Hardy buoys: Texas A&M project predicts oil spill movements

...rsity researchers has developed - and continues to refine - a system of buoys in the Gulf of Mexico that can accurately predict the movement of oil spills. Such spills can present Texas-sized problems, both environmentally and economically, to the state's coastline. The buoys can even be used to locate shi...

... organs or parts of tissues. Wind will continue to refine the technology, for which he recentlyreceived two patents, and PNNL will make it available for licensing. Asa precursor to studies in humans, Wind said, safety trails in animalswould be necessary to see how strong a field and fast a spin they couldst...

Protein vaccine fully protects mice from lethal aerosol challenge with ricin toxin

...uman primates. He said the team also is working to refine a scaled-up production method that is robust and reproducible. This involves optimizing the fermentation process, developing a process for purification, and refining the analytical methods for characterizing both the manufacturing process and the fin...

...es for small, fairly simple proteins. They hope to refine their methods and apply them to other systems with intermediate states. If scientists can understand the pathway a protein takes from one state to another, they may be able to predict protein structure, something that can't be done very reliably...

BioCDS could hit No. 1 on doctors' charts

...eveloped, significant work will need to be done to refine these techniques sufficiently," he said. "It will be at least 10 years before doctors have Bio-CDs at their disposal, and that assumes everything goes smoothly in the interim."...

Scientists identify six genes associated with survival in diffuse large B cell lymphoma

...use they propose that molecular profiling may help refine prognoses in this difficult-to-treat blood cancer," said Ronald Levy, MD, Professor of Medicine and lead author, Stanford University Medical Center. "Currently, physicians rely on the International Prognostic Index (IPI) to evaluate patients with DLB...

Biosensor-regulated gene therapy reduces heart attack damage in mice

...uture attacks. While much work remains to test and refine such a therapy, Dr. Phillips said, this new concept might eventually be an alternative to stents and bypass surgery. People who suffer one heart attack are at higher risk for subsequent attacks. Often lack of blood flow to the heart muscle, known as ...

Faster carbon turnover in basal food-chain levels in aquatic than terrestrial ecosystems
