Unlocking the Secrets of Metal-Insulator Transitions

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Using an x-ray technique available at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II), scientists found that the metal-insulator transition in the correlated material magnetite is a two-step process. The researchers from the University of California Davis published their paper in the journal Physical Review Letters.

Rainforest destruction from gold mining hits all-time high in Peru

Wake Forest University

Small-scale gold mining has destroyed more than 170,000 acres of primary rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon in the past five years, according to a new analysis by scientists at Wake Forest University’s Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA). That’s an area larger than San Francisco and 30 percent more than previously reported.

Broad genome analysis shows yeasts evolving by subtraction

University of Wisconsin-Madison

An unprecedented comparison of hundreds of species of yeasts has helped geneticists brew up an expansive picture of their evolution over the last hundreds of millions of years, including an analysis of the way they evolved individual appetites for particular food sources that may be a boon to biofuels research.

Can’t Sleep? Fruit Flies and Energy Drinks Offer New Clues

Florida Atlantic University

Like humans, fruit flies are active during the day, sleep at night and have similar sleep characteristics. A study has discovered a new gene and uncovered a mechanism that modulates sleep by controlling the movement of taurine – a common ingredient found in many energy drinks like Red Bull™ – into neuron cells of the fly brain. Taurine also is abundant in the human brain and is consistently elevated in blood and urine of sleep-deprived people.
