A Northwestern University research team has engineered the first near-perfect single crystal out of nanoparticles and DNA, using the same structure favored by nature.  “Single crystals are the backbone of many things we rely on -- diamonds for beauty as well as industrial applications, sapphires for lasers and silicon for electronics,” said nanoscientist Chad A. Mirkin.

Scientists are a step closer to understanding how some of the brain’s 100 billion nerve cells co-ordinate their communication. The study is published in the journal Cell Reports. The University of Bristol research team investigated some of the chemical processes that underpin how brain cells co-ordinate their communication.

Cancer has been affecting humanity for years, but each year we get closer to finding a cure.  If we’re not evolving drugs to fighting the Cancer, we’re at least better understanding on how the disease operates. However, the newest findings have delivered a better understanding on how Cancer is developing in the body.
