New project aims to make large-scale lobster farms feasible

...r tendency to crawl in huge single-file lines when crossing open areas between island coasts and reefs, will be the focus of the next Harbor Branch Ocean Science Lecture Series event, on March 9. "Spiny lobsters are one of the most highly-prized fisheries species in the world, and especially in our Florida w...

Natural Killers Could Lead to New Hepatitis Treatments

... when they are activated coming to a stop and then crossing through vessel walls in response to a signal.?/p> The researchers observed that the roving NKT cells stopped their movement when alerted by a foreign protein, called an antigen, “We think this is a reflection of their normal function of searching...

Recombinant DNA technology may enable oral, rather than injectable, delivery of protein drugs

...s are large and bulky, which can prevent them from crossing the intestine and gaining access to the sites where they are needed. They are also very sensitive to digestive enzymes and may be destroyed by stomach acid before they can be absorbed." To sidestep the difficulty of getting these large protein drugs ...

Gap-climbing fruit flies reveal components of goal-driven behaviors

...e chasm is short, flies engage in an extraordinary crossing behavior that the researchers showed involve three motor programs. High-speed video analyses revealed that flies can flexibly combine, and iteratively improve, these three behavioral adaptations in order to traverse gaps much broader than their own b...

New understanding of jet lag

...suffer from jet lag, the malaise experienced after crossing several time zones. The new understanding could eventually lead to the development of medicines that would "reset" the biological clock so travelers could adjust much more quickly to rapid time zone changes.

Only when the swarm reached the northern tip of the gulf did some of them turn again east in the direction of Aqaba and other areas of Jordan, as well as straight north over southern Israel. This observation led to examination by scientis...

Scientists develop nanotech-laser treatment that kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue

...ls, bypassing the normal cells--like Trojan horses crossing the enemy line. Once the nanotubes were planted inside, the researchers shined the near-infrared laser on the cancer cells, which soon heated up and died. "Folate is just an experimental model that we used," Dai says. "In reality, there are more int...

GM crop that holds on to its seeds offers higher yields

...ght. Because of this, Australian crop breeders are crossing it with its close relative Brassica napus (canola or oilseed rape) ?which produces a better quality oil ?to create new varieties.

Through a process that involved generating and screening thousands of Streptococcus mutants in a laboratory model of the hum...

Biologists discover new pathway into plant cells

...s into cells, but this is just a protein by itself crossing the cell wall barrier without disrupting its integrity. This is a significant fundamental advance in our understanding of plant biology." The research was done with a pathogenic fungus that causes tan spot of wheat, a costly plant disease that is fo...

Travelers can avoid jet lag by resetting their body clocks

Ancient global warming drove early primates' dispersal

...at Teilhardina migrated from South Asia to Europe, crossing the Turgai Straits---an ancient seaway between Europe and Asia---and then spread to North America by way of Greenland. The whole dispersal event happened within about 25,000 years. "It is remarkable to be able to study evolutionary events so dee...

Researchers develop flood-tolerant California rice

... International Rice Research Institute is actively crossing the submergence tolerant Indian rice with lines of rice that are widely grown in southeast Asia in order to produce new lines of rice that can grow in flood-prone areas," she said. In the future, Bailey-Serres and colleagues plan to work on develo...

Study provides new understanding of spontaneous hybridization

...eated the original hybridization event by manually crossing two parent species. Not only were these hybrids resistant to the insects that attack sunflowers, they also produced more seeds than the uncrossed plants. "The results show for the first time that adaptive trait introgression can be a potent evoluti...

Road-crossing in chimpanzees: A risky business

...ers have found that chimpanzees evaluate risk when crossing roads and draw on an evolutionarily old principle--shared with at least some other primates--of protective "socio-spatial" organization that produces flexible, adaptive, and cooperative responses by a group of individuals facing risk. The research is...
