Credit: CC0 Public Domain Cornell researchers have uncovered the structure of a regulatory mechanism unique to bacteria, opening the door for designing new antibiotics targeted to pathogens. As the threat of antibiotic-resistant germs grows, this discovery offers hope for finding an alternative way to target disease-causing bacteria. In the study, researchers used X-ray crystallography to

Three cases of plague have been diagnosed in China, sparking widespread fears about the spread of the disease, though officials say the risk of an outbreak is low. As Emily Feng reports for NPR, the first cases came to light last week, when authorities in Beijing announced that two infected individuals sought treatment at a

Such pulses, generated by an electromagnet that runs down the center of the tokamak, would make the

On Nov. 19 at 4:59 UTC (Nov. 18 at 11:59 p.m. EST) NASA’s Aqua satellite analyzed Kalmaegi using the AIRS instrument. AIRS showed the strongest storms with coldest cloud top temperatures (purple) as cold as or colder than 210 Kelvin minus 81 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 63.1 degrees Celsius) around the center and over northeastern Luzon,

Decades after farmland was abandoned, plant biodiversity and productivity struggle to recover, according to new University of Minnesota research. Published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution, researchers examined 37 years of data tied to plant biodiversity (i.e., number of different species) and plant productivity (i.e., biomass or amount of plants) related to 21 grasslands
