Webb, Hubble capture detailed views of DART impact

Two of NASA’s Great Observatories, the James Webb Space Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope, have captured views of a unique NASA experiment designed to intentionally smash a spacecraft into…

“Mystery gene” matures the skeleton of the cell

“I’m a professional pin-in-a-haystack seeker,” geneticist Thijn Brummelkamp responds when asked why he excels at tracking down proteins and genes that other people did not find, despite the fact that…

Model predictions of sea-level change from Greenland melt

Accurate predictions of regional sea-level change are essential in understanding the impact of climate change on coastal areas. Rising sea levels from melting glaciers and ice sheets pose an increasing…

First-ever mycobiome atlas describes associations between cancers and fungi

Poorly understood compared to bacteria and viruses, the new work opens the door to using tell-tale fungi as a diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic tool. An international team of scientists, co-led…
