Tiny cancer signals of the glycoprotein sort evade detection, but they'll have a hard time dodging the new "chemical octopus."
Image shows a rendered confocal laser scanning micrograph of a mixed species bacterial biofilm observed in a chronic wound model of infection. Staphylococcus aureus (yellow) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (purple), organize themselves in small, dense clusters of cells called aggregates.

Study shows how bacteria behave differently in humans versus the lab.
To understand their strategies for working effectively without clogging traffic jams, researchers studied how fire ants dug tunnels in glass particles that simulated soil. (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
A new study shows that ants have a lot to teach robots about working in confined spaces.

A previously overlooked predator could be increasing the pressure on endangered coral reefs.
Screen capture shows a chemical processing plant in which critical parameters are rising due to false process data and control commands injected by an attacker. 
A control system simulator for a chemical processing plant could help train operators on security measures.

A new simulation may help astronomers watch for signals indicating the formation of black holes in early galaxies.

Hydrogel delivered stem cells called muscle satellite cells integrate to form new muscle strands, in green, along with existing muscle tissue, in red. Yellow strands may descend from existing muscle cells and from delivered MuSCs.
Elderly accident victims and Duchene muscular dystrophy sufferers could someday benefit from this stem cell hydrogel successfully tested in mice.
AbGradCon 2018 showcases Georgia Tech’s leadership in astrobiology research and education.

Researchers have now learned to control the chaotic structure that results from microfluidic jets..
Georgia Tech researchers Eric Shen and Anna Osterholm demonstrate how films of electrochromic polymers can be applied to large surfaces. (Credit: Rob Felt)
Researchers have created a broad color palette of electrochromic polymers, materials that can be used for sunglasses, window tinting and other applications that rely on electrical current to produce color changes.
