Opinionated Science Episode 48: From Culture Plate to Dinner Plate –The Lingering Promise of Lab-Based Meat
This latest episode is an audio version of a cover story from our online magazine, The Scientific Observer. In that article, writer Tanaaz Khan explores the “lingering” promise of lab-based meat, investigating whether this future food will deliver for the world’s rapidly growing population.
A Conversation on Immunity
Dr. Jenna Macciochi is a lecturer in immunology at the University of Sussex, where her research centers on understanding the role that nutrition and lifestyle play in human immunity. Technology Networks sat down with Dr. Macciochi to ask: how can we really stay well? What has immunological research taught us about the effects of modern lifestyle on our bodies and what are some of the latest breakthroughs in this field?
DNA Analysis Can Help To Diagnose Subtypes of Heart Disease
Researchers have shown that some subtypes of cardiomyopathy can accurately be diagnosed by analyzing how molecules of DNA inside heart cells are organized into chromatin.
Arctic Sea-Ice Would Be Sacrificed Not Saved by Proposed Glass Microsphere Covering
A proposal to cover Arctic sea ice with layers of tiny hollow glass spheres the thickness of a human hair would actually accelerate sea-ice loss and warm the climate rather than creating thick ice and lowering the temperature as proponents claim.
Pumping Draws Up Groundwater That May Have Contaminants in Tow
Human activity in the form of water pumping may be speeding up the water cycle in aquifers, bringing surface-borne pollutants into "old" groundwater.
The Binomial Test
The Binomial test, sometimes referred to as the Binomial exact test, is a test used in sampling statistics to assess whether a proportion of a binary variable is equal to some hypothesized value. In this article, we explore the key features of this test and walk through an example test.

Standardizing Analytical Data With AnIML
This listicle presents AnIML — an open XML-based, vendor-neutral and human-readable file format that can be used to store data from different analytical instruments. This facilitates the achievement of FAIR (i.e., findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) data which is a prerequisite for proper data management, data stewardship and a successful digital transformation strategy.
Five Ways Pharma Companies Can Keep Up With Demand
This listicle will explore five key risk factors pharmaceutical facilities need to understand, which they can then ultimately renovate to improve output.
