Jet lag: It's all about chemical reactions in cells
...erences in light between night and day and thereby allow
organisms to anticipate changes in the environment by pacing their metabolism to this daily cycle. The clocks play a role in many processes: timing when blooming plants open their petals in the morning and close them at night; or setting when fungi r...
Study focuses on only carnivore with 'fingerprints'
...Fingerprints left behind at special tracking-boxes allow
field biologists to identify which individual fisher had come in for the bait and, therefore, count the exact number of animals using an area. Scientists teamed with fingerprint experts at the New York State Department of Criminal Justice (DCJS) to d...
Decoding gene expression in cancer tumors using noninvasive imaging
... of Medicine has developed tools that may some day allow
physicians to view a CT image of a cancer tumor and discern its genetic activity. The study, designed to help doctors obtain the molecular details of a specific tumor or disease without having to do an invasive biopsy procedure, will be published on...
Engineered protein effective against Staphylococcus aureus toxin
...ut one-tenth the size of an antibody. Its size may allow
it to penetrate deeper into tissues, and may make it less likely to spark an immune response in animals. The protein can also be produced in large quantities using the bacterium, Escherichia coli. "E. coli is the cheapest source for making proteins...
Climate change threatens wild relatives of key crops
...obust wild relatives in search of traits that will allow
the domesticated variety to overcome the threat. In recent years, genes available in wild relatives have helped breeders develop new types of domesticated potatoes that can fight devastating potato blight and new types of wheat more likely to surv...

growing neurons on the left and right to communicate with each other, a system that dissolves as the worm develops. Every neuron in the adult C. elegans has been mapped and named. Handedness researchers are particularly interested in two olfactory ...
From ink to optics, study of particle mixtures yields fundamental insights
