Study reveals precarious employment on the rise long before COVID-19
04/02/2021 - Researchers have used a new approach to measure precarious, or low-quality, employment in the United States. And, according to those findings, precarious employment has increased 9 percent between...
Detecting fake news designed to manipulate stock markets
04/02/2021 - Social media is increasingly used to spread fake news. The same problem can be found on the capital market - criminals spread fake news about companies in order to manipulate share prices....
Gene-editing 'scissor' tool may also be a 'dimmer switch'
04/02/2021 - In a series of experiments with laboratory-cultured bacteria, scientists have found evidence that there is a second role for the widely used gene-cutting system CRISPR-Cas9 -- as a genetic dimmer...
Cannabis use both helps and hurts entrepreneurial creativity
04/02/2021 - When entrepreneurs dream up ideas for new businesses, cannabis use might help, and hinder, their creativity, according to a new study.
Which beverages burst with umami potential?
04/02/2021 - In a new and first of its kind study, researchers study fermented beverages to find the one with the most umami flavor. Which one wins -- champagne, beer, wine or sake?

04/02/2021 - Millions of patients suffering from neurological and mental disorders such as depression, addiction, and chronic pain are treatment-resistant. New research paves the way for a promising alternative:...
'Achilles' heel' of cancer cells revealed
04/02/2021 - A new study shows, for the first time, how an abnormal number of chromosomes (aneuploidy) -- a unique characteristic of cancer cells that researchers have known about for decades -- could become a...
Genetic changes in tumors could help predict if patients will respond to immunotherapy
04/02/2021 - Researchers have identified genetic changes in tumors which could be used to predict if immunotherapy drugs would be effective in individual patients.
Researchers simplify the study of gene-environment interactions
04/02/2021 - Researchers have developed a new computational method for studying genetic and environmental interactions and how they influence disease risk.
Study defines small-cell lung cancer subtypes and distinct therapeutic vulnerabilities for each type
04/02/2021 - Researchers have developed the first comprehensive framework to classify small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) into four unique subtypes, based on gene expression, and have identified potential therapeutic...
