New science of metagenomics 'will transform modern microbiology'

...entists to begin making sense of these metagenomic jigsaw puzzles. They can examine gene sequences from thousands of previously unknown microorganisms, or induce the bacteria to express proteins that are screened for capabilities such as vitamin production or antibiotic resistance. The Research Council ...

Reading Shakespeare has dramatic effect on human brain

...agedy of Coriolanus, in a similar way to putting a jigsaw puzzle together. If it is easy to see which pieces slot together you become bored of the game, but if the pieces don't appear to fit, when we know they should, the brain becomes excited.

Arctic coring expedition continues to yield new clues

...t climatic events is a lot like putting together a jigsaw puzzle, and what ACEX allowed us to do was fill in a blank section of the PETM picture," said Gerald Dickens, a Rice University geochemist and co-author, who conducted the initial, shipboard chemical analyses of all the ACEX core samples. "The AC...

Researchers show how brain decodes complex smells

...does the brain process each scent component like a jigsaw puzzle piece, assembling the signals until it recognizes the picture is a cookie? To find answers, the Duke researchers exposed mice to different odors and measured response of neurons across the olfactory bulb with intrinsic signal imaging. The ima...

Mining biotech's data mother lode

...th some proteins, but not others, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. BioGrid's protein interaction software includes a database of the 20,000 known protein structures and uses that database to identify which ones could potentially interact, among the thousands of proteins created by the over-expressing genes....

Computers close in on protein structure prediction

...cked as it could be. It's like a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle." The researchers upped their odds of finding the right match by repeating the two-step process with 50 homologs of the proteins from other genomes, such as a mouse or fly. The protocol was first tested on a blind annual prediction test consi...
