New Technique for Tracking Gene Regulators

...he cell ?we arejust beginning to decipher it,?said biologist John Dunn, who ledBrookhaven’s role in the research. “It’s as if we have in our hands agiant book of life, but we are barely beginning to learn how to readit.?“Our technique gives us a new way to index the code, to find the placeswhere regulators act...

Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

...rge samples or the spatial aspect," says fisheries biologist Ransom Myers of the University of Dalhousie. "This study goes far beyond a theoretical model. They tested the model in the real world, using an enormous data set, and saw the same patterns. It is a very thorough analysis." "We've tried to be very ca...

Discovery clarifies role of peptide in biological clock

A biologist at Washington University in St. Louis is giving the VIP treatment to laboratory mice in hopes of unraveling more clues about our biological clock. VIP is not "very important person," but vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), a neuropeptide origin...

A New Species of Monkey is Discovered in Tanzania: The First in Africa for More Than 20 Years

...ighted by Richard Laizzer and observed by research biologist Trevor Jones, while working as field assistants for the project, the monkey was then identified as a new species by Ehardt and by Dr. Tom Butynski, who directs Conservation International (CI)’s Eastern Africa Biodiversity Hotspots Program. When Ehard...

Researchers reveal secrets of flying snakes

...n tree snake. In this study, Socha, who also is a biologist at Argonne National Laboratory, found that paradise tree snakes are true gliders, traveling further horizontally than dropping vertically. The best flight Socha recorded traveled 13 degrees from the horizon at the end of its trajectory. Socha correl...

Massey Cancer Center researcher helps to identify a piece of the cancer puzzle

A structural biologist from the Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center, in collaboration with researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, has identified the crystal structure of a protein that plays a role in supplying nutrients to solid tumors. ...

Malaria mechanism revealed

...him that this was a good project," says structural biologist Leemor Joshua-Tor of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, who led the research. A major pathway through which malaria parasites invade red blood cells is the binding of a protein on the surface of merozoites called EBA-175 to a receptor protein on the sur...

Scientists discover global pattern of big fish diversity in open oceans

...g that was buried," says Daniel Pauly, a fisheries biologist from the University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre. "The long-term trend of decline is not discernable at first because there are lots of things happening ?like the short-term effects of El Nino." "We know there are decadal patterns in climate...

Richard Rodewald, a program officer and cell biologist at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, which funded the research, noted that "these studies provide a persuasive model, in elegant atomic detail, for how binding of GTP to a specific site in tubulin leads to far-reaching structural ch...

Certain fish have a special mating preference

A biologist at Washington University in St. Louis has shown that for some fish species, females prefer males with larger sexual organs, and actually choose them for mating. That does not exclude males with an average-sized sex organ, called a gonopodium. These f...
