University of Colorado invention may allow thirsty crops to signal farmers
...ut believe the new leaf-sensor technology would be transferable
to a variety of crops, including corn, wheat, potatoes, sugar beets and pinto beans. In the future, it might also be applicable to monitoring large swaths of urban grass like city parks, Stoner said. "This device is very precise, and will allow a...
Researchers attach genes to minichromosomes in maize
...to create our engineered minichromosomes should be transferable
to other plant species, Birchler said. He said he hopes that he and other scientists can use the technique to create minichromosomes in other plant varieties and produce more resistant plant strains, develop more medically useful proteins and metab...
Diffraction and scattering -- the solution to what's in solution
...nne. "We discovered that the way atoms interact is transferable
with a lot more detail than what was previously thought. Hydrolysis of dissolved metal ions is one of the most fundamental and important reactions in aqueous chemistry. Experiments for this work were conducted at Argonnes Advanced Photon Source (A...
Witonsky honored with Pfizer award for work with EPM disease in horses
...are being made in Witonsky's laboratory are easily transferable
to the examining room. Veterinarians are able to take the knowledge gained from Witonsky's research and use it to diagnose and treat horses that are afflicted with EPM. Witonsky was nominated for this prestigious award by David S. Lindsay, a prof...
Biotechnology's newest chemical tool
...e or triple carbon-carbon bond, placed next to the transferable
carbon unit, helped to alleviate the problems that had plagued the reaction in previous studies," Klimasauskas said. He likened the chemical reaction to a mechanical spring, explaining that the chemical energy trapped in AdoMet is sufficient to deliv...
New Science study: Mangroves shielded communities against tsunami
... authors say that the lessons from the tsunami are transferable
to other extreme coastal events, such as storms. While tsunamis are relatively rare events, coastal storms occur many times every year and create significant destruction. "Just as the degradation of wetlands in Louisiana almost certainly increased...
DOE JGI announces 2006 Community Sequencing Program portfolio
... path of evolution and adaptation could be readily transferable
to crop plants. "By sequencing the monkey flower, DOE JGI will be enabling genomicists to pioneer new territory, taking on one of the most difficult and fundamental questions in evolutionary biology--how new species evolve," said Dr. Richard A. Jorge...
