The artificial cell system developed at the Weizmann Institute can advance our understanding of gene expression.
The development of a new generation of drugs which attenuate the lethal effects of a whole range of viral and bacterial infections may benefit people suffering from less-researched diseases such as Ebola.
Is the Higgs boson what had been expected, as physicists currently estimate, or could it lead to a new chapter in modern physics?
If we want proof of how extreme weather conditions can effect political change, Prof. Ronnie Ellenblum says we just need to look to the Mediterranean Basin a thousand or so years ago.
A group of 30 scientists, led by a biologist from Israel's Weizmann Institute, spend a month adrift in the north Atlantic Ocean in hopes of unlocking the ecological secrets hidden in simple, slimy sea algae.
