However, Wells warns that such a solution might be hijacked by the political right who would seize the opportunity to enforce a more authoritarian approach. "A modern Green Junta is unlikely to arriv...

Nanotech hitchhikers in blood

...owever, suffer from one major limitation: they are quickly removed from the blood, sometimes in minutes, rendering them ineffective in delivering drugs. The research team, led by Samir Mitragotri, a professor of chemical engineering, and Elizabeth Chambers, a recent doctoral graduate, found that nanoparticl...

But with acoustics, researchers can quickly and continuously analyze the size and population of organisms throughout the fermentation process, often helping to identify specific fermentation phases. In addition to biological processes, this backscatter-transit acoustics methodology has been ...

Targeting key proteins of carcinogenesis

...cleaving the attached Ub. In this way the cell can quickly and dynamically react on external signals. The discovery provides the basis for novel therapeutic approaches that are more specific than drugs like Bortezomib. For an effective therapeutic use there is still a long way to go, explains Mller-Esterl...

Zebrafish embryos develop outside the mothers body and can take up chemicals through their skin, making it easy to test the developmental effects ...

Giant magnetocaloric materials could have large impact on the environment

...necting the magnetism-carrying gadolinium ions are quickly formed or broken, respectively, by the application or removal of a magnetic field. As an added bonus, the magnetic ordering temperature can be tuned by changing the ratio or germanium to silicon. "As a result of this work we now have a better under...

...ity state, they simply couldn't connect. Friction quickly brought them to a halt. Recognizing that these two pendulums needed to have more in common, the physicists adjusted their swing frequencies until they were more or less on the same wavelength. Upon the next meeting, two pendulums could not help but...

Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

...en. We have the tools to get at these genes rather quickly now, he said. The more patients and controls that we have, the more power we will have to pull out new genes and make associations. In another major breakthrough, scientists have discovered the importance of a substance called citrulline as a ta...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

... that we can take fossil fuels out of the mix very quickly is unrealistic. We're reliant on fossil fuels, and a good pathway is to find ways to use them that don't create a problem for the climate.'' Carbon capture has the potential to reduce more than 90 percent of an individual plant's carbon emissions, ...
