Billions of dollars saved in US by polio vaccination

...r Advisor and an expert on polio said, "This study documents the extraordinary power of vaccines not only as highly effective tools to prevent disease, disability, and death, but to provide enormous economic savings to society." Although the last case of paralytic polio from wild poliovirus occurred in the...

Volcanic eruptions, ancient global warming linked

... The study is important, experts say, because it documents the Earth’s response to the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases ?carbon dioxide and methane ?into the atmosphere, and definitively links a major volcanic event with a period of global warming. "There has been evidence in the marine record...

ASU researchers test antibacterial effects of healing clays

...f successful healing with the clay treatments. WHO documents indicate that the organization was receptive, calling her results "impressive," yet, Williams notes, funding was denied for lack of scientific study. Williams, from a family of physicians, says that it was really the second message that finally dr...

Scientist's persistence sheds light on marine science riddle

... database Malacolog ( www.data.acnatsci.org/wasp ) documents species of mollusks in the Western Atlantic, from Greenland to Antarctica. Scientists have suggested several explanations for the evolution of body size in animals isolated on islands: reduced area, fewer predators, less competition, and resource l...

New tiger report release: Tiger habitat down from just a decade ago

...sion with buy-in from stakeholders. "This report documents a low-water mark for tigers, and charts a way forward to reverse the tide," said John Robinson of the Wildlife Conservation Society. "We can save tigers forever. However, tiger conservation requires commitment from local partners, governments and int...

Ernst Mayr's theory illustrated in genetic epidemiology studies

...r in another. This is a very real phenomenon that documents Mayr's point of view." Templeton said that the Fisher camp views major and minor genes as if they are the properties of the single gene itself. His, Wright's and Mayr's view is that major and minor are properties of an interactive genetic system, a...

Study finds that nutritionally enhanced rice reduces iron deficiency

... of total body iron in their blood. "This study documents a major breakthrough in the battle to prevent micronutrient malnutrition," said Dr. Robert Zeigler, director general of IRRI. "These results are especially important for rice-eating regions of the world where more than 3 billion of the world's poor a...

Setting the standard for computer models of life

... a set of 'annotation schemes'. The first of these documents the model's provenance: who created it, whether it's been modified, and a stable link to its full description; the second scheme links the components of the model to relevant bioinformatics resources: for example, a model of alcohol metabolism in the...

A bug's life: Exceptional genomic stability yet rapid protein evolution in a carpenter ant mutualist

...utualists remains unclear. While the current study documents rapid changes in amino acid sequence through evolutionary time, some studies suggest that most changes in proteins are slightly harmful to the bacterium and by extension, to its host. "Overall, the picture emerging is one of genome deterioration, wi...

A step toward the $1,000 personal genome using readily available lab equipment

... multiple passes over the same sequences, a camera documents the results and routes them to computers that reinterpret the data as a linear sequence of base pairs. In their study, the researchers matched the sequence information against a reference genome, finding genetic variation in the bacterial DNA that h...
