( RIKEN ) Researchers from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan have uncovered the first evidence of an unusual quantum phenomenon — the integer quantum Hall effect — in a new type of film, called a 3-D topological insulator. This discovery could help move science forward toward the goal of dissipationless electronics — electronic devices that can operate without producing …

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Researchers from Mayo Clinic have recently discovered a new type of cancer. When two perfectly harmless genes, PAX3 and MAML3, abnormally combine during recurring chromosomal mismatch, they can turn dangerous. As the two genes combine, they become a chimera, which is a gene that is made up of half of each
