UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

...y issue of the journal, Geology. The discovery of deep sea hot springs and an abundance of microbes in the subseafloor are among the most remarkable scientific findings in Earth science during the latter half of the twentieth century, and have now become a powerful motivation for research and exploration...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...hrough which aggregations of diatoms sink into the deep sea, taking their carbon with them. The Kilo Moana returned to Hawaii after spending 42 days at sea. Early results suggest that the struggle for iron may indeed follow something like what happens in the soil. Wells and his colleagues are evaluating ...

Scientists identify new model Of NK cell development

... NK cells are actually found in cellular nurseries deep inside the body's lymph nodes. The findings, appearing in the Mar. 22 issue of the journal Immunity, may offer clinicians new direction in determining how to manipulate this cell type in enhancing immune responses to cancer. "This study is fundamen...

Self-assembled nano-sized probes allow Penn researchers to see tumors through flesh and skin

...e can be used to optically image tissue structures deep below the skin ?with the potential to go even deeper," said Michael J. Therien, a professor of chemistry at Penn. "It should also be possible to use an emissive polymersome vesicle to transport therapeutics directly to a tumor, enabling us to actuall...

Wisconsin researchers identify sleep gene

One way of getting from the faster to the slower state is by opening ion channels, allowing potassium to flow through them. "Our hypothesis is that if you don't have potassium channels, you won't get slow waves,...

Biodiversity hotspots identify conservation priorities

... hotspots, we are not only protecting species, but deep lineages of evolutionary history," Mittermeier said. "These areas capture the uniqueness of life on Earth." The hotspots concept was pioneered in 1988 by British ecologist Norman Myers, who recognized that hotspot ecosystems (most often in tropical ...
