Instead of just flattening the COVID-19 curve, can we 'crush' it?  LIVE SCIENCE · 1 day
A veteran public health scholar argues we can defeat COVID-19 in just 10 weeks if we take a "concerted and determined" approach. more
A metal-free blue chromophore derived from plant pigments  Science Magazine · 1 day
Blue natural pigments are rare, especially among plants. However, flowering species that evolved to attract Hymenoptera pollinators are colored by blue anthocyanin-metal complexes. Plants lacking anthocyanins are pigmented by betalains but are... more
New temperature sensing mechanism in plants  SCIENCE DAILY · 1 day
Cell biologists reveal the phytochrome B molecule has unexpected dynamics activated by temperature, and behaves differently depending on the temperature and type of light. As climate change warms the world, crop growth patterns and flowering times... more
Vaporizable endoskeletal droplets via tunable interfacial melting transitions  Science Magazine · 1 day
Liquid emulsion droplet evaporation is of importance for various sensing and imaging applications. The liquid-to-gas phase transformation is typically triggered thermally or acoustically by low–boiling point liquids, or by inclusion of solid... more
Genome elimination mediated by gene expression from a selfish chromosome  Science Magazine · 1 day
Numerous plants and animals harbor selfish B chromosomes that "drive" or transmit themselves at super-Mendelian frequencies, despite long-term fitness costs to the organism. Currently, it is unknown how... more
