Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

... AIDS. The researchers expect the new findings to aid the search for an HIV vaccine that would work by boosting the protective effects of one or more of these genes, and help the body's own immune system overcome an infection. One of the genes looks particularly attractive as a vaccine target. The stud...

Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants

Many international aid organizations are against such mandatory treatment programs for prostitutes as they find them to be discriminatory, violate the individual’s human rights and are perceived as an attack on female prostitutes who are viewed as victims of gender and inc...

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

...ow the enzyme affects the brain and behavior might aid in the development of new treatments for these and other conditions, Dr. Bibb said. The key in this study was being able to "knock out" the gene for Cdk5 only in the brain, and only when the mice were adults. This technique, only recently develop...

'Virtual autopsy' helps identify drowning as cause of death
