If granted, this would allow them to directly study humans' earliest stage of development and would mark the first approval by a national regulatory body to employ the CRISPR/Cas9 system on viable human embryos.
The genetic manipulation of human IVF embryos is set to start in Britain for the first time following a licence application by scientists who want to understand why some women suffer repeated miscarriages.
Because nerves can't do it alone
But you know what it does sound like? The cloaking device used by the Yautja--that's the actual name of the predatory aliens in the Predator movies.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known by the acronym DARPA, is the Pentagon's super-secret entity responsible for developing all kinds of advanced weapons and other systems, including your ability to read this story.
Imagine a computer processor able to harness super-position, to calculate the result of an arbitrarily large number of permutations of a complex problem simultaneously. Imagine how entanglement could be used to allow systems on different sides of the
Last month, researchers at Stanford University announced that they were able to create a form of yeast that produce a number of different psychoactive compounds, including THC, one of the primary components found in marijuana.

How does knowledge grow? Sometimes it begins with one insight and grows into many branches; other times it grows as a complex and interconnected network.
Aiming for a leg or shooting a weapon from a criminal's hands may be an option for cops in the movies, but real police officers are trained to shoot for the center of mass, not necessarily to kill, but to stop – although the end result can often be
Some days ago we explained how everyone (including low-tech terrorists "armed" with a mobile device and an internet connection), could have the operational equivalent of a ground-based radar-detection system to predict (and avoid) US airstrikes a

The current fretting over who will win the battle between cable and over-the-top on the internet ("OTT") reminds me of the battle between Blu-ray and DVDs; it was a battle between dinosaurs just before extinction,
When personal 3D printers hit the market a few years ago, it seemed like it wouldn't be long before every household had its own, sitting right next to the laptop.

Remember those cartoon characters with corrugated arms that sprung out and retracted like slinkies?
Jim Simons was a mathematician and cryptographer who realized: the complex math he used to break codes could help explain patterns in the world of finance. Billions later, he's working to support the next generation of math teachers and scholars.
On October 21, 2014, Alan Eustace donned a custom-built, 500-pound spacesuit, attached himself to a weather balloon, and rose above 135,000 feet, from which point he dove to Earth, breaking both the sound barrier and previous records for high-altitud
