A low-cost paper-based test can rapidly detect low levels of Zika virus in human blood samples.James Collins at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge and his colleagues previously designed a paper-based test for Ebola virus. Specially programmed RNA 'sensors' embedded in paper strips

Physicists have devised a fast, accurate model that recreates the gravitational-wave signals produced by spiralling and colliding neutron stars. The model could help researchers to work out the stars' properties.The US Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is looking for gravitational waves — ripples

Seemingly unrelated biological traits, such as the risk of schizophrenia and of inflammatory bowel disease, can be linked to the same gene variants.One version of a gene can affect multiple traits, but identifying whether a specific gene variant affects two unrelated pathways has been

Astronomers have made precise measurements of the mass of a supermassive black hole.Aaron Barth of the University of California in Irvine focused the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile on the black hole at the heart of NGC 1332, a galaxy that is

Cells from people with type 1 diabetes can be reprogrammed so that they produce insulin in response to glucose when implanted into mice. This suggests that patients with the disease could one day be treated with their own reprogrammed cells.In previous work, Douglas Melton

A laser-based technique permits the delivery of energy-generating organelles called mitochondria into single mammalian cells, where they can restore metabolic activities.Mitochondria have their own DNA, which can cause disease if mutated, and researchers have been looking for ways to isolate the organelles, correct genetic
