Unravelling new complexity in the genome

... or gene chips and computer algorithms, allows the simultaneous measurement of thousands of alternative splicing events in cells and tissues. Until recently researchers studied splicing regulation on a gene by gene basis. Now we can obtain a picture of what is happening on a global scale, which provides a fascina...

MIT team building robotic fin for submarines

...sunfish fin: the forward sweep of the fins and the simultaneous cupping of the upper and lower edges of the fin. When an electric current is run across the base of the fin, it sweeps forward, just like a sunfish fin. By changing the direction of the electric current, the researchers can make the fin curl forwar...

Purdue-IU researchers explore new method for early disease diagnosis

...hod of analysis, called metabolomics, involves the simultaneous analysis of multiple small molecules, or metabolites, which occur in fluids and tissues in the body. The presence of a particular metabolite, grouping of metabolites or ratio of metabolites can indicate a response to biological stress or a specific d...

Changing climate will challenge Northeast agriculture, CU expert warns

New approaches to endometriosis treatment -- mouse experiments point the way

...o have an increased risk of various cancers. The simultaneous occurrence of endometriosis with ovarian cancer, for example, suggests that endometriosis constituents may transfer into tumour cells. If we are able to inhibit angiogenesis in the ectopic human endometrium with a dopamine agonist, says Dr. Novella...

Support for chromosomal theory of cancer found in cancers' development of drug resistance

...lls, making it difficult to understand how several simultaneous mutations can occur in cancer to make them resistant to more than one drug. "The fundamental problem these conventional theories don't address is why it (drug resistance) doesn't happen in normal cells," he said. "Why aren't we all getting resistan...

Scientists ponder plant life on extrasolar Earthlike planets

...osignature is the existence of disequilibrium the simultaneous presence of things that should not coexist on a dead world. The presence of methane and oxygen together on an extrasolar planet, for instance, would be a strong smoking gun for the possible existence of life. Life on the edge They als...

...visual conditioned stimulus (CS). The authors made simultaneous recordings from neurons in mPFC, perirhinal (PR) cortex, and entorhinal (ER) cortex. They then measured correlated activity in ER and PR that followed firing of mPFC neurons. Early in the training, mPFC firing evoked an increased correlation between ...

Fusing imaging technologies creates 'synergy,' helps diagnose heart disease accurately

...he explained. "This synergistic integration allows simultaneous analysis of the heart muscle blood flow with a highly accurate image of coronary arteries and their blockages," he noted. "It eliminates the limitations of imaging with either SPECT or CT alone," detailed Slomka. "This combination could be accompli...

NASA-funded robotic sub finds bottom of world's deepest sinkhole

...s of the sinkholes interior via a technique called simultaneous localization and mapping, or SLAM. Prior to the DEPTHX field experiment, SLAM had been used for navigating in buildings and mines, but had never operated in an underwater environment or with such sparse sensor input. Robots typically navigate by rec...

...) of excitatory parallel fibers (PFs) triggered by simultaneous climbing fiber (CF) activity. Mittmann and Husser show this week that its not quite so simple: plasticity at feedforward inhibitory synapses is also important. The authors recorded from spontaneously spiking Purkinje cells in rat cerebellar slices. P...

Young meerkats learn the emotion before the message in threat calls

...known that human speech can provide listeners with simultaneous information about a person's emotions and objects in the environment. Past research has shown that animal vocalizations can do the same, but little is known about the development of the features that encode such information. Observing wild, but habit...

They expect that such a self-healing system of earthquake-induced gravity changes, which introduces a new role of water in the mantle, would significantly reduce the amount of permanent shifts...

Case Western researcher, international team call for better global warming forecasting

"The simultaneous widespread and justified alarm over global warming and changes in biodiversity has induced both outstanding scientific research and deplorable pseudoscientific work," said Sobel. Sobel raises concerns about the "blurring" of scientific fact with pu...
