A mathematical model helps explain the key role that one pigment cells plays in making sure that each stripe on a zebrafish ends up exactly where it belongs.
It's nearly impossible to break a dry spaghetti noodle into only two pieces. A new MIT study shows how and why it can be done.
Scientists from EPFL and Berkeley have developed a computational method for designing a new type of two-dimensional carbon materials called Schwarzites.
A multidisciplinary team of researchers from the National University of Singapore has developed an artificial intelligence technology platform that could potentially change the way drug combinations are being designed, hence enabling doctors to determine the most effective drug combination for a patient quickly.
Computer analysis aids the formulation of methanol-based renewable fuels that can operate under compression ignition conditions.
A new study published in the scientific journal PLOS Computational Biology led by Patrick Bradley, a postdoctoral scholar in Katherine Pollard's laboratory at the Gladstone Institutes, found a new approach to identify the genes that may be important to help microbes live successfully in the human gut.
To understand why some patients with appendix cancer respond to standard treatment while others do not, University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center researchers, in collaboration with Foundation Medicine, performed genetic profiling on 703 appendiceal tumors -- the largest such study of this disease to date -- to compare mutations present in both cancer types.
In a collaborative study by Lawson Health Research Institute, The Mind Research Network and Brainnetome Center, researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that analyzes brain scans to better classify illness in patients with a complex mood disorder and help predict their response to medication.
Big-data analysis of popular online dating website shows users seek 25 percent more desirable mates, even though the chances of getting a response are lower.
Virtually all functions in our bodies require precise interactions between radically different types of molecules. The vast majority of the time, these encounters yield nothing, but a special few sustain life as we know it. Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas are pursuing what differentiates a fruitful encounter from a dud. Their ultimate goal is to prevent the relationships that become toxic and result in disease.
