Like Sea Turtles, Sharks Use the Earth’s Magnetic Fields To NavigateNews
A new study published in Current Biology suggests that sharks, much like sea turtles, sense the Earth’s magnetic field to navigate around the ocean.
Real-World Data Suggests Two Doses of Pfizer Vaccine Provides Over 95% ProtectionNews
An observational study published in The Lancet has explored the real-world effectiveness of the Pfizer–BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (BNT162b2) against a variety of outcomes.READ MORE
Why Don't Methane Carbon Isotopes in the Deep Sea Behave as Expected?News
Deep down in the seafloor anaerobic microbes consume large amounts of methane, a potent greenhouse gas when it enters atmosphere. Even though this process is a crucial element of the global carbon cycle, it is still poorly understood. Now, scientists have found the solution to a long-standing enigma in this process: why methane carbon isotopes behave so differently than expected.READ MORE
T cells Use Their Antigen Receptors Like Sticky FingersNews
Intriguing observations have been made about the mechanical processes that take place when an antigen is recognized by a T cell. The information helps scientists piece together the process behind our important defenses.READ MORE
