Cell division study aids cancer drug search
...e cell cycle is controlled in nature. Failures or aberrations
in the control of the cell cycle lie behind cancer and a number of other diseases. The race is on to develop custom-made drugs to compensate for the failures in the natural control mechanisms. Says Professor La Thangue: "The research teams working on...
Coming Extinction Of One Of UK's Most Minuscule Plants Yields Information On Climate Change
...plant the researchers will be able to determine if aberrations
in weather are becoming part of a longer term pattern. If climate change is occurring and these weather patterns become more long term it seems likely that the Iceland Purslane could become extinct in Britain. The loss of such an insignificant lit...
