Team jams bacteria 'talk' to boost bio-product yields

...m-sensing signals turn bacterial genes on and off, deciphering this language will enable us to commandeer it for our own purposes, like controlling protein and metabolic engineering, rewiring cells, you might say, to produce important polymers or try to figure out the coordination of the enzymatic pathways. This...

Scientists with Hawaii ocean mixing experiment

...y of California, San Diego, are closing the gap in deciphering one of the most puzzling aspects of the world's oceans. "Ocean mixing," the complex motions of seawater that span large-scale phenomena down to tiny, centimeter-sized turbulent motion, serves a key role in redistributing heat throughout the oceans. A...

Genome of first fungal pathogen unveiled

...f inheritance -- will further simplify the task of deciphering genes and their functions, he added. The genomes of other important fungal pathogens can include as many as 200 million base pairs, more than 20 times that of the Ashbya genome. In comparison, the genetic blueprints contained in each human cell run t...

'Male-targeting' bacterium's genome is deciphered

...biology and evolution of these amazing bacteria by deciphering and analyzing the genome of a model Wolbachia strain, Wolbachia pipientis wMel, which infects the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, itself a model for studies of animal biology. The new study, which appears in the March 2004 issue of PloS Biology, p...

Protein folding on a chip

...tion allows the supercomputer to break the task of deciphering the three-dimensional arrangement of a protein's atoms -- 100,000 in a typical protein -- into smaller chunks of 10 atoms per processor. Working together, the chips effectively cut the computing time needed to solve a protein's structure by a factor ...
