Deep treasure to be found in Oculina Bank

...ater Oculina reefs are not known to exist anywhere else on the planet besides off Florida. Fishing for shrimp and scallops has damaged a large portion of the concentrated coral areas of these reefs over the past three decades. However, the remaining healthy reefs still support dense and diverse populat...

UF study first to quantify validity of DNA I.D. tool using marine snails

...f they are from a dangerous fruit fly or something else to be concerned about," he said. For that matter, this ability to detect species in earlier stages of development could benefit ecologists in their work as well, Meyer said. "Scientists studying butterflies are able to link caterpillars to adults i...

Software 'agents' could help unmask reality of disease clusters

...earchers need to get the information they need, or else actually obscure the results. "This degrades the ability of public health researchers to identify, for example, the risk of exposure to lead associated with urban highways or clusters of cancer cases.

Scientists discover stem cell origin of neck and shoulders

...researchers at UCL, said, "Anatomists and everyone else would look at the skeleton and assume that the bone structures are uniform and are the basic components of vertebrate organisation. Our research suggests this is wrong and actually groups of stem cells create not only the muscles of the neck and shou...

Pinpointing the cause of a neurodegenerative disorder

...i. "But we also concluded that there was something else beyond the glutamine that's really mediating the toxicity of the protein." Those conclusions were based, in part, on experiments in mice that showed that increased levels of normal Ataxin-1 can cause the pathology of SCA1. Turning to the fruit fly, ...

Nevertheless, there are regional and global services provided by otherwise local forests, including carbon storage and life-giving oxygen." The U.N. Forum on Forests was created by the U.N. Economic and Social Council i...

Engineers improve plastic's potential for use in implants by linking it to biological material

... of 12 amino acids. To make certain that something else on the outer surface of the bacteriophage virus wasn't responsible for its perceived stickiness, the researchers demonstrated that T59 by itself could attach to immobilized polypyrrole, using synthetic copies of it made at the university's Institute ...
