Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

...ale fish farming in wild salmon habits. "There's a double bottom line here. The full ecological costs of industrial scale salmon farming must be quantified as well as the economic ones," says Volpe. "For the migratory runs we studied, there may be very little time left." ...

Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

...such a way that A binds T and G binds C, forming a double helical structure. Each person's genome consists of a unique ordering of some 3 billion base pairs, and 'DNA sequencing' refers to the process scientists use to read out the order of those nucleotides. In sequencing, scientists first extract DNA fro...

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

...g cells. Whereas cell membranes are created from a double layer of fatty phospholipid chains, a polymersome is comprised of two layers of synthetic co-polymers. Like a living cell, the polymersome membrane has a hydrophobic core. The study shows that the fluorophores evenly disperse within this core, giving...

Researchers find new genes necessary to make embryo

Their study focused on the genes expressed by the mother and imparted to the egg, ready to be used during the earliest stages after fertilization. They discovered over 150 additiona...

Measuring Enzymes At End Of Cancer Pathway Predicts Outcome Of Tarceva, Taxol

... on whether CDK2 activity was repressed. They then double checked those findings by "putting CDK2 back," Ueno says. "We found that the effects of Tarceva were reduced when CDK2 was given back to the cells, so this shows us that CDK2 is the real target of Tarceva. "This presents a concept that describes how...

Doing a spin with DNA

...th strands wind around each other in the form of a double helix with the base pairs acting as the 'stairs' in a staircase. The sequence of these base pairs stores genetic information. During cell division genetic material is copied and the enzymes responsible for this must be able to transcribe the base seq...

If it works for them, some thought, it should work for us; I'm here to tell you it doesn't." Phelan, co-author of the book, "Mean Genes," conduct...

Fluorescing lab worms signal longer life spans

...ng that mutating a single gene in roundworms could double their life span -- the first evidence that the lifespan of an animal could be increased by genetic alteration. Since then, researchers around the world have been tinkering with proteins and genes of C. elegans in attempts to understand more about how...

Wild grasses and man-made wheats advance research capabilities

...1 percent a year in grain yield," he said. "Can we double our genetic gain by doubling our variability?" CIMMYT predicted that within a few years, more than one-half of its advance lines of wheat will trace back to a synthetic wheat. And that's from a project started less than 20 years ago, in a world wher...

Analysis of flower genes reveals the fate of an ancient gene duplication

...these genes are mutated, the plants form so-called double flowers, in which petals and sepals replace stamens and carpels. AG and PLE are very closely related genes, and they clearly have nearly identical function, suggesting that they are derived from the same single gene inherited from a common ancestor....
