Scientists have found microchromosomes are the origin of all vertebrate genomes, meaning the human genome is less 'normal' than we thought.

Structure of a liposome

A discovery of how to build little blocks out of DNA and get them to stick to lipids has implications for biosensing and mRNA vaccines.

Matthew Baker

A UNSW Sydney researcher has received a prestigious international grant to study the origins of movement in bacteria and its application to present-day biology.

Atacama desert

How ancient microbes survived in a world without oxygen has been a mystery. Scientists discovered a living microbial mat that uses arsenic instead of oxygen for photosynthesis and respiration.
