Soils offer new hope as carbon sink

...mber said an added benefit for both the farmer who applies agrichar and the environment is that the carbon in agrichar remains locked up in the soil for many years longer than, for example, carbon applied as compost, mulch or crop residue. "We broadly categorise carbon in the soil as being labile (liable to...

"It is likely that both the creation of novel splice form and the weakening of the constitutive splicing contribute to the splicing pattern changes during primate evolution, suggesting a multi-step process eventually leading to the origin ...

New technique will produce a better chromosome map

...face for several minutes. A simple mechanical vise applies up to two tons of force to each slide, rendering the preparations very thin and high in contrast. This allows the production of much clearer, information-packed images. The technique has other advantages: Because it relies on light microscopy, it i...

Researchers 'look into' plant cells to increase ethanol yields

Stanford scientists make major breakthrough in regenerative medicine

...f the genetic sequence described in the sea squirt applies to humans, this study represents a major step for regenerative medicine. The sea squirt is more closely related to humans than many would expect. It may appear similar to a sea sponge, worm, or plant, but it is actually not closely related to any ...
