An oxygen cylinder could hold even more gas if it were filled with sponge-like powders, chemists report.The powders are a type of metal–organic framework (MOF): sponge-like materials in which metal atoms are connected by organic groups, creating a porous network with many promising applications

Functional biological circuits can be printed on paper, reports a team led by James Collins at Boston University in Massachusetts.The team synthesized cell-free gene networks from off-the-shelf parts and freeze-dried them on to paper. When later rehydrated, the networks worked as programmable in vitro

Machines that move by bending in response to moisture can be made by exposing thin sheets of graphene oxide to sunlight.A team led by Hong-Bo Sun at Jilin University in Changchun, China, focused sunlight on one side of graphene oxide paper. The ultraviolet radiation
Nearly a decade after writing a scathing critique of biomedical research, 'Why Most Published Research Findings Are False', Stanford University scientist John Ioannidis has published a follow-up. The health-policy researcher suggests a blueprint for making scientific results more reliable, including increasing the statistical certainty of

Sequenced genomes reveal mutations that disable single genes and can point to new drugs.
Nature explores the most-cited research of all time.
Scientists know a lot about the virus that causes Ebola — but there are many puzzles that they have yet to solve.
Asteroid retrieval is a distraction, says Richard P. Binzel. Better steps to interplanetary travel abound.
John P. A. Ioannidis and colleagues asked the most highly cited biomedical scientists to score their top-ten papers in six ways.
