New evidence of 'human' culture among primates

...at these monkey populations use stones as tools to dig holes or to forage and questions remain about why this happens in this area. Because it is quite dry and barren, it is possible they learn these skills from one another because they have to develop them quickly. To be sure we would need to research m...

Dig deeper to find Martian life

...he current probes is slim. Scientists will need to dig deeper and target very specific, hard-to-reach areas such as recent craters or areas where water has recently surfaced.

Researchers give name to ancient mystery creature

...bout 10 years ago, more teeth were discovered at a dig site near Drayton Valley and on the banks of the Blindman. But the creature mystified the researchers, who could not positively identify it, and exactly where it fits into the evolutionary ladder is still unknown. Horolodectes remains an enigma to th...

Darkness unveils vital metabolic fuel switch between sugar and fat

...What actually sets off hibernation? "These animals dig deep burrows," said Lee, an expert in circadian rhythms. "They are constantly in the dark. Why not darkness as a switch?" Mice do not hibernate but they can slip into a similar short-term state of torpor. Lee and colleagues started with a microar...

Mining for gems in the fungal genome

... "genomic mining" because of its robust ability to dig through an entire fungal genome to locate nearly all the hidden gems-the actively-produced secondary metabolites-at once. The key to Keller's approach lies in a single fungal protein called LaeA. A few years ago, her team discovered that the pres...
