The finding opens new avenues to short-distance optical fibers using sustainable...

Hexbyte Glen Cove Genome-editing tool TALEN outperforms CRISPR-Cas9 in tightly packed DNA

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers used single-molecule imaging to compare the genome-editing tools CRISPR-Cas9 and TALEN. Their experiments revealed that TALEN is up to five times more efficient than CRISPR-Cas9 in parts of the genome, called heterochromatin, that are densely packed. Fragile X syndrome, sickle cell anemia, beta-thalassemia and other diseases are the result...

Hexbyte Glen Cove Study examines how clean air act affects municipal bond market

Credit: Unsplash/CC0 Public Domain Research has studied the effects of climate risk on financial markets, but few studies have addressed the effect of environmental policy on those markets. A new study examined whether federal policy aimed at mitigating local air pollution—specifically, the Clean Air Act—affected the municipal bond market from 2005 to 2019. The...
