  1. The most bird-like bird from the Jurassic

    A 150-million-year-old fossilized wing skeleton shows several characteristics that were previously only seen in modern birds.
  2. Amazing technicolor DNA

    A tool that colors sections of DNA in a worm will help scientists understand how genetic material is organized inside cells.
  3. In the right place at the right time

    The place where a mutation happens can be much more important than whether the mutation is a help or a hindrance.
  4. How widespread is dengue in Bangladesh?

    A nation-wide study estimates that dengue infects on average 2.4 million people each year in Bangladesh, with most cases in major cities.
  5. What do cancer cells eat?

    The nutrients available to tumor cells differ depending on the type of cancer and its location.
  6. Taking the brakes off hepatitis C virus replication

    Understanding limitations in the ability of hepatitis C virus to replicate in non-human cells brings us one step closer to animal models suitable for testing vaccine candidates.
  7. Now you see it

    A new study reveals the 3D structure of a mammalian transporter that ferries sugar molecules required to build mature proteins.
  8. Finding the regulator of inflammation in sarcoidosis

    A protein called hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) may be the root cause of the heightened inflammatory response in sarcoidosis patients.
