Regardless of whether ocean circulation speeds up or slows down it causes...

Migration alert -- How tumor cells home in on the lymphatic system

...searcher Jacqueline Shields provide an explanation along with data to support it. Tumors produce excess fluid that continually percolates from the tumor towards nearby lymphatic vessels. The EPFL research shows how tumor cells use a clever chemical strategy to exploit this slow, one-way flow in order to...

Plants recognize their siblings, biologists discover

...own for a long time that some pairs of species get along better than others, and scientists are starting to catch up with why that happens,” says Dudley. “What I’ve found is that plants from the same mother may be more compatible with each other than with plants of the same species that had different mothe...
