...ot supported by data." "What we are seeing is huge variability within populations," said Clark. "And this variability means they overlap in ways that determines who's going to win and who's going to lose. And that var...

Finished Y-chromosome sequence reveals a genomic 'crystal palace'

...er to minimize complications due to normal genetic variability among males, the sequencing was performed on the Y chromosome of one male, whose identity remains anonymous. Page said much of the credit for the high-precision sequencing goes to the Washington University Genome Sequencing Center, whose researchers ...

New finding has implications for scientists designing mobile audio interfaces

...l talk more quietly. This is a major new source of variability in users' spoken language to computers, which is opening up new scientific directions for mobile audio interface design."

In men chronically exposed to magnetic fields, no disruptions of melatonin exists

...trol study because of the enormous interindividual variability of melatonin secretion and plasma melatonin concentrations in humans. To the researchers' knowledge, this study is the first to examine both plasma melatonin circadian rhythm and urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin concentration in subjects who have been e...

Gene helps regulate longevity in flies, and perhaps humans

... not simply favor longevity; instead, they promote variability in life span. The research was a collaboration among scientists at NC State University and the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. It was funded in part by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the R...

Rising ozone levels pose challenge to U.S. soybean production, scientists say

...ighly variable, depending on weather, so with this variability a 20 percent increase in ozone could occur next year." Ozone enters plants through stomata (tiny pores in the epidermal layer of leaves) and reduces photosynthesis. Evaporation of moisture also occurs through these pores. Carbon dioxide, researchers ...

Research shows therapeutic cloning can cure Parkinson's-like disease in mice

While they did not yet develop a new cell line for each of the mice treated, their results prove in principle that the method can work for all cloned cell lines tested. Using th...

Using GPR to estimate tree root biomass

... dioxide on living trees. Although they can detect variability above the ground without harming the trees, it is almost impossible to know what is going on below ground. "We need a way to measure how the root system is responding that does not involve destroying it," said Johnsen. John Butnor, SRS plant physiolo...

New study shows why hypertension affects black males disproportionately

Envisat observes resurgent ozone hole

...-IASB. "Superimposed on this is the meteorological variability which this year still allows sufficient chlorine activation over a large area and for a longer period than last year." MIPAS will continue to monitor the condition of the ozone layer for the life of the Envisat spacecraft, together with the spacecra...

Familiarity decides if wolf spider loves 'em or eats 'em

...ook alike. I studied this species because there is variability among the males," says Hebets. Previously, researchers had explored spider behavior with young males and females collected in the field, kept in isolation and then brought together in a laboratory. In the wild, male wolf spiders mature earlier than ...

Activity detailed for sirtuins, involved in metabolism, aging, gene expression

...o their jobs, their second binding site shows more variability and is likely responsible for the specificity of roles seen among the various sirtuins each different sirtuin binds to a different target and carries out a different biological task.

Cognitive performance influenced by gene for prion protein (also affected by mad cow disease)

... of this variation accounted for 2.7% of the total variability in cognitive abilities, further strengthening the assumption that many genetic variations with only a small effect influence human cognitive abilities. The mechanisms by which the prion protein might actually act on cognitive performance are unclear,...

Moderate alcohol consumption after meals can decrease levels of insulin

In addition, given the possibility that alcohol may activate the glyoxylate cycle, an energy pathway that can be switched off by glucose, it may be important for scientists to specifically control for the presence of carbo...

Genes control severity of heart failure, study finds

"Following a heart attack, some patients are able to return to their normal lifestyle, while others are horribly debilitated," said Rockman. In their study, the researchers set out to uncov...

And 1996, when the NAO flipped even as right whales were enjoying a banner birth year, "could have been an unusual event -- or a sign of the larger swings in climate that ...

High-tech analysis of vineyard soil
