Researchers create first self-assembled superconductor
Cornell researchers create first self-assembled superconductor ... Building on nearly two decades' worth of research, a multidisciplinary team at Cornell has blazed a new trail by creating a self-assembled, three-dimensional gyroidal superconductor.

How Omicron escapes from antibodies
Dozens of mutations in the spike protein of the Omicron variant help it to evade all four of the classes of antibodies that can target SARS-CoV-2, according to a new study. This includes antibodies generated by the immune systems of vaccinated or previously infected people, as well as most of the monoclonal antibody treatments that have been developed.

Scientists have discovered the origins of the building blocks of life
Rutgers researchers have discovered the origins of the protein structures responsible for metabolism: simple molecules that powered early life on Earth and serve as chemical signals that NASA could use to search for life on other planets.

What is DNA?
DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the molecule that carries the genetic information in all living organisms. It is located in the nucleus of each cell and organized into structures called chromosomes. DNA comprises four nucleotide bases - adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine. The particular sequence of these bases makes up an organism's genes, encoding the proteins and other molecules essential for life. This unique DNA sequence determines an individual organism's traits and characteristics.

an image of some kind of science with words on it that say, cells are the smallest unit of life but they are by no means simple
Cells are the smallest unit of life, but they are by no means simple. Rather, they exhibit the complex design of an intelligent Creator.

Artificial intelligence system rapidly predicts how two proteins will attach
A new machine learning system can predict the structure formed when two proteins dock, in a process that's between 50 to 800 times faster than some software-based methods. This could help scientists better understand biological processes or speed the development of new therapies.
