China's rapid socioeconomic growth continues to tax national water resources. The researchers report in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that reducing agricultural production in these provinces and importing food commodities from other provinces or nations instead could help China conserve more water.
Princeton and Columbia universities have proposed a method that could allow scientists to customize and grow highly purified crystals, known as photonic crystals, with relative ease.
In the first evidence that natural selection favors an individual's infection tolerance, researchers from Princeton University and the University of Edinburgh have found that an animal's ability to endure an internal parasite strongly influences its reproductive success.
Global use of antibiotics is surging, according to Princeton University researchers who have conducted a broad assessment of antibiotic consumption around the world.
A study led by Princeton University researchers has revealed a gene which is implicated in promoting the spread of breast cancer tumors. In collaboration with the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (Rutgers-CINJ), researchers hope to someday have a drug that could improve, cure or control breast cancer by targeting the particular pathways that are associated with metastasis and the progression of disease.
Princeton University researchers merged two powerful areas of research to enable an unprecedented chemical reaction that neither could broadly achieve on its own. The resulting bond formation could provide an excellent shortcut for chemists as they construct and test thousands of molecules to find new drugs.
