By sequencing genes from various cancer cells, researchers turned up dozens of mutations that remove the brakes on cell division and send the cell down the path to cancer.
Expanding the Catalog of cancer
In 2008, researchers created a stir by discovering a whole second family of high-temperature superconductors, consisting of iron compounds instead of copper-and-oxygen-compounds.
New mystery materials
Biochemists watched proteins bind to their targets, switch a cell’s metabolic state and contribute to a tissue’s properties.
Watching proteins at work..
This year, researchers found a promising new tool for storing excess electricity generated from part-time sources like wind and solar power, in the form of a cobalt-phosphorus catalyst.
Toward renewable energy on demand
In 2008, researchers observed in unprecedented detail the dance of cells in a developing embryo, recording and analyzing movies that trace the movements of the roughly 16,000 cells that make up the zebrafish embryo by the end of its first day of development.
The video embryo
In a study that may offer new approaches to treating obesity, scientists discovered that they could morph “good” brown fat, which burns “bad” white fat to generate heat for the body, into muscle and vice versa
“Good” fat, illuminated
Physicists now have the calculations in hand to show that the standard model, which describes most of the visible universe’s particles and their interactions, accurately predicts how much mass protons and neutrons have.
