Advancements In Genomics Foster Deep Sea Discoveries

...ng temperatures and up to 15,000 pounds per square inch of “skull-crushing?pressure. Scientists say precious information lies in discovering how organisms have adapted and evolved to such conditions.

Certain fish have a special mating preference

...studies on mosquitofish (guppy-like fish, about an inch long) and found that female mosquitofish spend 80 percent more time with males who have a large gonopodium. "A male with a larger gonopodium has a higher chance of mating, but in a predator environment he has a higher probability of dying," Langerha...

Trio of plant genes prevent 'too many mouths'

...out of action ?the researchers got dwarf plants an inch high instead of the normal 1½ feet. Surprisingly the plants also were so densely covered with stomata that most stomata were touching each other. These genes appear to have roles at two points in the production of stomata. First, they inhibit undiff...

Nanoparticles, nanoshells, nanotubes: How tiny specks may provide powerful tools against cancer

The liposome encapsulates the p53 gene, which makes a protein that helps initiate a self-destruct process called apoptosis in cells with ge...

New U. of Colorado at Boulder flu chip may help combat future epidemics, pandemics

...A. Each spot is approximately one-hundredth of an inch in diameter. The microarray is then immersed in a wash of influenza gene fragments obtained from the fluid of an infected individual. RNA fragments from the infected fluid bind to specific DNA segments on the microarray like a key in a lock, indic...

New technique puts brain-imaging research on its head

... are asked to raise and lower their heads about an inch inside an MRI machine. The process is repeated several times as the MRI pieces together a complete movie of the brain's response to these skull motions. "Phil (Bayly) has developed a set of state-of-the-art hardware and software to synchronize and ...

'Virus chip' detects new virus in prostate tumors

Record bonefish

...the fish was at liberty 321 days, gaining about an inch in length and moving in a linear distance of 186 miles." This distance record is more than double the previous one of 75 miles (Key Largo to Big Pine Key). It also suggests that bonefish can migrate across the Gulf Stream and perhaps mix with the B...

Surprise finding for stretched DNA

...t same molecule measures about one millionth of an inch across. Biologists have long believed that as a molecule of DNA is stretched, its double helix starts to unwind. As much sense as this makes from an intuitive standpoint, a recent experiment proved it not to be the case. Researchers with the U.S. ...

Brain-computer link lets paralyzed patients convert thoughts into actions

Converting digitized intentions into meaningful action, however, is not simple. Active neurons fire between 20 and 200 times a second ...

The secret lives of sea slugs
