INEEL uses extremophile bacteria to ease bleaching's environmental cost

...acterium that could help make industrial bleaching cheaper and more environmentally friendly. Scientists have found Thermus brockianus bacteria produce a hardy enzyme that can be put to work breaking down hydrogen peroxide in industrial wastewater, producing only harmless oxygen and water as byproducts. Most...

Genetically endowed worm may substitute for rodents in some toxicology testing

...ing evaluated in a Duke University laboratory as a cheaper and quicker alternative to rats and mice in testing chemicals for several kinds of toxicity. In its natural environment, C. elegans spends its brief life dining on microbes in the soil. But Jonathan Freedman of Duke's Nicholas School of the Environ...

Safety of bismuth bullets questioned: Study

...aves in a ballistically similar way to lead and is cheaper than steel shot, making it the preferred alternative. But the researchers found what they believe are analytical errors in the original studies that justified the switch to bismuth as a non-toxic alternative to lead. Moreover, Gough and his colleague...

New approach studying protein structure could advance drug development

...y more protein-ligand interactions at a faster and cheaper rate than the existing laborious and expensive X-ray crystallography. "The data collection only takes a couple of minutes," said Makowski, "So theoretically an industrial pipeline could be set up that would only be limited by a few minutes per prot...

Asian interest provides opportunities for US hard white wheat

... "Their need for wheat is going up and it will be cheaper to buy than toproduce it on their limited land," Rudd said. "The opportunity to sell toChina is going to be increasing dramatically. They experienced a 10percent growth in their economy this year alone." Rudd said the message from both Taiwan and ...

Unique library of plant genes germinates, takes root at UNC

...ssfully, he said. They also can lead to better and cheaper medicines and plant products like cotton, paper and rubber. "A persistent challenge of genomics is how to capture, analyze and distribute the massive amounts of data being churned out at record levels from ongoing genome projects," he said. "Creating...

Researcher gets NSF grant to create mutant maize lines

...from maize starch, such a refinement could lead to cheaper ethanol. In terms of nutrition, researchers might target a gene that blocks an enzyme used in the pathway that processes beta carotene, or vitamin A, thereby creating a maize plant rich in the vitamin. The project is especially important given the b...

Double triumph in stem cell quest

...g ESCs instead of human eggs, and so would be much cheaper and easier. What's more, because no embryos are destroyed, it would bypass many ethical issues. "If it is as he said, it would be spectacular," says Jacques Cohen of Tyho-Galileo Research Laboratories, who has been investigating alternative sources o...

Masters' students in pharmacology do exciting research testing equipment and purifying DNA

...ting next fall. Karwa's research showed a faster, cheaper and easier way to purify DNA. "DNA must be free from other contaminants after isolating it from a source such as plant, bacteria or virus cells," he said. The current method is often laborious and time consuming. If the extraction procedure could...

Life detection instrument passes key test on road to Mars

...ta needn't be as elaborate. This translates into a cheaper and easier way to build instruments, but more importantly, an instrument that is smaller and uses less power. With the success of this crucial field test, Skelley and Mathies are eager to get to work on a prototype of their instrument that would fit ...

Towards a cheap and easy way to monitor HIV/AIDS
