Many will be overjoyed that team of European researchers is at last claiming to have discovered not just the root cause of grey hair, but also potentially a treatment for their condition.
Plant expert Kyle Taylor, technical wizard Antony Evans, and synthetic biologist Omri Amirav-Drory lead the project - their approach entailing the creation of bioluminescent plants that glow brighter due to more complex DNA sequencing
Rurther investigations revealed some invertebrates to have a special kind of molecule in their hard outer coverings - that when exposed to electrons or ionized gas form a protective layer.
They found that it is sensitive enough to touch to make it viable for use in prosthetics, as well as being suitable for overlaying electronic devices or display screens.
Researchers could now, it seems, be only six months from producing artificial meat from human stem cells

The report just published by the Environmental Working Group states that the number of meat products contaminated with superbugs is rising.
They used a toxin tested dubbed alpha-haemolysin (from staphylococcus bacteria) in their testing. This compound damages cells by weakening the molecular bonds in cell walls, killing off the cells.
This means living cells within the bandage deliver, in a defined pattern, growth factors to damaged tissues, helping them to repair themselves much more quickly
The uniqueness of these compounds had never before been shown, and this new study suggests that testing them could be as useful to medical diagnosis as urine or blood sampling
This miniature electronic device can be implanted under the skin, and is able to not only detect up to five proteins and organic acids simultaneously, but also wirelessly transmit the results to the computer of the doctor in questio.
Especially where baby foods are concerned, many of the infant foods tending to be created using organic brown rice syrup have high levels of arsenic, a new study has found.
Already patented in the USA, this ground-breaking vaccine makes the body resistant to heroin, so smoking or injecting it would no longer give pleasure to users.
This aptly named Lazarus project saw researchers inserting extinct amphibian genetic material into the donor eggs of a species of living frog.
Until now, these pressure shifts magnitudes, and their influence on gold formation was an unknown quantity - but now two scientists - .Dr. Dion Weatherley and Professor Richard Henley - have developed a mathematical model to explain the process
The latest research work seems to prove that this one anti-ageing enzyme - occuring naturally in the body - has the potential to prevent age-related diseases and extend life-spans
This is totally unlike other HIV medications, which focus only on preventing reproduction instead of killing it outright, to prevent infection from the start.
Described in Icelandic saga as magical gems, in that, when held up to the heavens, would show the position of the sun, even at night - any such navigational aid a possible clue to the Vikings’ reputation as remarkable seafarers,
The May 2012 collected material was infested with a bacteria bearing no resemblance to existing types, according to Saint Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics geneticist Sergei Bulat
Amazingly, it seems that if the whole community elected to eat no more than one rasher of bacon, one small sausage or a thin slice of ham each, some 3% of all premature deaths could be avoided, though a small amount of red meat also seems to benefit health, because it contains impor...
Astoundingly enough, the trio found that - as long as the silk produced by Darwin’s bark spider from Madagascar were employed - a single spider web could indeed stop the train dead.
Published in Cell Reports, this new study represents a dramatic and major discovery - offering new hope for targeted treatments of age-related degenerative diseases, heart disease, Alzheimer's and arthritis among them.
From these truly ancient fruit and seeds a Russian scientific team have miraculously managed to resurrect an ice-age plant so well that the species - Silene stenophylla - has become the oldest plant ever to be regenerated.
The study found that people prefer their own body odour, naturally gravitating to those scents that most closely match and enhance their own unique smell.
A great deal depends upon how the differing types of canine enter the world, according to Kathryn Lord, University of Massachusetts evolutionary biologist.
