Chernobyl: The true scale of the accident

...past twenty years, governments need to revisit the classification of contaminated zones. Many areas previously considered to be at risk are in fact safe for habitation and cultivation. Current delineations are far more restrictive than demonstrated radiation levels can justify. The report identifies the need to sh...

Hantavirus found in African wood mouse

...observed differences are large enough to allow its classification as a novel hantavirus," said ter Meulen. The new virus appears most closely related to the Dobrava virus, originally discovered in Slovenia. The researchers have also grown the virus in cell culture, which is notoriously difficult to do with hantav...

Stanford/Packard scientist's data-mining technique strikes genetic gold

...with muscle tissue in both humans and mice. Their classification system was stymied, however, when scientists included too much or too little information in the text annotations, or used imprecise words such as "pool," which can mean either a body of water or the action of combining the contents of two or more tub...

Shrinking ponds signal warmer, dryer Alaska

...iordan outlined each pond by hand. "With automated classification your accuracy goes down," Riordan said. Cloud shadows can look like water and Alaska rarely experiences a cloudless day, said Verbyla. The most difficult part of the four-year project, said Riordan, was "having the patience to circle 10,000 ponds f...
