Good Biology Without Natural Selection

Excellent biological research that produces understanding and application can ignore natural selection completely.

Big Science Loves ID – Sometimes

Despite institutional rejection of intelligent design, researchers are attracted to ID when it can make money, make them famous, or advance understanding of nature.

Inspiring Life Motivates Designers

Here's the latest collection of bio-inspired designs brought to you by plants, animals, and cells.

Let's Get [Thankful for the] Physical

Wonders of the human body continue to pour forth from scientific research, providing more reasons to give thanks.

Body Wonders at the Cellular Level

If we kept track of all the nano-scopic processes that keep us alive, we would be giga-astonished.

Life Worth Imitating

The living treasure chest of biological designs opens wider each week, inspiring human engineers to improve human health and productivity.

Cool Tools in your Cellular Toolkit

Biochemists can't help using familiar tools to describe what they are finding in living cells.

More Reasons to Appreciate Your Body

There's more going on under your skin than you possibly realize.

Thank Your Cilia

Throughout your body, cilia (protrusions on cells, singular cilium) are monitoring the environment and sweeping your passages clean.

Adventures in Biomimetics

The imitation of nature in engineering has become one of the hottest trends in science. Almost every week, amazing technologies are being advanced the easy way – by observing how living things do it. We all stand to benefit from the design-based science of biomimetics. Here are a few recent examples.

Cell Operations Amaze, Inspire

A student's view of a cell under a light microscope is misleading.  It reveals only a tiny fraction of what is really going on.  Within that package of life, invisible to the student's gaze, complex machines work together in cellular factories.  Signals pass back and forth in complex networks.  Libraries of code are transcribed and […]
