In this way, they could study the genetic role in endurance performance and oxygen delivery systems. Results of ...

Researchers develop new method for facile identification of proteins in bacterial cells

...ing a lot of time and resources on eliminating the background noise to find the signal, our method increases the signal upfront so that it stands out above the background noise. By forcing an up-regulation of enzyme expression in the bacterium of interest, our target can...

Before its licensure in 1995, almost everyone developed chicken pox; thus, incidence approximated the birth cohort, with about 13,000 hospitalizations and 100 to 150 deaths annually. Varicella vaccine coverage has increase...

Genomics researchers discover protein deficit that causes drug toxicity

No single gene for ageing

...of cancer, because cancer and ageing have the same background causes, thinks Vilhelm Bohr, professor at the University of Baltimore in the United States. "Cancer is more frequent with age. We must understand the causes of ageing to be able to understand why we have cancer," points out Bohr during his presentat...

Divergent mating systems and parental conflict as a barrier to hybridization in flowering plants

From the former perspective, parental interests are unified (both wish to produce vigorous offspring), while the latter suggests possible conflict. This conflict can occur before or after fertilization. Before f...
