After the Big Bang came the earliest galaxies. Due to the expansion of the universe, these galaxies are receding away from us. This causes their emissions to be redshifted (shifted towards longer ...
Scientists have discovered a convergent mechanism that may be responsible for how two top-ranked genetic risk factors for autism spectrum disorder/intellectual disability (ASD/ID) lead to these ...
Adolescents are over three times more vulnerable to developing a cannabis addiction than adults, but may not be at increased risk of other mental health problems related to the drug, according to a ...
A 15-year study details the origins and diversity of every known mineral on Earth, a landmark body of work that will help reconstruct the history of life on Earth, guide the search for new minerals ...
Researchers investigating the exposure of small mammals to plastics in England and Wales have found traces in the feces of more than half of the species examined. The densities of plastic excreted ...
Many antibody tests have been developed since the pandemic started, but very few are designed to specifically detect the Sars-CoV-2 neutralizing antibodies which prevent infection. Based on protein ...
Pesticides and heavy metals in soil may have detrimental effects on the cardiovascular system, according to a review paper.
New research finds that machine-learning algorithms can help health care staff distinguish the two conditions. Researchers show how algorithms may be effective predictive tools using a few simple ...
Current AIs are very accurate but inflexible at image recognition. Exactly why this is remains a mystery. Researchers have developed a method called 'Raw Zero-Shot' to assess how neural networks ...
A new article synthesizes the impact of metal and coal mines on salmon and trout in northwestern North America, and highlights the need for more complete and transparent science to inform mining ...
DNA testing reveals that the wild ancestors of the common domestic and feral pigeons, now extinct in many parts of the world, are still living on islands in Scotland and Ireland.
To better understand snake fungal disease (SFD), a team of researchers has conducted a genetic study of the pathogen. The goal was to determine whether SFD originated in the U.S. or was introduced ...
