The burgeoning business of DNA analysis includes a Denver company that gives couples a glimpse of what they're baby might look like.
They are flexible and strong, and like a human muscle can throw a ball, lift heavy groceries and delicately grasp a raspberry.
Artificial muscles developed at the University of Colorado are delicate enough to move a raspberry, strong enough to lift a gallon of water, and flexible enough to throw a ball. Researchers hope that when incorporated into a prosthetic, they could closely mimic the actions of human muscles.
Flood Waters Are Filled With Lots Of Stuff, Antibiotics Included. How Does That Impact Antibiotic Resistance?
CSU researchers studied antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the Cache La Poudre watershed for 10 years before the 2013 floods, then went back to see how the bacteria were impacted.
Researchers at Colorado State University have been experimenting with a material that kills bacteria before it becomes more powerful and deadly.
The two have found a plant-based compound that extends the lifespan of male mice. Now they want to figure out how to do the same with female mice. Eventually, they hope to help humans live healthier lives into old age.
The engineered material, about the thickness of aluminum foil, can cool an object by up to 25 degrees. And since it's so thin, it could one day be mass produced in giant rolls.
