Science and Amersham Pharmacia Biotech grand prize: "jumping DNA" discovery explains immune system evolution

...milar proteins in vertebrates suggests that sister separations may be similarly regulated in humans, Ciosk concluded. Douglas M. Heithoff, USA (California): While pursuing his Ph.D. at the University of California-Santa Barbara, Heithoff identified a "master switch" that allows bacteria to orchestrate the infe...

Synthetic clay could assist radioactive waste cleanup

... said Thomas Chapman, manager of NSF's program for separations and purification processes, which funded the research. "With more development, the swelling micas should prove useful in both waste remediation and metals recovery." The swelling mica tested by Komarneni's team, known as Na4, is one of a grou...

...th the stress elicited by two consecutive 3-minute separations from the caregiver. Three basic, coherently organized patterns of infant behavior after reunion with the parent (secure, insecure-avoidant, insecure-resistant) have been regarded as adaptations to the experienced differences in care giving. About 15%...
