Academics find that the finger of destiny points their way

... In a survey of male and female students on a JAVA programming course at the University, the researchers found a link between finger length ratio and test score. The smaller the difference between index and ring finger - the higher the test score at the end of the year. "The results are a fascinating insight int...

The gene cloned by the scientists is called barren stalk1 because when the gene product is absent a relatively barren stalk results--one with leaves, but without secondary branches. In maize, these s...

Consequences of exposure to an energy rich diet during development

...esults from a recent study entitled "Developmental programming of aortic and renal structure in offspring of rats fed fat-rich diets in pregnancy". In this paper we show that rats eating a high fat diet when pregnant give birth to offspring that develop abnormalities in their large arteries similar to those asso...

For young canaries learning their song, freedom in youth gives way to rules in adulthood

...thor on the Science paper, also contributed to the programming and analysis. Adds Gardner, "One reason these kinds of observations have not made it into the scientific literature before is that they are very difficult to quantify. But this computationally intensive process made for more robust results." From tim...

UC San Diego undergraduates do cyberinfrastructure research in Asia, Australia

...research. Much of Lee's work will involve computer programming - a far cry from the 'wet' lab work she is accustomed to doing. "I feel that a variety of experiences is important in undergraduate education," noted Lee, who turns 21 within days of arriving in Taiwan. "This is the time before you commit and special...

ASU researcher fashions DNA to further advances in nanotechnology

...gth. One nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. By programming into the assembly a short sequence of DNA that recognizes a particular protein, called an aptamer, Yan created a DNA molecule that could now function as a biomolecular tether. "This is the first time ever an aptamer has been utilized to link proteins...
