Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...ungi have learned to scavenge some of this iron by building a trap. They create molecules called siderophores that are able to lock up iron. And in many cases, only the organism that built the molecule in the first place has the key to unlock it, says Wells. "It's basically chemical warfare by the bacteria i...

Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

...leus of every human cell is made of long chains of building blocks called nucleotides. DNA is made up of just four types of nucleotides ?referred to as A, C, G and T ?and is organized in such a way that A binds T and G binds C, forming a double helical structure. Each person's genome consists of a unique orde...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

...ut there's a suspicion that plants also respond by building up tolerance, for example by putting aside more carbon into storage so it will be available to help the plant spring back to life once the attack has passed. Using the techniques developed at Brookhaven, we now have a way to find out." To simulate a...
