Clones on task serve greater good, evolutionary study shows

...to not produce as many flowers (and thus were less likely to reproduce successfully), Dworkin said. There definitely are costs to variation. In addition, this study provides preliminary evidence that a well known plant development gene ERECTA may be in part responsible for some of the change in some genotyp...

...intly with Blencowe and Frey, has provided what is likely part of the answer. By applying computational methods to the gene chip data generated by Matthew Fagnani (an MSc student) and other members of the Blencowe lab, Barash has uncovered what appears to be part of a regulatory code that controls alternati...

Bursts of waves drive immune system 'soldiers' toward invaders

...this cycle of Hem-1 propulsion and annihilation is likely to produce the series of waves seen under the microscope. The cell-propelling circuit contains a third component that makes it self-sustaining. The researchers found evidence that before each Hem-1 protein is eliminated, it recruits an additional ...

In an attempt to find the genomic determinants underlying alcohol and tobacco use, researchers examined 120 families ...

Smokeless tobacco more effective than cigarettes for delivering dangerous carcinogens into the body
