New Theory about the Origin of Life Concludes It’s Magic!

Another new theory about how life could have evolved from simple molecules has now been added to the existing pile of theories.

Photosynthesis: Darwin’s Great Mystery Is Still a Mystery

Darwin’s Great Mystery, Photosynthesis, Is Still a Mystery by Jerry Bergman, PhD The origin of photosynthesis has always been a profound problem for evolution. A 2019 study by one of the leading researchers in this area, Tanai Cardona, from the Department of Life Sciences at Imperial College London, has confirmed the fact that after decades […]

More Reasons to Imitate Biology

Recent articles about Biomimetics show that the field is still going strong.

Molecular Machines Show Same Design Principles as Big Machines

Life needs molecular machines before natural selection can even be considered as a possible Darwinian explanation for them.

More Cool Cell Tricks Discovered

Watching molecular machines at work in living cells should be as fascinating as watching a city through a magnifying glass.

Trends in Biomimetics: Copying Irreducible Complexity

Not everything in nature can be copied effectively for human engineering. Why? Nature is sometimes too good.

Pinpoint Navigation and Propulsion in a Seemingly Random Soup

Non-coding sequences of DNA, sometimes considered genetic junk, may actually function to help navigate proteins to their target genes.

Biological Designs Worth Imitating

If these designs are so good that intelligent minds want to mimic them, who can believe they emerged by chance?

Finding More Gifts in the Cellular Stocking

Improving techniques are allowing biochemists to find surprising new things in cells. Here are some recent examples.

What's New in Biomimetics?

It's hard to keep up with the numerous advancements in science coming from inspiration provided by natural design.

Animals Come Pre-Equipped With Machinery

Guidance systems, compasses, switchboards, motors, robotic machines: we're talking about systems inside animals—and you.

Plants Are Clever

They may be stuck in the ground, but plants know how to get what they need. How do creation and evolution explain this?

Cell Biologists Use Machine Language

This is a golden age of discovery about molecular machines, but the metaphor may be moving from machinery to information processing.

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.
