Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer

...an of Sanger said, "The results give a fascinating glimpse of how this ancient parasite evolved and highlight unusual metabolic processes that may be exploitable as drug targets." The project also identified some large families of surface proteins that may help mediate the amoeba's ability to evade the huma...

Photos show jaguar vamping for camera

...infrared beam, capture little more than a fleeting glimpse of wildlife. No one knows why this particular jaguar spent so much time in front of the camera, where it alternatively sat, laid on his side or on his back with his feet in the air, rolled over, slept or simply stared back at the lens. "Perhaps he's...

Grizzlies set to invade high Arctic?

Evolution of life on Earth may hold key to finding life in outer space

... explores extreme environments of Earth for a rare glimpse at microbes known as extremophiles that thrive in environments once thought too extreme to sustain life. Given the intense conditions under which these microbes are able to exist on Earth, the likelihood of finding life in outer space also increases....

Science's Breakthrough of the Year: Watching evolution in action

...the human genetic sequence, hoping to get a better glimpse of the human species' evolutionary history. The two studies give scientists new material for studying conditions from AIDS to heart disease, and may lay the groundwork for a future of personalized genetic medicine. This year's sequencing of the 1918...

NIH launches comprehensive effort to explore cancer genomics

This atlas will enable researchers throughout the world to analyze and use the data in their own research to develop new d...

Researchers use dirt to stay one step ahead of antibiotic resistance

...ht. "Their coping tactics may be able to give us a glimpse into the future of clinical resistance to antibiotics." "This research suggests that not only can the study of resistance in the soil help predict future clinical emergence, but it can also guide the development of therapies to counteract this res...

Novel molecular 'signature' marks DNA of embryonic stem cells

...gram at the Broad Institute. "It has allowed us to glimpse the molecular strategies that cells use to maintain an almost infinite potential, which will have important applications to our understanding of normal biology and disease." Chromatin–the protein scaffold that surrounds DNA ?acts not only as a supp...

Forsyth scientists gain greater understanding of how embryos differentiate left from right

...ge and pH gradients. For the first time, we have a glimpse of how three different vertebrates utilize such ion flows in concert with ciliary movement and the function of pre-nervous neurotransmitters." The findings, to be published in the May 1 issue of Development (available online on April 18th) are key f...

Scientists have long studied the immune system, imagining how many of the component cells proceed on their microscopic duties. Until recently, there has been no way to directly view much of this complex cel...

How can identical twins be genetically different?

... with this process. "This paper describes only a glimpse of what this approach might reveal. There are many other categories of genes where expression varies between twins. We are just beginning to understand how RA is able to affect people in different ways. The newly discovered genes provide important in...
