Cassini data reveal the geological diversity of Saturn’s largest moon.

Ultrasonic speakers steer tiny bead to generate displays that you can touch and hear.

The ultimate goal of genome editing is to be able to make any specific change to the blueprint of life. A ‘search-and-replace’ method for genome editing takes us a giant leap closer to this ambitious goal.

A neural network that teaches itself the laws of physics could help to solve quantum-mechanics mysteries.

The 20-day-old monkey embryos could reopen the debate about how long the human variety should be allowed to grow in a dish.

Debate highlights broader concerns about apps that use the results of direct-to-consumer genetic testing.

An explosion of fossil finds reveals that ancient mammals evolved a wide variety of adaptations allowing them to exploit the skies, rivers and underground lairs.

The system allows researchers more control over DNA changes, potentially opening up conditions that have challenged gene-editors.

Scientists long assumed that new genes appear when evolution tinkers with old ones. It turns out that natural selection is much more creative.

Researchers rapidly corrected finding through discussions on social media and preprints.
