How do you train a computer to identify the type of Mars rocks it sees? #Mars #geology #machinelearning #deeplearning
Scientists used DNA sequencing to identify what microbes live on or near the root systems of farmed and wild wheat. They…
Our DNA is a crucial part of creating every cell in our bodies. It is the instruction manual our cells read to know exactly what to do and how to act. But how…
Research conducted in China has made way for potential treatment options for treating breast cancer metastasis in lymph nodes.
In a recent study, a group of scientists from the UK evaluated whether a combination of several proteins and a cancer drug that interferes with DNA replication…
An exciting recent clinical trial developed a personalized vaccination as a safe and effective approach in ovarian cancer treatment.
For tumor cells that survive treatment, one of their tricks is using microRNA molecules to communicate with one another and stay alive.
Behavior scales and MRI scans are used to connect possible psychosocial effects on pediatric cancer patients post chemotherapy.
How can we search for life as we don’t know it? It's hard to look for signs of life beyond Earth. It's a little easier if we assume that life out there is like Earth life. But what if it isn't? A team of scientists recently developed a method of detection for identifying life forms we haven't yet imagined.

Using traps to lure parasites away may be a good alternative to pesticides for aquatic farms. But what attracts them?
How does the body connect our nutrition to our development? A receptor in the brain plays a key role in puberty and growth!
How old and young people react to the Prisoner’s Dilemma The Prisoner's Dilemma is a thought experiment where two suspects are asked to betray one another in exchange for lesser sentences. Studies show that when different people of different age groups and backgrounds are presented with a Prisoner's Dilemma, they react in different ways.
This study was the first to report on different age groups’ interactions with different people when presented with a multi-round Prisoner’s Dilemma game.
Scientists hope to restore biocrusts by transplanting healthy salvaged biocrusts to damaged areas. This method was found to successfully increase soil stability and plant drought resistance both in the field and in greenhouse plots
Scientists discover a bacterial species that could potentially clean up uranium contamination in the environment following mining activity and nuclear waste production. Experimental results show ~90% uranium removal over the span of 2 days.
Artificial intelligence can learn to play a complex war game Reinforcement learning is a type of artificial intelligence that can teach a computer to play a simple game like Backgammon. A team of scientists recently learned that it also isn’t too bad at playing the very complex war game called Battleground.
A team of scientists recently learned that "reinforcement learning" can be used to play a very complex war game.
Can a computer learn to play Settlers of Catan? It's not easy to teach a computer to play board games with lots of rules like Settlers of Catan. This team of scientists used an algorithm callled a Monte-Carlo Tree Search to make a skilled "artificial intelligence" Catan player that learns as it goes.
At a glance, board games may seem to have no connection to artificial intelligence (AI). However, board games are quite useful when studying AI. When an AI is advanced enough to beat the best player in the world at a game like Chess or Go, it’s a huge scientific achievement. One strategy for writing an AI is called…
Nothing says “foodie” like a dish garnished with microgreens, which are immature shoots of common vegetables harvested after just 2 weeks. But it’s not only gourmet cooks who get excited about microgreens. Microgreens are also emerging as a top choice for consumers with special dietary needs, such as patients…
