YouTube videos help researchers analyse dog bites

Researchers at the University of Liverpool have turned to the popular video-sharing site YouTube to study the complex issue of dog bites. Preventing dog bites is an increasingly important public health and political issue with implications for both human and animal health and welfare. However, it remains difficult for researchers to understand the circumstances leading up to dog bites, with most studies relying on evidence collected after bi...

Illuminating the inner 'machines' of bacteria

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have tracked how microscopic organisms called cyanobacteria make use of internal protein 'machines' to boost their ability to convert carbon dioxide into sugar during photosynthesis. With global food and energy security one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century, the new findings could help inform the design and engineering of new nanotechnologies to improve crop yields and biomass production.

Drone saves endangered chimpanzees

With the numbers of chimpanzees significantly decreasing in the last 20 to 30 years, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has classed them as endangered. To save them, ICUN is monitoring areas in which they live by using drones. In a recent study in Gabon, Africa, conducted by IUCN and Liverpool John Moores University, drones fitted with a standard camera were able to detect chimpanzee nests, saving conservation researchers h...
