The scientists compared the ancient figs to modern wild and domesticated variants and determined that they were a mutant selectively...

Ring-like formations in drying DNA drops could affect hybridization studies

...ossible to miss all the DNA in the ring stain of a dried droplet, resulting in false negatives," Wong said. "We need to think of strategies to minimize this effect."

Sandia work launched on space shuttle shows live cells influence growth of nanostructures

...f silica and phospholipids, and the slurry is then dried on a surface. (Phospholipids are two-sided molecules that make up cell membranes.) Ordinarily, the drying of lipid-silica solutions produces an ordered porous nanostructure by a process known as molecular self-assembly. This can be visualized as a ...

Researchers say as the climate warms, additional meltwater accumulated in the lakes located in the colder regions of thicker permafrost increase their size; however, if climate warming cont...

Visceral Leishmaniasis: Successful Vaccine Trial In Dogs

A different process appears to shape rainfall in the Sahel. When sea-surface temperatures are warmer in the South Atlantic...

Transgenic plants remove more selenium from polluted soil than wild plants, new tests show
