Puzzling plankton yield secrets to role in evolution/global photosynthesis

...ommunity’s emerging understanding about how carbon fixation is carried out by picoplankton," said Brian Palenik, lead author and researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego. "From an applied perspective, we are learning some of the tricks nature has employed t...

Deep in the ocean, a clam that acts like a plant

...ergy from hydrogen sulfide is used to drive carbon fixation in much the same way that chloroplasts carry out carbon fixation," Eisen said. The symbiotic bacteria also fix nitrogen and produce amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients required by the clam. Studies of the deep sea have implications for study...

Microbe fixes nitrogen at a blistering 92 C

...cientists have speculated since 1981 that nitrogen fixation was occurring at hydrothermal vents because vent animals had completely different nitrogen isotope ratios than non-vent deep sea animals. The work that led to FS406-22 was supported by Washington Sea Grant, based at the UW, and the NASA Astrobiolog...

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

...lly examine a cell, researchers use time-consuming fixation or solvent extraction techniques," says Brinker. "We can spin-coat a cell in seconds, pop the cell into an electron microscope, and it doesn't shrink when air is evacuated from the microscope chamber." The cell can be immediately imaged, says Brink...

Head-bobbing behavior, so characteristic of birds, permits the close and stable examination of objects in view during t...
