New technique will produce a better chromosome map

...ach includes two components: the use of mechanical devices to spread and flatten the cells, and the application of computer-based image processing to analyze hundreds of examples of the same chromosomes. With so many crisp images to analyze, computer algorithms can accurately calculate the number, shape and ...

Magnetic computer sensors may help study biomolecules

...ight be used in chip-scale, low-power microfluidic devices for stretching and uncoiling, or capturing and sorting, large numbers of individual biomolecules simultaneously for massively parallel medical and forensic studies—a sort of magnetic random access memory (MRAM) for biosciences.

From the deep -- Researchers find new species of sea anemone

...Vs are also equipped with robotic arms and suction devices that are used to collect species. "It's like a submarine that's manned from the surface," said Daly, who plans to head to Monterey Canyon later this year in hopes of finding more dead whales with A. pearseae roosting on the bones. A successful tri...

Sandia researchers take new approach to studying how cells respond to pathogens
