Food-crop yields in future greenhouse-gas conditions lower than expected

...primarily because CO2 increases photosynthesis and decreases crop water use. Although more than 340 independent chamber studies have been analyzed to project yields under rising CO2 levels, most plants grown in enclosures can differ greatly from those grown in farm fields, Long said. FACE has been the only te...

Hopkins researchers discover genetic switch that turns off an oxygen-poor cell's combustion engine

...F-1 as it helps cell survive when a lack of oxygen decreases production of an energy-rich molecule called ATP and increases production of toxic molecules. ATP supplies energy the cell needs to perform each of its many chemical reactions and tasks, and in this way acts as the "currency" for the cell's energy e...

The presence of one apoE4 allele results in an estimated 45 percent chance of developing Alzheimer's by 85 years of age. With two apoE4 alleles, the risk increases to 50?0 percent. "Insights into the basic biology of apoE-...

Stanford study of owls finds link in brain between sight and sound
