Young vegetables known as microgreens are reputed to be particularly good for health — now, researchers are trying to find out how microgreens compare to mature veggies.
Scientists are calling for the standardisation of allergy tests, after laboratory trials published in the journal Allergy showed that commercially available tests are not uniformly reliable.
Queensland researchers developed a rapid test, with results that look similar to a COVID-19 home stick test, for each of the four types of dengue virus.
Researchers have developed an artificial photocatalytic system that mimics a natural chloroplast to efficiently convert carbon dioxide in water into valuable methane.
Researchers have found evidence of microscopic creatures that lived in Earth's waterways at least 1.6 billion years ago, which could be our earliest ancestors.
Astronomers have discovered what they believe to be an ultralong-period magnetar — a rare type of neutron star that can produce powerful bursts of energy.
As the first known close-in planet around a core-helium burning star, Halla shows that exoplanet discoveries might still surprise us by appearing where they are least expected.
Urine tests for human cytomegalovirus can identify the risk of end-organ diseases earlier in patients who have been infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1).
Researchers have demonstrated that diagnosis of multiple sclerosis can be significantly improved by measuring the thickness of retinal layers in the eye.
Physicists have discovered the 'chiral bose-liquid' state of matter, opening a new path in the age-old effort to understand the nature of the physical world.
Einstein's theory of general relativity means that we should observe the distant (ancient) universe running much more slowly than the present day, but peering back that far in time has previously proven elusive.
Astrophysicists using large radio telescopes have found the strongest evidence yet for gravitational waves that oscillate with periods of years to decades.
Carbon dioxide can be captured from industrial processes — or even directly from the air — and transformed into clean, sustainable fuels using just the energy from the sun.
Scientists have discovered phosphorus — an essential chemical element for life — locked inside salt-rich ice grains ejected into space from Enceladus, one of Saturn's moons.
An international team of researchers performed detailed observations of a Type Ia supernova which exploded in 2020.
