Better biosensor technology created for stem cells

Researchers have created better biosensor technology that may help lead to safe stem cell therapies for treating Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and other neurological disorders. The technology, which features a unique graphene and gold-based platform and high-tech imaging, monitors the fate of stem cells by detecting genetic material (RNA) involved in turning such cells into brain cells.

Machine learning analyses help unlock secrets of stable 'supercrystal'

Beyond solids, liquids, gases, plasma, and other examples only accessible under extreme conditions, scientists are constantly searching for other states of matter. Although newly discovered states tend to be short-lived, a recent experiment transformed a mixture of two materials into a novel state of matter with a much longer lifetime - a supercrystal.
