The structures of many protein molecules remain unsolved even after experts apply an extensive array of approaches. An international collaboration has led to a new, high-performance method that rapidly determined the structure of protein molecules in several cases where previous attempts had failed.
A massive database cataloging the human genome's functional elements -- including genes, RNA transcripts and other products -- is being made available as an open resource to the scientific community, classrooms, science writers and the public, thanks to an international team of researchers.
Drilling holes in trees across Australia and taking core samples from reefs at Ningaloo are two techniques being used to determine the extent of climate change in coming decades.
Animals and plants may need extra habitats to survive the challenge of climate change, according to research by scientists at the University of York.
