Scientists Identity Genetic Risk Factor for Head and Neck Cancer
... might lead to cancer. In these systems, molecular detectors
scan the DNA for injury. A sort of local operation is then performed to cut out and dispose of the damaged segment and replace it with a new one. In their study, which appeared in Cancer Research, the scientists asked whether a reduced individual ...
New Technique to Identify Bacteria for Food Safety

for applications ranging from food safety to homeland security, said R. Graham Cooks, the Henry Bohn Hass Distinguished Professor of Chemistry in Purdue's College of Science. Using a mass spectrometer to analyze bacteria and other microorganisms or...
Discerning Sour Taste
... pH detectors. “There have been many claims for pH detectors
that monitor the health of different body fluids, but the nature of the circuit and the receptors has been unknown,” said Zuker. “Therefore it is significant to discover that the same protein that detects sour tastes also functions as a sentinel of p...
