Taking Their Vitamins: Researchers Find Bacterioplankton Rely on Environmental Vitamin B1 Rather Than Making Their Own
Researchers find that more bacterioplankton utilize vitamin B1 or B1 precursors from their environment than synthesize their own.
Not All Analyses Are Equal: Physicists Create Guidelines for Non-Equilibrium Measurements of Many-Body Systems
When it comes to non-equilibrium physics, not all assumptions are created equal.
Detecting Gluons Inside Pions: 5 Questions With NC State Physicists Patrick Barry and Chueng Ji
Researchers from NC State University have determined the probability of finding a gluon inside the pion. The Abstract talks with them about what this finding means for our understanding of how the universe works.
Approach Paves Way for New Generation of Antimicrobial Materials
Researchers have successfully developed materials with the ability to render bacteria and viruses inactive using only ambient oxygen and visible-wavelength light. The new approach opens the door to a range of new products aimed at reducing the transmission of drug-resistant pathogens.
In this October episode of Audio Abstract we focus - zombie-like - on the brain!
New Research Aims to Help Catch Child Killers

Math in Motion
Mathematician Tye Lidman and dancer Michelle Pearson are working together to make two disciplines that people find difficult - math and dance - accessible to a broader audience.
Rapid Cloud Clearing Phenomenon Could Provide Another Piece of Climate Puzzle
Rapid and dramatic clearing of low cloud cover off the southwest coast of Africa could help climatologists understand how clouds affect Earth’s heating and cooling.
Following the Path: Making Huge Calculations Predictable
New approach narrows down huge calculations – like those involved in quantum physics – by focusing on a single, predictive parameter.
