A team led by scientists at UW–Madison has exploited those limitations of chemical combinations to write a cookbook with hundreds of recipes that have the potential to give rise to life.
The research provides insight into how a human cell preserves the integrity of its DNA through repeated cell division.
A new NASA collaboration of astrobiology researchers co-led by a UW–Madison professor will spend the next five years dedicating their efforts to understanding how life evolved on earth, and how it possibly could evolve on other worlds.
The high-resolution maps can help conservation managers focus their efforts where they are most likely to help birds — in individual counties or forests, rather than across whole states or regions.
An international team of researchers led by UW–Madison biologists has assembled the largest evolutionary tree of scorpions yet, showing seven independent instances in which the distinctive eight-legged creatures evolved venom compounds toxic to mammals.
Native species declined while the average number of different crops grown in these states was cut in half and as modern agriculture began to focus on intensive production of corn and soybeans
UW–Madison will join a first-of-its-kind collaborative network for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which researchers use to probe large biological molecules like proteins and RNA.
New research found that when songbirds sing during non-mating seasons, it’s because singing releases an opioid naturally produced in their brain —that’s right, a compound with the same biological makeup of the highly addictive painkillers.
Kevin Eliceiri says he has always believed that science is best done by building on the work of others and openly sharing what you have done.
New research finds that It finds that 40 percent of walleye populations are overharvested, which is ten times higher than the estimates fisheries managers currently use.
