Platelet-Like Particles Augment Natural Blood Clotting for Treating Trauma
A new class of synthetic platelet-like particles could augment natural blood clotting for the emergency treatment of traumatic injuries – and potentially offer doctors a new option for curbing surgical bleeding and addressing certain blood clotting disorders without the need for transfusions of natural platelets.
Sequencing of five African fishes reveals diverse molecular mechanisms underlying evolution
Researchers have sequenced the genomes and transcriptomes of five species of African cichlid fishes and uncovered a variety of features that enabled the fishes to thrive in new habitats and ecological niches within the Great Lakes of East Africa.
Study Shows Cellular RNA Can Template DNA Repair in Yeast
Scientists have shown that RNA produced within cells of a common budding yeast can serve as a template for repairing the most devastating DNA damage – a break in both strands of a DNA helix.
Marine protected areas might not be enough to help overfished reefs recover
Pacific corals and fish can both smell a bad neighborhood, and use that ability to avoid settling in damaged reefs.
Oliver Brand Assumes Top Post at Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology
Oliver Brand, a professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been named executive director of the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN), one of nine interdisciplinary research institutes (IRIs) at Georgia Tech.
Multiple UAVs Perform Autonomous Formation Flight
In one of the first autonomous demonstrations, the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has successfully commanded three fully autonomous, collaborating UAVs. The machines flew in close formation at the same altitude, separated by approximately 50 meters as they executed figure-eight patterns.
