The BGU research group's project titled "The Cell as an Economy" studies cellular physiology through reverse engineering and comparing bacterial cell growth to an economy.
New research has shown that had the 1987 Montreal Protocol not limited the damages made to the ozone layer, the world would now already be experiencing the worst-case scenario for climate change.
A study found that hematite might be at the center of the way to make solar energy possible across large areas and through long-term sunless periods.
Earth's magnetic field is something still shrouded in mystery, and Albert Einstein had said that understanding its source was one of the most important mysteries in all of physics.
A tumor model was printed in a bioreactor designed in a lab using a hydrogel sampled and reproduced from the extracellular matrix taken from the patient.
A study tested bones from throughout human history to check the levels of lead concentration in different eras.
Study results show that the dinosaurs' biodiversity was already in steep decline some 10 million years before an asteroid hit the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico.
The three-body problem, which has been a focus of scientific study for over 400 years, represented a stumbling block for famous astronomers such as Isaac Newton and Johannes Kepler.
