Half the planet should be set aside for wildlife – to save ourselves

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - Thu, 2018-09-13 21:00
If we want to avoid extinctions and preserve the ecosystems all life depends on, half of the Earth’s land and oceans should be protected by 2050, say biologists

Bandages laser-bonded to your skin may fix wounds better than stitches

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - Thu, 2018-09-13 18:30
Most flesh wounds are repaired with sutures, but they cause extra damage to the skin. A bandage made of silk and gold, sealed with laser light, could solve that

Just one tiny piece of plastic may be enough to kill a baby turtle

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - Thu, 2018-09-13 16:00
Post-mortems show that some sea turtles die from eating just one fragment of plastic – and it’s post-hatchlings that seem to be particularly vulnerable
