NIH awards new $14.5 million, five-year grant to the Scripps Research Institute
...ve been moving beyond focusing on one technique or another
to focusing on the problems that they can solve. The problem, to a certain extent, may determine the technique used. Smaller proteins may be most easily solved by NMR, larger proteins may require crystallography, and very large protein complexes may ...
New therapy for specific form of leukemia
...This fragment contains the ABL1 gene, connected to another
gene. Due to this fusion, ABL1 works non-stop − stimulating cell growth unremittingly. This process leads to an uncontrolled growth of immature white blood cells and thus to T-ALL. With these findings, the researchers have revealed a new mechan...
Don't stand so close to me: A new view on how species coexist
... the paper. "Most people do one thing really well, another
thing fairly well and then aren't very good at anything else. So it is with any other species. Now we know that they coexist precisely because they each have different life histories." The London researchers assembled a simple artificial community of...

A treatment, not a cure: Calcium silicate neutralizes an acidic stream

material to neutralize an acidified stream at Hubbard Brook-- Wollastonite. Over one hundred and thirty pounds (61kg) of this naturally occurring calcium silicate mineral, mined from the Adirondacks and manufactured into a pellet form, was manually ...

region that governs the brain's higher functions. The studies open the way for eavesdropping on one of the central processes in learning and memory, says HHMI investigator Erin M. Schuman . She and Miguel Remondes of the California Institute of Tech...
U-M scientists see ubiquitin-modified proteins in living cells

MIT: Recycling of scrapped electronics studied
...The team drew on its 10 years' experience studying another
recycling industry--automobiles. To identify recycling firms and processes that achieve good materials recovery, the researchers use price as an indicator of quality. "We hypothesize that the price that's received for those [recovered] material...
