Research Into Cockroach Behavior Could Lead To Better Baits

...th sprays, and is colorless and odorless. "It's an easy cockroach attractant to handle," she said. McCoy, too, challenged the assumption that roaches stumble into dinner. In his experiments, he starved roaches so hunger would overcome their natural first instinct toward curiosity. He found they exited the...

University Of Cincinnati Biologists Find Evidence For Unusual DNA Repair InArchaea

...Grogan and his graduate students found it was very easy to recovermutations in another gene known as pyrF. PyrF mutants require uracil, but Grogan has beenable to use a genetic technique called selection to isolate them easily. So far, his studentMichelle Reilly has found more than 200 different pyrF muta...

Ulcer-Causing Bacteria Found In Central Pa. Surface Water

Pollution, Food Stress Take Toll On Bald Eagles

...adults stayed at the nest -- a good measure of how easy itwas to find food. "Looking at contaminants was an obvious place to start thestudy," Gill says, "but we had to consider the possibility that foodavailability was responsible. We couldn't look at just one thing and expect to find all the answers." ...

Peptic Ulcers: Stress Does Matter, After All
