Penn researchers explore the role of cell suicide in the development and treatment of cancer

...of the mechanism function, the researchers hope to map out new ways to correct for the mechanism when it fails. To look at it broadly, there are only two major types of diseases: ones where cells are killed and ones where cells refuse to die, said Thompson. Cancer is one of the latter it occurs when di...

GIS, bioinformatics collaborations offer promising new perspectives

...BI) Director Bruno Sobral agreed. "The notion of a map goes all the way from the level of a genome to a map of the United States," he said. "Bioinformatics has focused on modeling from the level of the molecu...

Global consortium announces plans to sequence banana genome

...cause of death in African cattle. Scientists will map the banana genome using a sexually reproducing wild species of banana from Southeast Asia. "Banana will be the first exclusively tropical crop to be sequenced," said Frison. "More than a popular snack, bananas are a staple food that many African ...

Cystic fibrosis patients show too little salt in lungs, will need long-lasting treatments

...f medicine at UNC. This work presents a clear road map showing which fork we need to take to develop better treatments for CF lung disease. What remains is largely an engineering problem. A report on the research appears in the July 20 issue of Molecular Cell, a major scientific journal. Besides Boucher,...

Monsanto and researchers celebrate first anniversary of sharing rice genome sequence data

...ld further facilitate the completion of a physical map for the rice genome." In addition to sharing its data with the IRGSP, Monsanto established a rice genome database at www.rice-research.org, which makes the data available at no charge, mainly to publicly funded researchers. Since the database was e...

New study puts dinosaur noses in their place

...ssils from dozens of dinosaurs, Witmer was able to map the likely position of cartilage, blood vessels and other soft tissues that made up the nasal cavity of dinosaurs. "We looked at as many modern-day animals as we could get a hold of," Witmer said, "and found an extraordinary amount of evidence to su...

UCSD biologists identify genetic mechanism conferring resistance to 'Bt toxins'

...s Aroian. "We have a complete genetic and physical map of C. elegans, we can breed them in the laboratory easily, they grow fast, having only a three-and-a-half day life cycle, theyre transparent, so we can easily see their internal structures and they eat bacteria, so we can express the Bt toxin rig...

Trouble in paradise? 'Natural' pest control requires careful planning, Science authors conclude

...orphose into winged insects. Researchers wanted to map out exactly who eats what, to keep track of the real impact of non-native species on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The food webs, which drew lines between the three members of the food webplants, Lepidoptera and parasitoidsprovide scientists with r...

Better computer modeling provides a new look at large biomolecules

...s and the other with 94,854, revealed an intricate map of positive and negative potential that could yield insights into the function of ribosomes, said the scientists. According to McCammon, software using the new approach will soon be made available to experimental molecular biologists to help guide th...

New epilepsy gene identified in mice

... search, Ptacek and his colleagues then set out to map this locus finely enough to identify the specific causative gene. "It was just a matter of brute force, in which we generated a colony of twelve hundred mice and performed genotyping on them to home in on the gene," said Ptacek. "Eventually, we local...
