Researcher Discovers Plant Genes For Phosphate Uptake
...take mechanisms. It did. Then they probed the DNA libraries
of the starved plants for genes that produce phosphate transporter proteins. They found the genes there, isolated them, and decoded them. They also noted that the phosphate-starved plants sent out significantly more messages calling for production of...
New Sensor Will Detech Chemical And Biological Pathogens At Incredibly Small Doses
...rphy says.It can take six to nine months to screen libraries
of new chemicals, but withthe new sensor, configured in an array of 100 fibers, a determination could bemade within a few weeks. A typical library can contain between 10,000 and 10million compounds from which to choose a new drug. "This application i...

UB Researcher Developing Method That Employs "Evolution" To Identify New Drug Leads
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Just as conventional libraries
are only as good as the books on their shelves, chemical libraries
synthesized by pharmaceutical scientists are only as useful as the new compounds they generate. A n...
