Stanford researchers have applied chatbot technology to self-paced learning and significantly improved student recall and retention over flashcard-based learning.
Scientists at Stanford have built a detailed timeline of the gene activity leading up to meiosis in corn, a finding with potential implications for plant breeding as well as sexually reproductive organisms more broadly.
An international team of researchers used an X-ray laser at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to create the first detailed maps of two melatonin receptors that tell our bodies when to go to sleep or wake up, and guide other biological processes
A study by Stanford researchers employed state-of-the-art visualization techniques to reveal how Helicobacter pylori, a potentially pathogenic bacterial species that infects half the people on Earth, establishes its niche in the stomach.
Adults who played Pokémon videogames extensively as children have a brain region that responds preferentially to images of Pikachu and other characters from the series.
The energy produced over the lifetime of typical rooftop solar panels more than makes up for the energy it takes to make, mount and then eventually recycle them. But adding a home battery usually lowers those dividends, according to new research from Stanford University.
Stanford University researchers created a new model based on remote sensing data could help zero in on where water managers can replenish aquifers by flooding fields.
Researchers at Stanford and the National Centre for Biological Sciences at India’s Tata Institute of Fundamental Research have developed a method for extracting genetic clues quickly and cheaply from degraded and left-behind materials, such as feces, skin or saliva, and from food products suspected of containing endangered animals.
Scientists from Johns Hopkins, Stanford University, and other U.S. institutions has found no long-lasting, major differences between the epigenomes of astronaut Scott Kelly, who spent a year in space aboard the International Space Station, and his twin brother, Mark, who remained on Earth.
A Stanford-led study has shown some viruses sequester antibiotics in the lungs of CF patients, possibly helping drug-resistant bacterial infections develop in the face of large antibiotic doses.
