Envisat captures first image of Sargassum from space

...ng one computer can do, a pool of computers can do faster and better, enabling the solution of massively complex tasks beyond the capabilities of a single machine or local network. By using Grid technology, Gower and King intend to compute 5-years worth of MERIS data to determine global estimates of Sar...

Fat fish put obesity on the hook

...process, thus bringing new medicines to the market faster and cheaper.” In the study, researchers caused obesity in zebrafish by introducing the same type of genetic mutation that causes severe obesity in humans. The genetic change blocks the activity of a receptor, the melanocortin-4 receptor, which is ...

Revealed -- Mosquito genes that could be controlling the spread of killer viruses

...mmune system, and discovered that they evolve much faster than the rest of the genes in the genome. Identifying which of these key genes are implicated in the transmission of viral diseases is an area of future research that could lead to new ways of combating these diseases. One possibility would be to aff...

Smoking rate has plummeted in New York City

...Declines Since 2002 The smoking rate fell faster among women (23% decline) than among men (15% decline). Rates among young adults (ages 18-24) have declined twice as much as rates among other adult age groups Among all ethnic groups, Asian New Yorkers have made the most progress, with a ...

Modified mushrooms may yield human drugs

...ess of producing biopharmaceuticals is potentially faster and cheaper with mushrooms than conventional technologies. Unlike plants that have long growth cycles, "with mushrooms, we can use commercial technology to convert the vegetative tissue from mushroom strains stored in the freezer into vegetative se...

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

...ze being rearranged, the engineered mice were much faster to realize that things were different and work out the new route. Dr. Bibb cautioned that while the mice learn faster, studies on the long-term effects of deleting the enzyme, called Cdk5, from the brain are continuing. The group is also begin...

Arctic sea ice is melting at a significantly faster rate than projected by even the most advanced comp...or, and by NASA. "While the ice is disappearing faster than the computer models indicate, both observations and the models point in the same direction: the...

Climate change impacts stream life

... over the last 25 years, with temperatures warming faster than could be explained by background variations. An ecological response to warming has also been clear." The study predicts that at the present rate the springtime abundance of macroinvertebrates in streams could decline by as much as 21 per c...

New technique will produce a better chromosome map

...ages: Because it relies on light microscopy, it is faster and more economical than electron microscopy, with comparable or superior results. With a more accurate chromosome map, researchers will next use fluorescent immunostaining of proteins that bind to specific DNA sequences. These landmarks will help...

Slowing the racing heart

...man heart, one cell -- the pacemaker cell -- beats faster or slower to induce a rhythmic heartbeat that varies to increase or decrease the blood flow to the body as we eat, sleep or exercise. "Disturbances of pacemaker control are common in heart diseases. When the heartbeat becomes non-rhythmic and cha...

Sleepless for science: Flies show link between sleep, immune system in Stanford study

...infections and these sick flies died significantly faster than control flies, which lived two to four times as long as the sick ones. "We want to know how the internal clock knows the animal is infected, and how does the immune system know that you are not sleeping properly"" said Schneider. "How do thos...

Decoding protein structures helps illuminate cause of diabetes

... hIAPP in less than a second - more than 500 times faster than previously possible. The speed is crucial for trying to understand a dynamic process like hIAPP mis-folding, Zanni says. The group now plans to capture series of snapshots during individual folding reactions to identify multiple phases a...

Growing nerve cells in 3-D dramatically affects gene expression

Furthermore when the amount of ethanol in food increased the fruit bats preferred food which contained fructose over glucose...

Fast and slow -- How the spinal cord controls the speed of movement
