Today's article presents the group's first analysis of the more than 37,000 current river restoration projects included in the National River Restoration Science Synthesis database. The authors identified 13 restoration project types and their average costs based on goals, ...

Ireland announces its participation in international marine research program

...trator Catherine Mevel said, "The Dublin port call presents an opportunity to inform Ireland's leading scientists about the IODP science plan and to whet their tastes to IODP challenges. Ireland was an important contributor to European drilling in the past, and we welcome Ireland again, as both an ECORD and I...

Ume researchers have mapped the dams of the world

...ributed globally. The Ume based research group now presents an overview of how the world's large rivers are regulated and fragmented by dams. The researchers examined the world's rivers with a mean annual flow of at least 350 m3/s (e.g., larger than the Torne River in northern Sweden). The only regions for wh...

African-American women less likely to undergo genetic testing than white women

Although empirical evidence of racial disparities in the utilization of BRCA1/2 counseling provides important information about this challenge, it o...

Research shows overfishing of sharks key factor in coral reef decline

Muscle-targeted gene therapy reverses rare muscular dystrophy in mice

...ble online). "Gene therapy in muscular dystrophies presents a unique challenge, because replacement of deficient, therapeutic proteins invokes an immune response that limits the efficacy of the treatment," said Duke medical geneticist Dwight Koeberl, M.D., senior author of the study. "By restricting the expre...

Scientists solve structure of key protein in innate immune response

Oceans more vulnerable to agricultural runoff than previously thought, study finds

... Now a new study by Stanford University scientists presents the first direct evidence linking large-scale coastal farming to massive algal blooms in the sea. Writing in the March 10 issue of the journal Nature , the authors conclude that some highly productive regions of the ocean are much more vulnerable to...

New way to make human embryonic stem cell therapy safer

... However, exposing stem cells to live animal cells presents a risk of contamination with retroviruses and other pathogens that could be transmitted to the patient. Robert Lanza and colleagues (Advanced Cell Technology, MA, USA) used a sterile protein matrix to generate and culture embryonic stem cells. A new ...
