Speedy computation enables scientists to reconstruct an animal's development cell by cell
Researchers have developed a new computational method that can rapidly track the three-dimensional movements of cells in such data-rich images. Using the method, scientists can essentially automate much of the time-consuming process of reconstructing an animal's developmental building plan cell (...)

Astronauts to test free-flying 'housekeeper' robots
Inspired by science fiction, three bowling ball-size free-flying Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites (SPHERES) have been flying inside the International Space Station since 2006. These satellites provide a test bed for development and research, each having its (...)

Extending Moore's Law: Shrinking transistor size for smaller, more efficient computers
Over the years, computer chips have gotten smaller thanks to advances in materials science and manufacturing technologies. This march of progress, the doubling of transistors on a microprocessor roughly every two years, is called Moore's Law. But there's one component of the chip-making process (...)

New technology for diagnosis of cancer cells
The type of therapy a cancer patient receives largely depends on the eye of a pathologist. However, human judgment is, by its very nature, subject to variation. To enhance the quality of diagnosis, scientists have developed a software that identifies cell structures and proteins in order to (...)
