June 14, 2023

People with weakened immune systems are at constant risk of infection. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a common environmental bacterium, can colonize different body parts, such as the lungs, leading to persistent, chronic infections that can last…

Snowflake Yeast
May 11, 2023

"An Experiment Repeated 600 Times Finds Hints to Evolution’s Secrets." Ratcliff and Yunker groups show that snowflakes of yeast in a lab offer insights into how life on Earth transitioned from single-celled into multicellular organisms.
Centipedes are known for their wiggly walk. With tens to hundreds of legs, they can traverse any terrain without stopping.
May 5, 2023

Intrigued to see if the many limbs could be helpful for locomotion in this world, a team of physicists, engineers, and mathematicians at the Georgia Institute of Technology are using this style of movement to their…
