Zinc supplementation found to reduce mortality in older children

...nts of zinc in utero and through breast feeding to sustain them during the first year of life. The failure to find an effect in infants could also be a result of the lower doses of zinc given to infants compared to the higher doses given to older children. In the trial, infants given zinc received a 5mg dose...

Keeping the body in sync -- the stability of cellular clocks

...t possible for all these cell-autonomous clocks to sustain accurate 24-hour rhythms in such a noisy environment? Using mouse fibroblast circadian bioluminescence recordings from the Schibler Lab at the University of Geneva, the researchers turned to dynamical systems theory and developed a mathematical mo...

Gober said that even though there is no way to know if these narratives would play out exactly as the program predicts, policy makers should take advantage of the best information available. "It's a classic problem in climate change science,...

Is biodiversity the future of farming?

... emerging climate change will make it difficult to sustain highly specialized cropping systems which require relatively stable climates. To keep agriculture productive, farmers likely will need to adjust quickly. If we can design farming systems that are less energy intensive, more resilient in the face of u...

Scientists find method to pick noncompetitive animals, improve production

...imals living in groups and bred to be more passive sustain fewer injuries and are more productive than animals bred naturally. For instance, chickens bred to be less aggressive don't engage in as much pecking, which often causes severe injury and even death. The energy that animals used for negative behavior...

Yale biologists 'trick' viruses into extinction

...the mixtures, the virus population could no longer sustain itself and declined toward extinction. "This approach has intriguing potential for new treatments against human viruses," said Turner. "A similar idea already exists in agriculture, where farmers use non-harvested 'trap crops' to lure insect pest...

Shedding new light on proteorhodopsin

..."dead zones," areas that lack sufficient oxygen to sustain life. Subsequent studies established that proteorhodopsin is a light-driven proton pump, able to transport protons across cellular membranes in order to create stored electrochemical energy. In this respect, it is similar to another protein, bacter...

Major society publisher announces support for public access to scientific literature

New study sheds light on 'dark states' in DNA

...pate UV energy, the lesser the chance that it will sustain damage -- so goes the conventional scientific wisdom. So the dark states, which are much longer lived than previously known states created by UV light, may be linked to DNA damage. The existence of this dark energy state -- dubbed np* (pronounced "n...
