global forests

Europe’s renewable energy directive is poised to harm the global forests

European authorities on definite dialect for a renewable energy source mandate prior this mid-year that will twofold Europe's utilization of sustainable power source by...
Princeton researchers have found ways to bond molecules “like Legos,” theoretically allowing new medicines to be assembled faster and with more flexibility. The research team includes (from left): postdoctoral research associate Thomas Brewer; David MacMillan, the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Chemistry; and graduate students Ian Perry and Patrick Sarver. Photo byC. Todd Reichart, Department of Chemistry

New way to bond molecules that could speed drug discovery

Scientists at the Princeton University in the David MacMillan’s lab have come up with a revolutionary new way to bond molecules that could fundamentally accelerate the...
Todd Hyster’s research group has found a way to make a naturally occurring enzyme take on a new, artificial role.

Teaching enzyme to build new molecules

Enzymes are nature's catalysts, the keys to influencing basic biochemical reactions to take place rapidly enough to maintain life. Even if searching for more...

Swamp microbe has pollution-munching superpower

Princeton researchers have recently discovered that New Jersey swamp holds the potential to diagnose toxins found in sewage, fertilizer runoff and other forms of water pollution. Although,...
The first plasma, a milestone event signaling the beginning of research capabilities, was captured on camera on Sunday, March 5, at 8:13 p.m. at Jadwin Hall at Princeton University, and marked completion of the four-year construction of the device, the Facility for Laboratory Reconnection Experiment (FLARE).

First plasma for new machine to analyze the process that occurs throughout the universe

A millisecond burst of light on a computer screen flagged generation of the principal plasma in an effective new gadget for propelling examination into...
the image at the left shows a worm at the beginning of its reproductive window (day 1 of adulthood) with healthy, squarish unfertilized eggs. Worms who did not receive the treatment (upper right) have abnormally small, misshapen eggs by day 7 of adulthood. Worms who did receive the inhibitor (lower right) still have healthy, squarish eggs on day 7

New research could extend egg health with age

If women don't have had children before their mid-30s, there are fewer chances of having children after that period. But scientists at the Princeton University have...
