up an overall positivity score. As a group as a whole there was no correlation between fathers and male stumulis faces, however, when the daughters were split into two groups based on positivity, those in the higher positivity group showed significan...

Physicist cracks women's random but always lucky choice of X chromosome
...ms evolve in ways that allow a "best" choice to be made
between things rather than a random one. Now researchers led by University of Warwick physicist Dr Mario Nicodemi have explained how this randomness occurs and why that it is beneficial. This will help understand the problems of a small number of w...
Tumor vessels identified by unique molecular markers
Results from a new study have made
it easier for scientists to distinguish between growing blood vessels in healthy tissues and those that are associated with tumors. This is a significant finding because this distinction, particularly at a molecular level, has remained elusive for qu...
Identification of genetic risk factor for coeliac disease promises improved treatment
... for association to disease. The Sanger Institute made
available to the study the genome data on 1500 British individuals used as controls (i.e without coeliac disease). The consortium studied over four thousand individuals with and without coeliac disease, amongst British, Irish and Dutch populations. ...

...minants or how much they have migrated. LANL has made
good progress toward understanding groundwater behavior beneath the site, but its work in geochemistry has not kept pace with developments in the science, the report says. More work in geochemistry will be central to understanding how contaminants m...

no lifestyle changes that could account for weight loss. During the inpatient stays, food intake was measured throughout the day under carefully controlled conditions. Participants were allowed to eat as much as they wanted but were told to eat until...

Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance
... version of the much smaller PfCRT gene. PfMDR1 is made
up of about 4,000 base pairs and its protein is particularly large, Roepe said, making the recent work much more challenging. Already, analysis of these three anti-malarial drug resistance genes is painting a picture of how the parasite escapes de...
New bacterium discovered -- related to cause of trench fever

study of the DNA much easier. Also collaborating on the research were scientists at the Massachusetts General Hospital of Harvard Medical School and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Before 1990, no Bartonella infections had been ...
Largest ever study of genetics of common diseases published today
...firm their results. Although the human genome is made
up of more than three billion sub-units of DNA, called nucleotides (or bases), most of these show little in the way of differences between individuals. A substantial part of the variation in DNA sequence between individuals is due to single-nucleotid...
