jellyfish. With experts glued to their microscopes for three weeks, the cruise captured and identified an astonishing fraction of the species diversity known in the Atlantic Ocean. All of these specimens are in the queue for DNA barcoding: hu...
Cell signaling discovery yields heart disease clues
PORTLAND, Ore. A pulsing
heart cell is giving Oregon Health & Science University researchers insight into how it sends and receives signals, and that's providing clues into how heart disease and other disorders develop. In a study appearing in today's edition of Nature, John...
