Climate-stressed trees get a boost from new microbial partnerships
Climate-stressed trees get a boost from new microbial partnerships
Climate change is subjecting plants to rapid shifts in temperature and precipitation, pushing them into new ranges and stressing them in old ones. Trees may have an easier time adapting in both cases by making new microbial friends underground, according to new research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The search for habitable planets expands
A University of Michigan astronomer and his team are suggesting a new way to expand the search for habitable planets that takes into account a zone not previously considered: the space between the star and what's called soot line in planet-forming disks. Worlds that form in this region-a disk of dust rotating around a central star from which planets may be built-could have surfaces rich in volatile carbon compounds quite different from Earth's.

Exploring the links between diet and cancer
Exploring the links between diet and cancer
Omer Yilmaz's work on how diet influences intestinal stem cells could lead to new ways to treat or prevent gastrointestinal cancers. Every three to five days, all of the cells lining the human intestine are replaced. That constant replenishment of cells helps the intestinal lining withstand the damage caused by food passing through the digestive tract.

Tiny diamond rotor could improve protein studies
Tiny diamond rotor could improve protein studies
A new way of machining microscale rotors from diamond crystal can enable ultrasensitive NMR devices for probing proteins and other materials. Many of the biological materials that researchers are most interested in studying, including those associated with major diseases, don't lend themselves to the conventional methods that researchers typically use to probe a material's structure and chemistry.
