Yale biologists 'trick' viruses into extinction

...cies extinction, Yale biologists are reversing the logic by trying to trap viruses in habitats that force their extinction, according to a report in Ecology Letters. To avoid going extinct a population must not only survive, but also reproduce. Paul Turner , associate professor of ecology and evolutio...

Fruit fly gene research may shed light on human disease processes

...l development in flies and that of humans, but the logic driving their cellular and molecular processes is the same. A paper by Erickson and postdoctoral student Frank Avila detailing their work on such processes has been published in this month's issue of Current Biology, a leading biology journal. Hum...

... in the Wnt signaling pathway, we thought that the logic for brassinosteroid signaling (in plants) would be very much like the Wnt pathway," said Chory. "We were wrong." Instead, brassinosteroid perception leads to a cascade of biochemical events that alter the ability of key proteins to dimerize and act...

Leprosy microbes lead scientists to immune discovery

...producing those key anti-bacterial fighters. "The logic here is that because their monocytes are unable to produce the [CD1b+] cells that can mobilize T-cells, these people don't respond well and become much sicker," commented Bloom. "This research gives us insights about how the body develops protective ...

...ample, could be made to perform basic mathematical logic and produce crisp, reliable readouts that are more commonly associated with silicon chips than biological organisms. The new paper applies similar techniques to a large population of cells. "Here we're showing an integrated package where the cells h...
