Remains of microorganisms at least 3,770 million years old have been discovered by an international team of scientists including a researcher from The University of Western Australia, providing direct evidence of one of the oldest life forms on Earth.
A study led by researchers at The University of Western Australia has found that people who supported Donald Trump were more likely to believe information if they were told President Trump said it, and if it was later proved to be false, that didn’t affect their intention to vote for him.
Scientists from The University of Western Australia have identified a tiny mutation in plants that can influence how well a plant recovers from stressful conditions, and ultimately impact a plant’s survival.
A study by marine biologists at The University of Western Australia has found that fishing by Indonesian shark hunters may have resulted in changes to fish communities on a major reef off Western Australia’s North-West coast.
An international collaboration led by scientists from The University of Western Australia has uncovered the three-dimensional molecular structure of a protein, called EptA, which is responsible for multi-drug resistance in many disease-causing bacteria.
UWA’s award winning invention, a miniaturised optical imaging probe known as the microscope-in-a-needle, has been licensed to Miniprobes Pty Ltd. so it can be developed and commercialised for use by surgeons.
An international team of researchers has developed a new way of visualizing the distribution of cholesterol in cells and tissues. Their studies, which provide unique insights into the movement of cholesterol into and out of cells, could eventually lead to new therapies for cardiovascular disease.
Energy is an all-important currency for plants, and scientists from The University of Western Australia have now calculated the cost of one of their biggest expenses. The knowledge could be a key to creating more energy efficient crops.
