Photosynthesis: Discovery of a photobase so strong, it merits moniker of 'super'
A new discovery of a light-induced super photobase is revealing some of photosynthesis' desirable traits. The interdisciplinary team of scientists was able to document the ultrafast dynamics of the super photobase that is 10 million times stronger than anything previously discovered.

Newly discovered enzyme is 'firing pin' for plant immunity
Just like humans, plants have an immune system that helps them fight off infections. Researchers have now identified a key step in how plant cells respond to pathogens -- a family of kinase enzymes that activate the enzymes that make reactive oxygen.

Particles surf their own waves, reveal how microbes and cells move through human body
Surf's up for microbes swimming beside red blood cells. New calculations and experiments model for the first time how spherical particles submerged in gooey liquid travel along a flexible rubber sheet; comparable conditions are common in the human body, such as blood cells flowing through a capillary or the journeys of self-propelled microbes. All these particles, it turns out, catch a wave.

Mapping vast unknown territory of long non-coding RNA
Scientists have developed a powerful method for exploring the properties of mysterious molecules called long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), some of which have big roles in cancer and other serious conditions.

Gene therapy via skin protects mice from lethal cocaine doses
A new study shows that skin stem cells, modified via CRISPR and transplanted back to donor mice, can protect addicted mice from cocaine-seeking and overdose.
