Male elephants woo females with precise chemistry

The exact chemical blend of a pheromone emitted by older male elephants in musth influences both a female elephant's interest in mating and how other surrounding elephants behave, a new study has found. The researchers at Oregon Health & Science University and the Univ...

New nanosensor uses quantum dots to detect DNA

...and mutations." The technique involves an unusual blend of organic and inorganic components. "We are the first to demonstrate the use of quantum dots as a DNA sensor," Wang said. Quantum dots are crystals of semiconductor material, whose sizes are only in the range of a few nanometers across. (A nanomet...

Purdue creates new low-cost system to detect bacteria

... squares and triangles, but each face has a unique blend of these shapes. We did something similar. We reduced complicated scatter patterns to 120 numbers based on Zernike polynomials." This reduced collection of numbers describes how well the colony fits the template, and then pattern recognition softwa...
