Around a million years ago, large-scale ocean circulation changed dramatically during the switch from ∼41,000- to ∼100,000-year long glacial cycles. Pena and Goldstein analyzed the – [Read More]

Keeping societies stable and managing Earth's resources sustainably depend on doing a good, steady job producing and distributing food. West et al. asked what combinations – [Read More]

Proteins, the work-horses of the cell, are made on a messenger RNA (mRNA) template. An enzyme called aminoacyl tRNA synthetases (AARSs) attaches the correct amino acid to a transfer – [Read More]

Animal cells divide by mitosis. Chromosomes become condensed and congregate on the mitotic spindle in the center of the cell—the midzone. The spindle then separates sister chromosomes, p – [Read More]
18 Jul
To protect other cells or tissue from injury, professional garbage-collecting cells called phagocytes gobble up dead cells. Sometimes phagocytes become overwhelmed and could use some – [Read More]

Mention of organoids—organlike structure growing in a Petri dish—might conjure up images of science fiction. However, the generation of organoids is very real, as is the increased und – [Read More]

Most catalysts for organic oxidation chemistry—whether biochemical or artificial—contain a transition metal like iron or palladium. Uyanik et al. now show that iodine can tak – [Read More]
18 Jul
Electron transfer dynamics underlie many chemical and biochemical reactions. Erk et al. examined the charge migration between individual carbon and iodine atoms during dissociation – [Read More]
18 Jul
To build miniature optical devices, scientists are using silicon to replace bulky three-dimensional devices with flat versions. A patterned surface consisting of dense arrays of nanoscale – [Read More]

Quantum states can be delicate. Attempts to process and manipulate quantum states can destroy the encoded information. Nigg et al. encoded the quantum state of a single qubit – [Read More]
18 Jul
The time standards set by atomic clocks are usually the domain of national metrology laboratories. Li et al. modulated the phase of two closely spaced laser lines to generate – [Read More]
18 Jul
Ocean eddies with diameters of tens to hundreds of kilometers are an important component of water transport on a global scale. Averaged over periods of many years, ocean circulation – [Read More]
