The secret lives of whales

...he Antarctic population of minke whales is now the longest surviving whale population on earth. It was also once the largest—many times larger than other estimates. This information is critical to current discussions of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) because some argue that the recent surge in m...

In the migratory marathon, parasitized monarchs drop out early

...lometers from Canada to Central Mexico ?one of the longest migrations of any insect species. Emory University researchers found that monarchs infected with a protozoan parasite fly slower, tire out faster and expend more energy flying than healthy monarchs. These results, published in the March issue of Eco...

Sequencing of marine bacterium will help study of cell communication

...biofilm formation, and bioluminescence. One of the longest studied models of quorum sensing is the bioluminescent marine bacterium V. fischeri. "It was selected by Drs. Ruby and Greenberg to be sequenced exactly because it is so well studied," said Stevens. "This was also the first time a non-pathogenic Vib...

Scientists analyze chromosomes 2 and 4

...me 1 in size. It is also home to the gene with the longest known, protein-coding sequence ?a 280,000 base pair gene that codes for a muscle protein, called titin, which is 33,000 amino acids long. One of the central goals of the effort to analyze the human genome is the identification of all genes, which ar...

The corticospinal neurons connect to groups of neurons along the length of spinal cord, some of which reach out of the spinal cord. They pass out of the cord between each pair of vertebrae and extend to different parts of the body,...

New technique multiplies life span in simple organisms

...terintuitive experiment has resulted in one of the longest recorded life-span extensions in any organism and opened a new door for anti-aging research in humans. Scientists have known for several years that an extra copy of the SIR2 gene can promote longevity in yeast, worms and fruit flies. That finding w...

Researchers make long DNA 'wires' for future medical and electronic devices

..., and maybe even gene repair, down the road." The longest strands are one millimeter (thousandths of a meter) long, and only one nanometer (billionths of a meter) thick. On a larger scale, positioning such a long, skinny tendril of DNA is like wielding a human hair that is ten meters (30 feet) long. Yet Lee...
