Graphene ‘sandwich’ improves imaging of biomolecules

By sandwiching a biological molecule between sheets of graphene, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have obtained atomic-level images of the molecule in its natural watery environment.

Intact biomolecules found in 350-million-year-old fossils

Scientists have for the first time discovered complex organic molecules that have survived fossilization, in the form of 350-million-year-old sea creatures found in Ohio, Indiana and Iowa.
