Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

...ymorphisms, or SNPs, to identify players that have fallen under the radar of older methods. The group has discovered another signaling molecule that seems to increase a person’s risk for rheumatoid arthritis by 30 percent. (The paper reporting the gene is in press.) In collaborations with other scienti...

Mystery of fossilized trees is solved

... fossils were found near Gilboa of trees which had fallen sideways, with their trunk, branches, twigs and cr...est ecosystems. Branches from the trees would have fallen to the floor and decayed, providing a new food chain for the bugs living below. "This was also a ...

A healthier start to a pig's life

...ontrol these rapidly-spreading infections have now fallen out of use, mainly due to the increase in resistant strains of bacteria.

Faster, low cost sequencing technologies needed to drive era of personalized medicine

...ble. In the past generation, sequencing costs have fallen 100-fold, from roughly a dollar a DNA base to a penny, but are still far out of reach for the public. Zhang's technological vision would enable scientists to sequence billions of base pairs of DNA in a single day. This is the size of an average m...

NHGRI aims to make DNA sequencing faster, more cost effective

...sequencing technologies. DNA sequencing costs have fallen more than 50-fold over the past decade, fueled in large part by tools, technologies and process improvements developed as part of the successful project to sequence the human genome. However, it still costs around $10 million to sequence 3 billion ba...

"If the IIM is being degraded by the enzyme, pieces of it should not appear in the fecal pellets of the insect," notes the Penn State researcher. When used in conjunction with the Bt-toxin, a low dose of Mir1-CP was able to achieve a...

Predators keep the world green, ecologists find

...ds and peats. "I just scraped the surface of the fallen cliff section ?which was in a block that had recently slid down the cliff ?and uncovered an orange streak which turned out to be an antler." As the block was in danger of imminent collapse, which would have crushed the antler, Dr Davey arranged for...

Genetic defenders protect crops from fungal disease

Tabashnik said, "Some of the other pests are not so much of a problem because we're not killing their natural enemies with insecticides." Dennehy added, "These soft toxins plus the good bugs acting ...

Study provides insight into cellular defenses against genetic mutation

... cell concludes that the stop codon has mistakenly fallen in the middle of a set of instructions. Specifically, Medical Center researchers now believe a stop codon is labeled premature when it occurs more than 55 nucleotides upstream (toward the 5-prime end) of an exon-exon junction.
