Test for early detection of prostate cancer shows promise
...e traditional two-step approach of PSA testing and digital
rectal examination has helped doctors identify prostate tumors early, while the cancers can still be cured. But PSA testing, like many disease-screening procedures, misses some cases of cancer and in other cases erroneously highlights noncancerous co...
NIH Calls on Scientists to Speed Public Release of Research Publications
...ational Library of Medicine (NLM), is the agency's digital
repository of full-text, peer-reviewed biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research journals. It is a publicly-accessible, stable, permanent, and searchable electronic archive. The release of this policy follows months of intensive deliberations wi...
Programmable cells: Engineer turns bacteria into living computers
...to cells to make them behave in the same manner as digital
circuits. The cells, for example, could be made to perform basic mathematical logic and produce crisp, reliable readouts that are more commonly associated with silicon chips than biological organisms. The new paper applies similar techniques to a lar...
Researchers develop rapid diagnostic tool for pathogen identification
...nsitivity of the approach is provided by using the digital
molecular weights of small molecules to code for the identity of the pathogens and detection of the molecular tags with high sensitive mass spectrometry, which can be potentially miniaturized,?stated coauthor, Jingyue Ju, PhD, Head of DNA Sequencing ...
Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor
...After capturing some quick video snippets with his digital
still camera, Yanoviak contacted UC Berkeley's Dudley to arrange a more scientific study of the ants' gliding behavior. They met up with Kaspari last summer in Panama for a week to videotape the same species of ant in freefall, with a white sheet sta...
