Gene duplication allowed pigs to have more babies

...e genomes being sequenced, researchers are keen to analyse the functions of the genes they contain and the proteins these genes encode. Yet, according to researchers writing in BMC Biology, to fully understand any genome, researchers must use palaeontology, geology and chemistry to help them discover the rea...

ESA consults European science community on candidate Earth Explorer missions

This has largely changed with the work of Wolfgang Baumeister and his co-workers who have developed a technique known as cryoelectron tomography. This method also uses the electron microscope but analyses objects in a rapidly frozen s...

Chips that analyse cancer genes

...ays, also known as 'chips', have been developed to analyse types of cancer. Genetic material, DNA and RNA, is removed from the tumour and labelled. "This tissue sample is placed on the chip, which is a plastic device with a very small glass chamber on it, barely visible to the naked eye," Dr Martin Fey, fro...

'Glowing' technique could detect river pollution

New technology used to analyse dissolved organic matter in river water could also help scientists detect and monitor pollution, according to new research by the University of Newcastle, UK (1). Dissolved organic matter is found in all river water, and can come from botha natural ...
