New method studies living bacterial cells

...ed high-energy X-ray fluorescence measurements for mapping and chemical analyses of single free-floating, or planktonic, and surface-adhered, or biofilm, cells of Pseudomonas fluorescens. The results showed differences between the planktonic and adhered cells in morphology, elemental composition and sensitiv...

New center to map DNA of key lab mice

...Schrader, Director of the Center. "We'll start by mapping the DNA of 15 strains of mice most often used by researchers to study susceptibility to specific diseases. Then we can determine which diseases develop because of exposure to factors in the environment." Almost all human genes have counterparts in mi...

Predicting infection risk of mosquito-borne disease

...on can be lowest just outside an edge of town. By mapping larval habitats against the local risk of mosquito-borne infections, Smith and colleagues conclude, epidemiological models can be developed to predict risk for local populations. Their results make the case that mathematical models can help public he...

While mammalian models are useful for mapping out the neural complexity of these behaviors, insights into the molecular basis of drug abuse can often be garnered from simple models, such as the fruitfly, Drosophila . In the open-access journal PLoS Biology , Ulrike Heberlein and colleagues de...

Researchers probe marine mysteries off the Alaskan coast

...ed, remote region of the world. Using multibeam mapping technology, the scientists produced previously unavailable details of the area, a snapshot that gave them new insight into the region's history. In one scenario, scientists had predicted that an enormous undersea landslide in the area unleashed the g...

Census of Marine Life - Discoveries and Highlights 2004: Scientists add 4m+ records, 13,000 species

...an 5.2 million new and previously existing records mapping the distribution of 38,000 marine species, an exponential increase from 1.1 million records and 25,000 species at this time last year. The progress, which tops a list of Census highlights in 2004, will be announced at a meeting of experts in Hamburg...

MBL scientists embark on international effort to uncover microbial diversity in world's oceans

...ga-science problem that requires new approaches to mapping diversity, grand strategies, integration of diverse communities, and enabling studies that will explore processes--whether ecological or evolutionary," said Sogin. "A problem of this magnitude requires careful planning and international cooperation....

Chicken genome analysis will benefit human health and agriculture

At 7, she's quite old for a chicken and is oblivious to the importance of her contributions to science. No. 256 was chosen as the genome model because she's from an inbred line; this makes her genome more...

Along with mapping and monitoring changes in forest cover, a time-sensitive series of images can allow researchers to estimate rates and patterns of deforestation in and around protected areas. These patterns are also studied in relation to trends in human migration....

Mayo Clinic researchers discover new kind of heart failure gene

In genetic mapping of a large family with several members affected by a type of heart failure called dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), the Mayo Clinic team found a defect in a gene on chromosome 3 called SCN5A. By scanning 156 unrelated patients with DCM, they found four a...

Researchers find new genes necessary to make embryo
