Ocean microbe census discovers diverse world of rare bacteria

...g" provides a fast, relatively low-cost method for fingerprinting marine microbial diversity. "The depth of sampling conducted is orders of magnitude greater than previously available and reveals the enormous range of genetic diversity of different microbes in the ocean," she says. Says co-author Gerhard He...

Declining snowpack cools off CO2 emissions from winter soils, says U. of Colorado study

... hovering around zero, Monson said. They used DNA fingerprinting techniques to show the winter microbe community was very different genetically from the summer microbe community. Recent studies have shown that some mountain ranges in Europe and the Western United States, including parts of the Rocky Mountains and...

Russian River coho recovery project seeing first hopeful signs of success

...Service laboratory in Santa Cruz. Through genetic fingerprinting a "spawning matrix" is developed so hatchery personnel can determine which male and female coho are optimal mating partners. "If we didn't use this spawning matrix, we would probably end up spawningfish together that may be related at the level of si...

Researchers develop new method for facile identification of proteins in bacterial cells

...s of microorganisms using traditional peptide mass fingerprinting (PMF). The key to the new method, according to the researchers, is a "shortcut" for preparing samples that makes PMF faster and more economical. By reducing the cost of protein identification, they believe PMF can become an economical tool for monito...
