Clean and green: a moss that removes lead (Pb) from water


Scientists show that the moss Funaria hygrometrica can remove harmful lead from water when in the protonema stage of development.

Leaky plants bad for drought resistance


The KAI2 receptor for compounds found in smoke helps plants retain water and survive during drought.

What’s that smell? The advantage of sniffing


Rhythmic sniffing boosts phase-coded neuronal signals in the mouse olfactory bulb that allow odors to be identified.

Solar cells you can put in the wash


Scientists have developed ultra-thin photovoltaic solar cells that can be incorporated into fabric and even washed.

A gut-wrenching defense against parasitic worms


Mast cells in the gut help fight off parasitic worms in the early stages of infection.

Science communication symposium


Friday I participated in a small symposium that focused on science communication (for institutions in Japan). We discussed using social media as a means to self-publish wow! and amazing! research findings. Here are some of my thoughts about how useful this plays out in Japan.
