Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

...d. A common problem with the technique is that the color of light emitted by the dyes is similar. Even with complex computer programs to assist in deciphering the signals, this "cross-talk" between the dyes results in subtle variations that can cause nucleotides to be miscalled. The new method developed a...

Purdue proves concept of using nano-materials for drug discovery

Bee mites suppress bee immunity, open door for viruses and bacteria

...es are about the size of a pin head, dark brown in color and visible on close inspection. This bee mite probably arose in the Eastern or Chinese Honey Bee population and hopped over to the United States in 1987. They quickly infested western or European honey bees.

Bees, Brains and Addiction

...f bees. Bees learn to land on a tile of a certain color after they are rewarded just once with sugar water for landing on that color. A single nerve cell in a bee's brain, Sejnowski explains, is responsible for deciding if the information coming from the senses predicts the sugar reward and signaling to t...
