Space measurements of carbon offer clearer view of Earth's climate future

...pensive to perform, requiring for example, complex equipment with pressurised bottles, lasers, spectrometers or towers measuring changes in carbon flux. There are only about a hundred such measuring stations to cover the entire Earth. "Even low-resolution satellite measurements would be a useful addition," ex...

Researchers identify new catfish family

...as scanned by high-resolution computer tomographic equipment at The University of Texas at Austin. "To most people it's just a catfish, and externally it looks a lot like an ictalurid, the family to which all North American freshwater catfishes belong." Hendrickson said. "But once we got into the skeleton, we ...

With a noisy Honda generator providing power, they set up their experiments and, with six other colleagues, tested the integrated subcr...

DNA scans reveal possible location of lung cancer genes

BOSTON--With equipment designed to probe the smallest segments of the genetic code, researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and collaborating institutions have found something much larger: sections of the chromosomes of lung cancer cells where cancer-related genes may ...

How HIV disables the cells' call for help

...lls. A virus, especially one with its own surface equipment for seeking out specific T cells, would be hard-pressed to slip past these receptors without raising the alarm. The scientists surmised that the virus must be able to actively disable some part of the immune cell's system. They investigated a pept...
