"The gene chip is a revolution in technology that is hoped rapidly to advance understanding of biological mechanisms and methods to assess the actions and effects of drugs and chemicals," said Spencer, who estimates there are "hundreds, if not thousands" of laboratories around the...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

...n. She and her colleagues are part of a scientific revolution that began nearly two decades ago with the stunning revelation that elephants communicate over long distances using low-pitched sounds that are barely audible to humans. In 1997, O'Connell-Rodwell took this discovery in a bold, new direction by prop...

Breakthrough isolating embryo-quality stem cells from blood

The symptoms recorded at the time sound to modern diagnosticians as typical of porphyria, though the King's attacks were unusual in their severity and that they didn't appear until he was 50. Several t...
