Despite their heft, many dinosaurs had surprisingly tiny genomes

...an and Edwards are the first to show that the same applies to the bone cells called osteocytes. These cells reside in individual lacunae, small pockets inside bone tissue. This uniquely durable cellular housing allowed the scientists to look back in time at the size of 31 extinct species' genomes: By measu...

Scientific literacy happens -- when students think for themselves

... genetically modified organisms and the like. This applies to science majors and non-majors alike. Right now, we just beat the beauty out of everything, Rissing said. Students learn vocabulary. That's it. They don't understand evolution, nor do they understand the beauty of diversity. College graduates a...

...ystems, especially in shallow coastal oceans. This applies also to fish populations. Previous studies demonstrating a link between global warming and declining fish stocks were based entirely on statistical data. However, in order to estimate future changes, it is essential to develop a deeper understanding ...

Haarmann said, Scientists have long marveled at the honey bee's phenomenal sense of smell, which rivals that of dogs, said Haarmann. But previous attempts to harness and understand this ability were scientifi...

The order applies to all of the natural wealth of the Philippines, and specifies initial steps to create marine protected areas in the Verde Passage, known as the "centre of the centre" of the world's most plentiful shore fish region located at the apex of the Coral T...

Animal testing alternative has ticks trembling at the knees

Evolutionary harmony for stinkbugs and their gut bacteria: A perfect match

...ution of endocellular symbionts like Buchnera also applies to these gut symbionts. The authors found the same intriguing pattern of a small genome, a high percentage of A and T nucleotides in their DNA, and accelerated molecular evolution, thought to possibly result from population genetic forces--for exampl...

The understanding of how to deliver and unload a cancer drug can be extrapolated to all sorts of other diseased cells. The uptake pathways are similar in cells involved in arthritis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis ...

Scientist's persistence sheds light on marine science riddle

...urce limitation. "Only resource limitation clearly applies to deep-sea animals," said Rosenberg. "We know there is less food available in the deep sea than in shallow water, but the area of the deep sea is much larger. Also, the competitors and predators of a species often don't reach an island, but competit...
