Technique may allow cancer patients to freeze eggs, preserving fertility before starting treatment

...sive Cancer Center have found. By having her eggs frozen before she begins cancer treatments, a woman can preserve the hope of one day having a baby. Freezing eggs is one thing; thawing them safely so they can lead to pregnancy is the challenge. In the past, efforts to freeze a woman's eggs, or oocytes, h...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

...explains. Unlike the other males, whose trunks are frozen in midair, Billy Idol has placed his flat on the ground, the tip pointing inward toward his front feet. Billy and the others remain still like statues for several seconds. Finally, the spell is broken, and the quartet of bulls ambles back to the wate...

Human Eggs Can Develop From Ovarian Surface Cells In Vitro

...eiving through in vitro fertilization. Eventually, frozen OSE cells from younger females may be preserved for later production of fresh eggs. This may prevent the occurrence of fetal genetic alterations, which are often associated with an advanced maternal age. In addition, a colonization of premenopausal o...

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

...gins to melt, ancient organic matter that has been frozen for thousands of years is exposed, potentially adding more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. The result is a positive feedback loop that could continue to raise temperatures in the region and further lengthen the snow-free period each year. Since...

Virginia Tech, Nanjing Institute researchers discover half-billion year-old fossils

...ient life have a wealth of fossils and impressions frozen in rocks that they can study from as far back as 540 million years ago ?when animals with shells and bones began to become plentiful. But evidence of complex life older than 540 million years is scant and difficult to study. Now, a research team fro...

Disappearing arctic lakes linked to climate change

...infiltrate into the ground because of the ice-rich frozen soils found in permafrost. Data gathered from the latest measurements indicate that warming temperatures lead to increased numbers of surface water bodies in the colder permafrost regions. Many lakes decreased in size or dried up completely, while o...

The streambeds contain photosynthetic microbes known as cyanobacteria, which collectively occur as thin, rubbery mat-like structures that can spread several meters across the streambed surface. The experiment beg...

India's smoking gun: Dino-killing eruptions

...hered from radiometric dating with magnetic fields frozen in the rocks. Volcanic rocks record information about the Earth's magnetic field with magnetic minerals that align with Earth's field like millions of tiny compasses before the lava cools. When the lava solidifies, the compasses are locked in place. ...

North & South American researchers find architectural abnormalities in T. cruzi ribosome

The cores were then filled with soil which was frozen -80oC to kill any other insects/microfauna and inserted into experimental grassland to enable colonization by AM fungi from the surrounding plants. Twenty mites from the order Collembola, which would view the AM mycelia as food stuff, were introduced...

Without the insulating effect of snow, in other words, soils in colder regions of the world are in fact likely to get much colder. The surprising result has implications for the health of permafros...
