The Helix, of DNA Fame, May Have Arisen with Startling Ease

Georgia Institute of Technology

Here's a science enigma: Try to explain where the neat, even DNA/RNA helix came from. Ha! Easy one! It probably spun around itself long before first life evolved like it did in this lab. In fact, the twist could have helped select the components of RNA, not the other way around.

Birth of Massive Black Holes in the Early Universe Revealed

Georgia Institute of Technology

An international research team has shown that when galaxies assemble extremely rapidly -- and sometimes violently -- that can lead to the formation of very massive black holes. In these rare galaxies, normal star formation is disrupted and black hole formation takes over.

When Coral Species Vanish, Their Absence Can Imperil Surviving Corals

Georgia Institute of Technology

As coral species die off, they may be leaving a death spiral in their wake: Their absence could be sapping life from the corals that survive. In a new study, when isolated from other species, corals got weak, died off or grew in fragile structures. The study shows it is possible to quantify positive effects of coral biodiversity and negative effects of its absence.

Long-Acting Contraceptive Designed to be Self-Administered Via Microneedle Patch

Georgia Institute of Technology

A new long-acting contraceptive designed to be self-administered by women may provide a new family planning option, particularly in developing nations where access to healthcare can be limited, a recent study suggests. The contraceptive would be delivered using microneedle skin patch technology originally developed for the painless administration of vaccines.
