›  New CRISPR technique skips over portions of genes that can cause disease
In a new study in cells, researchers have adapted CRISPR gene-editing technology to cause the cell's internal machinery to skip over a small portion of a gene when transcribing it into a template for protein building. Such targeted editing could one day be useful for treating genetic diseases caused by mutations in the genome, such as Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, Huntington's disease or some cancers.
›  How a 'jellyfish'-shaped structure relieves pressure in your cells
Scientists have solved the structure of a key protein that senses when our cells swell.
›  Novel sensors could enable smarter textiles
A fabric coating with thin, lightweight and flexible pressure sensors that can be embedded into shoes and other functional garments, sensors that can measure everything from the light touch of a finger to being driven over by a forklift. And it's comfortable to boot!
›  Human wastewater valuable to global agriculture, economics
It may seem off-putting to some, but human waste is full of nutrients that can be recycled into valuable products that could promote agricultural sustainability and better economic independence for some developing countries, says a new study.
›  Researchers are developing vaccines for human parasites
Researchers outline their lessons learned while creating vaccine candidates for hookworm and schistosomiasis.
›  Genetic differences in trees untouched by mountain pine beetles
A researcher has discovered that mountain pine beetles may avoid certain trees within a population they normally would kill due to genetics in the trees.
›  Twisted electronics open the door to tunable 2-D materials
Researchers report an advance that may revolutionize the field of 2-D materials such as graphene: a 'twistronic' device whose characteristics can be varied by simply varying the angle between two different 2-D layers placed on top of one another. The device provides unprecedented control over the angular orientation in twisted-layer devices, and enables researchers to study the effects of twist angle on electronic, optical, and mechanical properties in a single device.
›  Men and women show surprising differences in seeing motion
Researchers have found an unexpected difference between men and women. On average, their studies show, men pick up on visual motion significantly faster than women do.
›  More workers working might not get more work done, ants (and robots) show
For ants and robots operating in confined spaces like tunnels, having more workers does not necessarily mean getting more work done. Just as too many cooks in a kitchen get in each other's way, having too many robots in tunnels creates clogs that can bring the work to a grinding halt.
›  Reverse osmosis membranes with tunable thickness
Researchers used electrospray technology to create ultra-thin, ultra-smooth polyamide membranes for reverse osmosis. This scalable process allows for better control of a membrane's fundamental properties, avoids the use of chemical baths, and can be applied to a variety of membrane separation processes.
›  Under pressure, hydrogen offers a reflection of giant planet interiors
Lab-based mimicry allowed an international team of physicists to probe hydrogen under the conditions found in the interiors of giant planets -- where experts believe it gets squeezed until it becomes a liquid metal, capable of conducting electricity.
›  Autism linked to egg cells' difficulty creating large proteins
New work reveals that the genetic factors underlying fragile X syndrome, and potentially from other autism-related disorders, stem from defects in the cell's ability to create unusually large protein structures. They found that mutations in the gene Fmr1 create problems in the and the reproductive system. They can lead to the most-common form of inherited autism, fragile X syndrome, as well as to premature ovarian failure.
