Diatom genome reveals key role in biosphere's carbon cycle

...lica frustule. "Diatoms can manipulate silica in ways that nanotechnologists can only dream about. If we understood how they can design and build their patterned frustule as part of their biology, perhaps this could be adapted by humans," Rokhsar says. Scientists on the project, which includes 46 resea...

Penn receives grant for initiative to help understand genes' effects on medications

... new archetype of research that will develop novel ways of working synergistically to address the scientific, logistical, and intellectual barriers to interdisciplinary research. Recent advances have paved the way for significant gains in understanding how genetic variability can alter drug response. Desp...

... its 2004 winners. This year's winners have found ways to improve existing atomic scale microscopes, employ early detection systems that could help test for diseases such as Alzheimer's, and further an emerging field known as microfluidics. An undergraduate winner, a graduate winner, and a grand prizewin...

The strength of this approach is that it has the ability to represent models of the world with significant complexity. "So far, most models have been fairly self-contained -- but the world does not work t...

Below the surface: New clues to plant signaling from the roots

...t researchers are only beginning to understand the ways in which roots are able to effect this developmental control from afar. Several characterized plant hormones, such as cytokinin and abscisic acid, are thought to be transmitted from root to shoots, yet these hormones have no clearly established role ...

Low dose radiation evades cancer cells' protective 'radar'

... has lead to effort by Hopkins scientists to study ways to use viruses that can deliver ATM-blocking drugs to the cells. Tests in animals are expected to begin soon. In the current study, colon and prostate cancer cells lines were treated with either high levels of radiation or small amounts spread over m...

Bovine genome assembled

... about the human genome and thereby develop better ways of treating and preventing disease, the bovine genome sequence will serve as a tool for agricultural researchers striving to improve health and disease management of cattle and enhance the nutritional value of beef and dairy products. Sequencing of ...

Researchers are currently comparing the draft version of the bovine genome sequence with those of the human and other organisms that have already been sequenced. The results of these analyses will be published ...

U-M scientists see ubiquitin-modified proteins in living cells

...peptide called ubiquitin is linked to a protein in ways that can change the protein's function and location within the cell. Originally, scientists thought ubiquitin was simply a universal "destroy me" signal for unneeded or harmful proteins, but it has recently been found to be associated with many other...

Component of volcanic gas may have played a significant role in the origins of life on Earth

...early Earth from meteorites. "There are lots of ways to make amino acids," says Professor M. Reza Ghadiri, Ph.D., who is a member of The Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology at Scripps Research. "But the question is, how do you couple them together?" Ghadiri and Luke Leman, who is a member of the K...

In investigating the physical basis of biological patterning in the retina, Carthew and co-author Takashi Hayashi, a post-doctoral fellow at Northwestern, looked at no...

New method identifies chromosome changes in malignant cells

These findings provide evidence that inclusion bodies in Huntington's disease, and possibly other neurodegenerative diseases, help neurons cope with toxic proteins and prevent neurodegeneration. The approach developed by ...

Flies have morning and evening clocks

...ch activity at night," he said. "There are several ways to explain that, but one possibility was that there were two clocks running -- one governing the morning peak and one governing the evening peak." Rosbash and his colleagues theorized that if dual circadian clocks existed, they would likely occupy d...
