Genetic analysis rewrites salamander's evolutionary history
... projectile tongues, et cetera." "The results were stunningly
different than what we anticipated," he said. "Only one of the currently recognized four major groups is supported." The study, published this week in the online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was conducted by Wake's ...
A genetic disorder yields insight into genes and cognition
Researchers attempting to understand the stunningly
complex machinery by which genes give rise to the brain often find invaluable clues in genetic disorders that affect brain structure and function. Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg and his colleagues have gained just such clues by studying the brain function ...
Study sheds light on Chlamydial pathogens
...ferences in gene content appear to account for the stunningly
large number of diseases caused by the Chlamydiae family of bacteria in a wide range of animal hosts that the pathogens infect, a new study suggests. The investigation by scientists at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) and collaborators us...
A new way to engineer cells: The Staudinger ligation
...e chemistry class, the Staudinger reaction -- it's stunningly
selective." Named for the German synthetic-organic chemist Hermann Staudinger, who won the Nobel Prize in 1953 for his pioneering work in polymer chemistry, the Staudinger reaction occurs between an azide and a phosphine, a molecule containing a p...
Food web theory suggests ecology may be governed by general rules
... out that the model yielded computerized food webs stunningly
close to the real food webs, all of which were developed from in-depth field studies," said Martinez. What sets the "niche model" apart from current models of food web organization, say the researchers, is its ability to accurately predict a set of...
