Protein fishing in America: The movie

...ation."Lu's single-molecule spectroscopy technique gathers and analyzes photons emitted as single proteins interact. This raw data may not produce what we would think of as a motion picture, but for Lu it is just as good. It enables him to construct--in true sequence and in real time--the position and contin...

Spring through fall, cities are greener longer than neighboring rural regions

...instrument, aboard NASA satellites Terra and Aqua, gathers data on Earth's entire surface every one to two days. The team used "nighttime lights" data and MODIS data to determine the size of the urban areas studied. To determine the radiating effect of urban heat islands on vegetation in surrounding regions...

Story tips from the Department of Energys Oak Ridge National Laboratory, February 2004

...y. The new models help explain why the white dwarf gathers the hydrogen from its companion instead of blowing off the material as it arrives. White-dwarf supernovae interest researchers because they are believed to be the stellar factories of the heavy elements such as iron, nickel and cobalt. They also have...

Nutrient-poor oceans generate their food 'hot spots'

...ments generated by the passage of equatorial waves gathers and accumulates in restricted locations what little organic matter there is. What is initially scattered wide over the ocean surface is concentrated into oases of nutrients for fish. The results provide possible clues to the question of survival of m...

Scientists devise new 'gene silencing' strategy: Genome, biomedical research expected to flourish

...small interfering or siRNAs. A complex of proteins gathers up these RNA scraps and uses their code as a guide to search out and destroy any RNAs in the cell with a matching sequence, such as messenger RNA. Because messenger RNA serves as a template for the production of the proteins that carry out gene funct...

This learning provides the camera with several useful abilities including discrimination between a man or an automobile, for example, depending on whether its been programmed to look at men, or at automobiles, explains ONR Prog...

Supercomputer paints electric landscape of cellular structures

...ass the results along to a "master processor" that gathers and processes the data. Blue Horizon completed the calculations for the equation relating to the microtubule in less than an hour using 686 processors available out of 1,152. The researchers estimated that the old method would have required at least ...
