Envisat concludes a busy second year in orbit
...ltitude they wish to see. "The site enables us to visualise
our analysis of MIPAS data in different ways as needed," explains Bruno Carli of IFAC. "It started as an internal tool for our monitoring work as part of the quality working group for MIPAS level 2 data, but it is now accessible to everyone." Anothe...
Capturing cell protein production in action could help fight antibiotic resistance
...ar way to time lapse footage. It has allowed us to visualise
how one cog in a cell's protein manufacturing plan...g the technique even further we hope to be able to visualise
the molecular interactions on an atomic scale. This kind of knowledge has applications across the bo...
Do we perceive using 'mindsight'?
...thing has changed, Rensink says, even if we cannot visualise
that change in our minds and can't say what was altered or where the alteration occurred. "I think this effect explains a lot of the belief in a sixth sense." He has no idea what physical processes generate mindsight, but says it may be possible to c...
Discovering what genes do the high-throughput way
...hibited, they stained the cells so that they could visualise
both DNA and components of the cytoskeleton. They then photographed the cells using an automated microscope. Two postdoctoral researchers, Baum and Amy Kiger, independently studied the thousands of photographs generated by the screen to characterize ...
First structure of transporter enzyme family is solved
...llography techniques, the researchers were able to visualise
how lactose permease binds to sugar. "We have been able to pinpoint areas in the genetic code critical for binding and transport of sugar, which are consistent with information derived from biochemical studies, "said Professor Iwata. By combining the...
Two Max Planck researchers recieve the Louis-Jeantet Prize for Medicine 2003
...omplexes which, until recently, were impossible to visualise
at high resolution in three dimensions. Scientists either took two-dimensional images of thin slices by electron microscope or they disintegrated cells in order to isolate and analyse the components. This has largely changed with the work of Wolfgang...
Visualising potential outcome of cancer treatment
...begun." Using DWMRI, the researchers were able to visualise
and measure the water characteristics in the tissues of mice with colon carcinoma before and after chemotherapy. They found a significant correlation in the water diffusion properties prior to treatment with the subsequent growth rate of the tumour....
New research aims to help rowers take the strain off their backs
...a technique which will allow rowers to measure and visualise
how well the different sections of their lower back are moving together whilst they are rowing. The researchers also show that their technique clearly reveals how good and bad rowers differ in their spinal movements during the rowing stroke. Dr Antho...
...lution," he says."But it's hard for most people to visualise
the virus as dynamic, so theydon't." Until now, many scientists were also convinced that the fluctuations inviral shape that happened outside the cell were probably minor and of littleimportance. So when Smith teamed up with chemist Gary Siuz...
