They also found...

Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

...other calculations, indicates ice in that area has lost only 200 to 400 meters of its thickness in the last 20,000 years, said Edwin Waddington, a UW professor of Earth and space sciences. Like water on a hillside, Siple Dome ice flows down into adjacent ice streams, where it continues to the nearby Ross...

Combined elevated TEL2 and MYC expression occurred in the B lymphocytes of over a third of patients with a B lymphom...

In the migratory marathon, parasitized monarchs drop out early

More generally, this study demonstrated that seemingly small effects of parasites on their hosts could have a much larger impact when combined with the stresses of long-distance...

Variation in women's X chromosomes may explain differences among individuals, between sexes

In contrast, the X chromosome -- present in at least one copy in both sexes -- encodes more than 1,000. More than 45 years ago, researchers discovered that genes on...
