Rutgers helping Finns explore arctic microbes

...W BRUNSWICK/PISCATAWAY, N.J. A Finnish consortium aided by Rutgers has launched an $800,000, three-year project to mine the diverse, sturdy bacterial strains found in Finland's arctic region. Microbiologists suspect arctic Finland, a cold land of boreal forests and stark mountain tundra with long, dark w...

New clues to how RNA exits the nucleus
