Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...nutrients, and microorganism diversity. Working to assist their Japanese colleagues on board both vessels, they made these measurements to characterize how the phytoplankton responded to the iron enrichment over a 32-day period. They also ran experiments on deck to learn how available the iron was in the pa...

Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

...is similar. Even with complex computer programs to assist in deciphering the signals, this "cross-talk" between the dyes results in subtle variations that can cause nucleotides to be miscalled. The new method developed at BCM and Rice, called pulsed multiline excitation, uses four lasers, each matched to a...

Gene variations explain drug dose required to control seizures
