Massive, 17-foot great white shark bites diving cage: 'The thrill of a lifetime'

An enormous great white shark was captured on film biting and shaking a cage off the coast of Mexico. Reported by FOXNews

Defining the centromere

Centromeres are the chromosomal domains at which the kinetochore, a protein complex required for the correct separation of chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis, is assembled. The incorporation of the histone variant CenH3 into centromeric nucleosomes is a prerequisite for the proper assembly ... Reported by Science Daily

Uncovering the principles behind RNA folding

Using high-throughput next-generation sequencing technology, a researcher found similarities in the folding tendencies among a family of RNA molecules called riboswitches, which play a pivotal role in gene expression. Reported by Science Daily

Large-scale afforestation of African savannas will destroy valuable ecosystems

Scientists from around the world argue that the suggested afforestation of large areas of Africa to mitigate climate change will destroy valuable ecological, agricultural, and tourist areas, while doing little to reduce global CO2 levels. Reported by Science Daily

Novel method turns any 3D object into a cubic style

Computer scientists have developed a computational method to quantify an abstract cubic style. Additionally, their method also enables users to create new shapes that resemble the input shape and exhibit the cubic style. Reported by Science Daily

It takes two -- a two-atom catalyst, that is -- to make oxygen from water

The search for sustainable approaches to generating new fuels has brought scientists back to one of the most abundant materials on Earth -- reddish iron oxide in the form of hematite, also known as rust. Reported by Science Daily

Preventing cyber security attacks lies in strategic, third-party investments

Companies interested in protecting themselves and their customers from cyber-attacks need to invest in themselves and the vendors that handle their data, according to new research. Reported by Science Daily

Twin study shows what's good for the heart is good for the brain

Researchers are giving us double the reasons to pay attention to our cardiovascular health - showing in a recent study that good heart health can equal good brain health. Reported by Science Daily

DNA-reeling bacteria yield new insight on how superbugs acquire drug-resistance

A study has revealed a protein's role in helping bacteria 'reel in' DNA from their environment to acquire new traits, such as antibiotic resistance. Reported by Science Daily

Unique brain changes in people with Huntington's disease

The part of the brain that selectively degenerates in people with Huntington's disease (HD), called the striatum, is almost entirely destroyed in the late stages of the disease. Brain samples from mutant HD gene positive individuals who had not yet developed symptoms by time of death are ... Reported by Science Daily

Model system for distribution of more accurate time signals

Physicists have demonstrated the first next-generation 'time scale' -- a system that incorporates data from multiple atomic clocks to produce a single highly accurate timekeeping signal for distribution. The new time scale outperforms the best existing hubs for disseminating official time ... Reported by Science Daily

Ozone hole is the smallest on record due to 'rare event,' NASA says

Unusual weather patterns in the upper atmosphere over Antarctica caused a drastic reduction in the ozone depletion, leaving the ozone with the smallest hole seen since its discovery in 1982, according to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Reported by FOXNews

New CRISPR genome editing system offers a wide range of versatility in human cells

A team has developed a new CRISPR genome-editing approach by combining two of the most important proteins in molecular biology -- CRISPR-Cas9 and a reverse transcriptase -- into a single machine. Reported by Science Daily

A tiny cavity leads to a strong interaction between light and matter

Researchers have succeeded in creating an efficient quantum-mechanical light-matter interface using a microscopic cavity. Within this cavity, a single photon is emitted and absorbed up to 10 times by an artificial atom. This opens up new prospects for quantum technology. Reported by Science Daily

Biodiversity of insects modeled from space satellite data

With freely available radar data from satellites, biodiversity in forests can be analysed very well. Researchers now report that biodiversity even of tiny insects can be reliably modeled from space. Reported by Science Daily

Breaking the stroma barrier: Study shows a new way to hit cancer with radiation

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are commonly used to treat cancer, but are not always effective and can have toxic side effects. Researchers tested a new radiotherapy technique that sends alpha-emitting particles to stroma cells in pancreatic tumors. The method slowed tumor growth in mice ... Reported by Science Daily

Antarctica's ice sheets contain radioactive chlorine gas 60 years after nuclear tests, study says

An explosive new study has found that nearly 60 years after nuclear tests were performed in the Pacific Ocean, radioactive chlorine is still leaking from ice sheets in Antarctica. Reported by FOXNews

What Causes a Mysterious Paralysis in Children? Researchers Find Viral Clues

In one study, nearly 70 percent of children with the disease had antibodies to common enteroviruses that usually produce mild effects but can sometimes cause neurological problems. Reported by NYTimes

Atomic images reveal unusually many neighbors for some oxygen atoms

The identification of new chemical bonds is crucial for the design of new material structures. A team has found unexpected new configurations of oxygen and nitrogen in graphene. Reported by Science Daily

Researchers watch quantum knots untie

A quantum gas can be tied into knots using magnetic fields. The same researchers who were the first to produce these knots have now studied how the knots behave over time. The surprising result is that the knots untie themselves over a short period of time, before turning into a vortex. Reported by Science Daily

Prime editing: DNA tool could correct 89% of genetic defects

New technology - called prime editing - is like a "genetic word processor" able to re-write DNA. Reported by BBC News

2000-year-old 'lost' street built by Pontius Pilate uncovered in Jerusalem

Researchers date ancient walkway at around 31AD based on age of coins found beneath Reported by Independent

China's next commercial rockets to make test flights in 2020, 2021: Xinhua

China will launch test flights for the next two space rockets in its Smart Dragon series meant for commercial use in 2020 and 2021, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday, as an expected boom in satellite deployment gathers pace. Reported by Reuters
