Transgenic Rice Plants Resist Insects, Drought And Salt Damage

...tic engineers put them and not escape to produce a super weed, Wu said, because rice is a self-pollinating plant and few other plants can cross-pollinate with it. The Rockefeller Foundation's Toenniessen observed that undernourishment already is a problem in most rice-dependent countries of Asia. "Popula...

China now leads world in sulfur emissions, study shows

...Soviet Union and China have been the world's major super powers over the past 50 years and they easily lead the world in sulfur production, accounting for 53 percent of global sulfur emissions during the latter part of the study. The European community was next, followed by Japan. Husar's time frame was ...

Researchers find volcanoes are bad for your health...long after they finish erupting

...was characterised by pyroclastic flows (a cloud of super heated matter) formed by a lava dome collapse within the volcano. This generates between three and fours times as much finer ash than volcanoes that have more rapid and explosive eruptions. The problem is made even worse in volcanoes such as the Mont...

Tiny sampling device promises big results for detection and analysis of chemicals

Antarctic sea urchin shows amazing energy-efficiency in nature's deep freeze

...ic sea urchin demonstrates a remarkable economy, a super energy-efficiency in its metabolism. Despite frigid water temperatures and little available food, its babies can synthesize proteins more efficiently than any other organism recorded to date. The scientists findings are reported in the March 9 editio...

Proteins are vastly more complicated than previously realized

...her proteins and hold the mass together a sort of super glue for cells. It is the movement of these fibers and the resulting pull and push on the cells attached to them, that transmits force to the cells. Vogel and colleagues ask these questions: What does force do to the fiber? How is force transmitted ...

Resistance training complements aerobic exercise for women

Sedentary people would see even a greater benefit at first, but they should always check with their physician before starting an exercise program."...

ORNL heads effort to build better supercomputer centers

...h powerful tools, but operating them can also be a super hassle, says an Oak Ridge National Laboratory researcher who heads a team working to fix the problem. Through a $15 million five-year project, ORNL and a team from universities and other Department of Energy laboratories will create the Scalable Syst...

New application of imaging technique can change how scientists look at proteins

...ibronectin, a large protein that acts as a sort of super glue to hold cells together. The protein weaves itself into "sticky" attachment sites on cell surfaces and forms thread-like fibrils to connect the cells to one another. Fibronectin plays important roles in embryo development, wound healing and oth...
