Using longer exposures and sophisticated processing techniques, scientists have taken extraordinarily high-fidelity pictures of the Sun’s outer atmosphere – what we call the corona – and discovered fine details that have never been detected before. The Sun is a complex object, and with the soon-to-be-launched Parker Solar Probe we’re on the verge of learning so

After years of debate, the current geological epoch has finally been cut into three sections. While some geologists clearly think it’s a justified change, others feel the move was premature and deserved further discussion. The International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) recently ratified the division of the Holocene into the Meghalayan, Northgrippian, and Greenlandian ages

America’s national parks might seem like an obvious refuge from city smog. Not so, according to new research that finds popular parks’ levels of ozone—a major air pollutant—match those of the country’s largest metropolitan areas. The study, published Wednesday in Science Advances, also suggests national park visitation drops when ozone levels soar. But some experts

At the high temperatures achieved in the very young Universe, not only can particles and photons be spontaneously created, given enough energy, but also antiparticles and unstable particles as well, resulting in a primordial particle-and-antiparticle soup.Brookhaven National Laboratory 13.8 billion years ago, at the moment of the Big Bang, the Universe was the hottest it’s

ROME (Reuters) – A new high-tech forensic study of the blood flows on the Shroud of Turin, the mysterious linen some Christians believe is Jesus’ burial cloth, is the latest analysis to suggest that it is most likely a mediaeval fake.

A four-year survey of the entire sky has just delivered results, and they are awesome: we have confirmation that the standard cosmological model, which describes the age, rate of expansion, history and contents of the Universe, is indeed accurate. For four years, the European Southern Observatory’s Planck satellite sailed the skies, constantly scanning and collecting

A small, faint galaxy residing some 65 million light-years away has been threatening to upend scientists’ entire paradigm of dark matter—the supposedly ubiquitous particles thought to pervade the universe like a hidden cosmic skeleton. All galaxies should be surrounded by a more massive cloud of dark matter, the thinking goes, but a team of astronomers

In one of the largest studies of its kind, scientists have made a fascinating discovery. Nearly 40 percent of people have a first memory that is entirely fictional. It’s not that their memories are muddled and out of sequence – but that they never happened at all. Researchers surveyed 6,641 people about the earliest memories

Amino acid sequence profiles or position-specific scoring matrices (PSSMs) are matrices in which each row contains evolutionary information regarding each site of a sequence. PSSMs have been widely used for bioinformatics studies, including sequence similarity searches, multiple sequence alignments, and evolutionary analyses. In addition, modern sequence-based prediction methods of protein properties by machine learning algorithms

In the last decade, new technologies, collectively known as next generation sequencing (NGS), have come to dominate the market [1]. Although NGS has a wide range of applications, the use of NGS in transcriptome profiling, called massively parallel RNA-sequencing (RNA-Seq), is perhaps most popular [2]. Like microarray, RNA-Seq is used to quantify relative transcript abundance

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has dramatically reduced the time and the cost of producing genome sequences using massively parallel technologies [1]; therefore, we observe exponential increase of sequencing data [2]. The reduction of cost and sequencing the time allowed to develop many applications, such as biosurveillance, bioforensics, and infectious disease epidemiology [3]. What is more, genome-scale
