In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

...es into immobile clumps. Their finding may lead to innovative ways to remediate subsurface metal toxins. The research, which appears in the June 15, 2007 issue of the journal Science, reveals that the proteins travel far from the microbes that produce them, and then amass metal nanoparticles into piles that ar...

Mimicking how the brain recognizes street scenes

...isual cortex. What makes the Poggio lab's model so innovative and powerful is that, computationally speaking, it mimics the brain's own hierarchy. Specifically, the "layers" within the model replicate the way neurons process input and output stimuli ?according to neural recordings in physiological labs. Like th...

Rothberg's innovative procedure quickly and inexpensively identifies genetic sequences in any sample of DNA. he technology is a novel fluorescent DNA screening assay, which rapidly determines whether specific DNA target sequences are present in an analyte. In simple term...

Darwin's famous finches and Venter's marine microbes

...nds. The other surprising finding was just how innovative and plastic the different families were, even with these core residues, as one or another family had found ways to eliminate any but one of the 10 key residues. Using structural modeling, and patterns of sequence conservation, Kannan was able to show...

Researchers from the UGR use a bacterium to obtain biopreservatives from food

...nificant advance, given that biopreservation is an innovative method in food-preservation systems based on the use of microorganisms or their metabolic products to inhibit or destroy undesirable microorganisms.

Bats prey on nocturnally migrating songbirds

...ion of a bird-based diet, although indicative. New innovative approaches were thus necessary for proving the case. But how to study the foraging habits of an elusive predator that chases its favourite prey several hundreds if not thousands of metres above the ground in total darkness? To elucidate the myster...

Using dental X-rays to detect osteoporosis

...t and staff. The team has therefore developed an innovative software-based approach to detecting osteoporosis using routine dental x-rays, by automatically analyzing specific characteristics of the radiographic trabecular bone pattern. These features include, among others, the thickness, the amount of fragmen...

The connector rotation hypothesis? Phage do not pack their DNA by rotation

...o the capsid following replication. Using their innovative system, Hugel and colleagues were able to observe capsids as they pack their DNA to directly test the connector rotation hypothesis. They found that it is more than likely not the mechanism by which the DNA is packed. The researchers combined single-...

Anti-herpes treatment reduces HIV levels in women infected with both viruses
