Are museum collections of ancient life representative?

...or preserve well in the environment. They are also helpful for studying a large number of a particular species, although collection of nicer, often larger, specimens can mean there are few examples of hard-to-see juveniles." Barbour Wood concludes that museums can be an important resource to researchers beca...

Thus, this approach could help to tease apart the sequence of molecular events that lead to diseases such as cancer or diabetes in animal models. Ly is currently extend...

First analysis of chicken genome offers many new insights

... a gene in another species that's going to be most helpful in understanding the human version," Wilson explains. "For some human genes, we might be able to learn more by looking at the genome of the mouse; for others, we might have to look at the version of the gene found in the chicken." Based ...

...ively silenced SDF-1's signal to activate normally helpful blood stem cells, which become too much of a good thing within the close confines of the eyeball. "SDF-1 is the main thing that tells blood stem cells where to go," said Edward Scott, an associate professor of molecular genetics at the UF Shands Canc...

New method simplifies search for genetic changes associated with disease

... disease." Direct genomic selection should also be helpful to cancer research, according to Lovett. "In many cancer cases we know there are alterations in the DNA of cancer cells--deletions, additions, or substitutions," Lovett says. "We've had great difficulty in narrowing those differences down, but direct...

As part of the Innogen Centre's strategy to contribute to such developments, the University of Edinburgh would welcome the endowment of a chair o...

Discovery offers cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment hopes

...ents and chemotherapeutic drugs could be extremely helpful in fighting cancer. "This is especially significant in light of recent findings that, within the billions of cells of a tumor, there exists a few 'cancer stem cells' that seem to be the cells that are resistant to cancer therapy," Trosko said. "In ot...
