Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants
...ta squash species because reliable methods for the analysis
of translocation through the phloem stream have been developed in this system. However, most cucurbits are day-neutral plants, and to investigate the nature of the florigenic signal effectively, it was essential to utilize an obligate SD plant. In da...

of these three anti-malarial drug resistance genes is painting a picture of how the parasite escapes destruction by most of the agents now used against it, he said., When a malaria parasite is transmitted through a mosquito bite, the mosquito in...

of the tracking data suggests that young birds don’t have many direct interactions with adults, and so are likely to be learning their songs by eavesdropping. When it comes to research about how babies learn language, most work has focused on inte...
First confirmed common genetic risk factors for breast cancer
The most powerful genetic analysis
of the DNA codes of over 40,000 women -- including those with breast cancer as well as those without the disease – has uncovered five common genetic variants that increase an individual’s risk for breast cancer. In a paper published online today in...
