Nutrients cause increase in parasites and frog deformities

Extra and missing-legged frogs have become increasingly common in North American wetlands over the last decade. Research implicates a flatworm parasite, Ribeiroia ondatrae, as the culprit of these deformities. Reasons for the apparent increase in infection and malformations, however, have remained a myste...

Kangaroo hops in line for genome sequencing

...e success of the Human Genome Project, it has been increasingly clear that one of the best tools for identifying crucial elements in the human genome is to compare it with the genomes of a wide variety of other animals."

When blood can't get to brain, special CT scan helps

...epartment of Neurosurgery. "I think it will become increasingly useful because it's easy to obtain, easily evaluated, quick and highly accurate." The scan is made by passing X-rays through the brain, just like a regular CT scan. But in addition to revealing the structure of brain tissue, perfusion CT also shows h...

Wisconsin chemists find a new chink in TB's armor

...50 years by antibiotics, some strains are becoming increasingly resistant to existing therapy. Now, however, a new chink has been found in the cellular armor that makes these infectious diseases difficult to treat.

Chromatin remodeling may open up DNA to RNA-mediated silencing

... The 'nuclear side' of RNA interference (RNAi) is increasingly recognized as an important part of RNA-mediated gene silencing pathways. Short RNAs and proteins of the RNAi machinery can direct epigenetic modifications, such as DNA cytosine methylation and histone methylation, to homologous regions of the genome ...
