Study exposes silenced sites within ‘jumping genes’ that could one day drive development of environmentally-resistant crops.
Research into superfood genomes could lead to heat-tolerant seaweed strains, combating the threat of climate change.
Regions of DNA that give rise to non-coding RNA are required for proper development of plant reproductive organs.
Emergency signs, clock dials, and safety-way guides require glow-in-the-dark materials. Professor Ryota Kabe is looking at how these materials can be created efficiently and economically.
Researchers combine experiments and theory to determine how curved edges affect the wrinkling of ultra-thin materials.
A researcher explores the mind and its implications for human society.
Researchers strive to better understand the flow of materials that have both liquid-like and solid-like states, such as toothpaste, mayonnaise, and ketchup.
An OIST researcher is involved in a multi-disciplinary, international collaboration to uncover the molecular interaction mechanisms between the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its host.
