The American chestnut tree was practically wiped out from the eastern United States 100 years ago by a deadly fungus, but now, thanks to a tweaked gene, researchers are growing trees that appear to be resistant.
Because intelligence is such a strong genetic trait, rapidly advancing genetics research could result in the ability to create a class of super-intelligent humans one-thousand times higher in IQ than today's most brilliant thinkers.
How did life originate? And can scientists create life? These questions not only occupy the minds of scientists interested in the origin of life, but also researchers working with technology of the future.
The U.S. Army is investing in regenerative medicine and 3-D bioprinting, according to officials. Scientists are aiming to print skin cells on the patient using a 3D bio-printer to help injured soldiers recover from the wounds of war.
Just when we thought 3D printing couldn't get any weirder, a Dutch artist used Van Gogh's DNA and a 3D bioprinter to reconstruct his infamous severed ear (The best use for #3D #bioprinting? Reconstructing Van Gogh's severed ear, apparently.
National Geographic Daniel Nocera: Maverick Inventor of the Artificial Leaf National Geographic Life on Earth has converted energy from the sun for at least three billion years, and the sun may be the answer to our energy needs in the future, he...
Organovo’s bioprinting process centers around the identification of key architectural and compositional elements of a target tissue, and the creation of a design that can be utilized by a bioprinter to generate that tissue in the laboratory...
Two engineering students from the University of Toronto have developed a machine that prints functional human skin. Arianna McAllister and Lian Leng received the 2014 James Dyson Award for their invention, the PrintAlive Bioprinter.
There’s something a little creepy-sounding about the phrase “lab-grown organs,” but producing human organs in the lab could have a range of (3D Printing Organs and Blood Vessels Takes a Big Step Toward Reality #3dprinting #bioprinting #future
