Anglerfish are famous for their head-mounted bulbs that light up the inky blackness of the deepest oceans, but exactly what's going on in that process is still relatively unknown. To find out, researchers from Cornell University have now sequenced the genome of the bacteria that live inside those lightbulbs, and found a strange story of symbiosis still in progress...

A strong research paper from scientists at the Wellcome Sanger Institute has again raised doubts over the safety and accuracy of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technique. The study suggests that the gene editing process can cause extensive unforeseen and unpredictable alterations to DNA sequences outside of the intended targets...

A new study from researchers at Oxford University has used a virtual reality-based treatment to help people overcome a clinically significant fear of heights. The VR treatment is the first to demonstrate the effectiveness of a completely automated therapy guided by a computer-generated virtual therapist that responds to the patient's voice...

A rocky planet with Earth-like temperatures just 11 light years away from us caused quite a stir when it was discovered last year. Its close proximity and potential to harbor alien life made it a good candidate for further study, and scientists continuing to poke around this pocket of the universe are continuing to unravel its mysteries, with new findings shedding further light on its comp
While your genes are more or less set in stone, the way they're expressed can be changed by environmental or lifestyle factors, and there's evidence that these changes can even be inherited from parents. A new study has found that male mice who spend time in cold environments may pass down this "experience" to their kids, in the form of higher levels of warming brown fat. .. Continue Readi
The results of one of the world's longest in-depth studies examining the relationship between cannabis use and chronic pain is raising doubts over whether cannabis reduces either pain severity or opioid use. The study, recently published in Lancet Public Health, is proving controversial as its findings contradict a growing body of research suggesting exactly the opposite... Continue Readin
A team at the University of Illinois at Chicago has uncovered a new mechanism that helps explain the remarkably rapid, and long-lasting, antidepressant effects of the controversial drug ketamine. The exciting research reveals the drug operates in a similar way to conventional SSRI antidepressants, except is it significantly more effective... Continue Reading Breakthrough study finds new me
A new study from a team at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has revealed an unexpected correlation between Alzheimer's disease and high levels of human herpes virus DNA. The controversial results have rekindled an old hypothesis suggesting viruses may play a part in the development of this devastating degenerative disease...

Transborder Studio has unveiled plans to add a contemporary extension to a Holocaust research centre in western Oslo, Norway, composed of box-shaped volumes that will be built into a hill. Read more
A remarkable new study led by researchers at Columbia University has found that the brain's complex systems for processing taste can be effectively manipulated. In mice, the researchers were able to directly manipulate neurons in the brain, removing the ability to taste sweet and bitter foods, or to make sweet foods taste bitter, and vice versa...
