Washington University in St. Louis leads group studying aging process

... this chemical environment," said Pakrasi. "We're approaching this in a systematic way, using global genome-based information on all three organisms. We've recruited colleagues outside our area to assist in tackling the project. This kind of interdisciplinary approach is exemplary of the 'New Biology.'" Both ...

Anti-bacterial additive found in Maryland streams

...nt disinfectant for almost half a century at rates approaching 1 million pounds per year and still have essentially no idea of what exactly happens to the compound after we flush it down the drain. Further studies are needed to determine the effect of triclocarban on aquatic life and potential pathways of unwant...

Ecologist calls for creation of an international panel to assess human behavior

..., on Aug. 2. The goal of MAHB will be to avoid the approaching collision between humanity and its life-support systems, he noted. ''For the first time in human history, global civilization is threatened with collapse,'' said Ehrlich, the Bing Professor of Population Studies at Stanford. ''The world therefore nee...

Surprising 'ultra-conserved' regions discovered in human genome

... part of the genome having a level of conservation approaching that of these ultra-conserved elements is the DNA that codes for ribosomes and their actions in the cells. Ribosomes are complex molecular machines made of RNA and proteins. They translate the genetic code to carry out protein synthesis in all cells....

...ries. 3. All key stakeholders must have a voice in approaching these problems in a cooperative and respectful political environment, mindful of international commitments and legal obligations concerning human rights, poverty reduction, and the environment. Free market, profit-driven solutions alone will not be s...

Stanford study questions identity of alleged Romanov bones

...win said. ''I was left kind of befuddled.'' Before approaching Knight, Litwin discussed his ideas with a Russian history expert at the Hoover Institution at Stanford, who agreed that the Romanov verdict was worth re-examining. Months later, Knight went to New York to procure a small wooden case containing a fing...

New genomics tool boosts diabetes research

...gs go beyond diabetes and offer a whole new way of approaching research on many diseases, Young adds. "There are many human diseases associated with mutations in transcription factors, including cancer, hypertension and immunological and neurological disorders. Discovering how transcription factors regulate gene...

New Seascape initiative stretches from Costa Rica to Ecuador and protects key marine habitats

...cial fish populations have either collapsed or are approaching collapse. Despite these trends, marine conservation lags far behind terrestrial initiatives. While about 12 percent of the Earth's surface is currently protected, less than 1 percent of the ocean enjoys some form of protection. One of the marine spec...

University of Delaware lays keel for new research vessel

...ve proposition" but that UD's current ship is fast approaching its retirement age and "not having a research vessel at our College of Marine Studies would seem about as logical as a race car driver without a car. "At a time when the importance of marine science is growing nationally," Roselle said, "I believe th...

NHGRI selects sequencing centers

...c diseases and developing pharmaceuticals, is also approaching deep draft coverage. This summer, the centers also began initial sequence production for creating a reference version of the genome of the rhesus macaque, which is a monkey that is widely used in studies of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infectio...

Grant of powerful computer to Rutgers-Newark will increase understanding of brain activity

...digesting this quantity of information at anything approaching this speed. And, he adds, every byte is needed. "If we were to scan someone's brain each second during the 10 seconds it took that person to walk over to a chair and sit down, we would end up with millions of variables," Hanson said. To monitor a hum...

Prescribed burns can threaten pine Savannah amphibians

... per pond by about half. "A prescribed burn cycle approaching five years should balance the conflicting needs of amphibians and longleaf pines without placing the entire community in danger of catastrophic fire," say Jamie Schurbon and John Fauth in the October issue of Conservation Biology. Schurbon and Fauth ...

Measles on the rise as vaccinations fall in the UK, Science study reports

...on in Egham, Surrey in the United Kingdom. "We are approaching the danger zone where measles could once again become an endemic disease in the United Kingdom. We are not yet there, but it may be going that way," said Jansen. "We are reporting a correlation between the drop in vaccinations and the increasing size...

Scientists with Hawaii ocean mixing experiment

... and doesn't get dissipated at the ridge. So we're approaching closure of this phenomenon," said Rudnick. "But until we have a firmer understanding of this process--until we get a better handle on mixing--climate models will be of limited use." In addition to Rudnick, coauthors of the study include Joseph P. Mar...

Monogamous animals may be more likely to die out

...rs or small groups, they are less likely to detect approaching hunters. "It may just be that it's a lot easier to sneak up on one or two animals than it is 20," says Brashares. This work suggests that managers should target conservation efforts and monitoring on species that are monogamous or live in small grou...

Researchers gather at Smith College for science 'boot camps'

... chip -- technology, an important new strategy for approaching problems in molecular biology. When he started the program, Williams says he thought it might be useful for only a few years. Now, he can't imagine discontinuing it and, despite minimal advertising, struggles to accommodate a long waiting list of app...

Computational method identifies genes that regulate cell's machinery

... and technological breakthroughs offer the hope of approaching this problem from a global perspective. The recently completed genome sequencing project enabled the development of microarray assays that measure the expression levels of thousands of genes in one experiment. These essentially give the scientists a ...

Protein mimetics could lead to more successful coronary bypasses

...afety in humans can be tested. "I'm interested in approaching science from a bedside to bench and back to bedside approach," said Brophy, who is also a vascular surgeon. "We hope to be very applied in terms of looking at clinically relevant problems for which there's an unmet need, then developing experimental ...

New research tool allows perimenopausal women to assess their ovulation status

...use the test. Women who are irregular tend to be approaching menopause and if not planning for children, have the greatest need in estimating when ovulation occurs. A new research effort has developed an algorithm -- a logical sequence of steps for solving a problem that can be translated into a computer progr...

Listen up! Infrasound is talking

... about funneling tornadoes, erupting volcanoes and approaching objects from space. The impact of this current "Infrasound Renaissance" will continue to grow as more researchers discover how these inaudible sound waves can benefit their research. Large atmospheric explosions, natural and anthropogenic, generate i...
