It may even be the case that a partial reduction of toxic protein levels allows the brain cells' machinery to "catch up" with the disease-causing protein and cl...

New miniaturised chip dramatically reduces time taken for DNA analysis

...of an organism. DNA chips are limited to a certain extent because of some very specific analytical problems, such as establishing the source of microbial contamination quickly and efficiently. The new miniaturised electrochemical genosensors meet the current need for DNA to be analysed at a low cost with ea...

Researchers predict infinite genomes

... don't know--and apparently, we'll never know--the extent of its diversity." To interpret this infinite view of microbial genomes, Tettelin and colleagues propose describing a species by its "pan-genome": the sum of a core genome, containing genes present in all strains, and a dispensable genome, with gene...

Lands surface change on Alaska tundra creating longer, warmer summers in Arctic

...o a longer snow-free season and an increase in the extent of woody vegetation. Both of these changes increase the amount of solar radiation that goes into heating rather than being reflected back to the atmosphere. Epstein said that since the early 1960s the spring thaw in Alaska's tundra country is arriv...
