As DNA Tests Become More Common, Researchers Rapidly Add Equipment to Keep Up

April 25 is National DNA Day commemorating the day in 1953 when scientists published papers in the journal Nature on the structure of DNA. Now, 64 years later, the concept is much more familiar to the average person and researchers are challenged to keep pace with ever-changing technology.

Giant Shipworm

Science Fiction Horror Wriggles Into Reality with Discovery of Giant Sulfur-Powered Shipworm

Our world seems to grow smaller by the day as biodiversity rapidly dwindles, but Mother Earth still has a surprise or two up her sleeve. An international team of researchers were the first to investigate a never before studied species a giant, black, mud dwelling, worm-like animal. The findings will be published online in the Apr. 17 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

'Neuron-Reading' Nanowires Could Accelerate Development of Drugs to Treat Neurological Diseases

Image43_color.jpg

A team led by engineers at the University of California San Diego has developed nanowires that can record the electrical activity of neurons in fine detail. The new nanowire technology could one day serve as a platform to screen drugs for neurological diseases and could enable researchers to better understand how single cells communicate in large neuronal networks.
