The Shapes Of Life: NIGMS Project Yields More Than 1,000 Protein Structures

...rmed protein structure determination from a mostly manual process to a highly automated one. Robotic instruments rapidly clone, express, purify, crystallize, and analyze many proteins simultaneously, cutting the time it takes to determine a single protein structure from months to days. For example, a roboti...

PANTHER Protein Classification System Database 5.0

...sed on a combination of advancedbioinformatics and manual data curation,?said Paul D. Thomas, SeniorDirector of Computational Biology for Applied Biosystems, PrimaryInvestigator for the development of the PANTHER system, and lead authorof the paper. “The significant enhancements in the latest versionprovide...

GeneNotes - A novel information management software for biologists

...esults is far from perfect and requires nontrivial manual examination. The timely selection, integration and interpretation of heterogeneous biological information still heavily rely on the sensibility of biologists. Biologists often feel overwhelmed by the huge amount of and the great diversity of distribu...

Many needles, many haystacks

... list" of such machines; what's lacking now is the manual telling where all the pieces go. A new study by scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) promises to answer this question for some of the smallest and trickiest components in the cellular toolbox. Their work appears in the curre...

Picking particles faster than one at a time

... fruit-fly. Although an initial comparison between manual selection and automatic selection indicated that 15 percent of the program's nominations were false positives, when the program was run again -- using a template after segmentation to filter out incompatible shapes -- false positives dropped to a mer...

AIDS drug from sunflowers

...for this transfer. If we can find the construction manual for this enzyme, i.e. the corresponding gene, and can smuggle it into the bacteria, the latter can produce the enzyme in large quantities. The critical step of synthesis would then be child's play and could be carried out on an industrial basis by us...

Mitochondrial DNA sequencing tool updated

...ochondrial genome much faster than the traditional manual and automated strategies. Just as importantly, like an iPod to music lover, the chip served as the broad technological platform for laboratories to customize arrays more attuned to their research interests. In 2004, Dr. Anirban Maitra and his coll...

How healthy is that marsh? Biologists count parasites

...t as we predicted." Hechinger hopes to produce a manual for resources managers that will explain how to collect snails, identify the trematodes inside them, and then translate this information into information on resident populations of birds, fishes and benthic invertebrates. "We think counting trematod...

Elasticity imaging identifies cancers and reduces breast biopsies

...ication of a routine ultrasound exam. It is like a manual self-exam but much more sensitive. The noninvasive technique works by gauging how much tissue moves when pushed, and it can detect how soft or stiff an object is. “There are no needles,?Dr. Barr explained. “The patient does not notice any difference...

Nerve cell software keeps track of brain change

... this one hundred times faster than a person using manual tracing methods can," Dr Vallotton says. "This improvement will speed the progress of brain research ?research which is becoming increasingly urgent in a world where tens of millions of people suffer neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and ...

The new procedure developed by Eva-Kathrin Sinner and her research group makes it possible, for the first time...

Robotic therapy helps restore hand use after stroke

...percent on the Box-and-Blocks Test, which assesses manual dexterity as one moves blocks from one side of a box to another in one minute. The patients also developed a 17 percent greater range of motion in their hands and wrists and were rated as less disabled on a standard occupational therapy assessme...

When your brain talks, your muscles don't always listen

... elderly, it is possible to use exercise bands for manual resistance to improve the speed of movement." Knight has always been interested in how the body adapts to exercise. When he entered college years ago, his goal was to become an elite track-and-field athlete. While he competed well, he realized tha...

Double the death rate from cirrhosis for 'blue collar' men

Heavy or binge drinking is one of the main contributors to the development of liver cirrhosis. Professor Najman said the study results suggested th...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...o clones of longer sequences. With the painstaking manual assembly taken as far as practical, the researchers mapped the sequences to their physical locations on the chromosomes. The sequence and maps prepared the ground for the next stage in the process, the functional analysis of the fly's heterochromatin...

New findings challenge established views on human genome

... similar to having all the pages of an instruction manual needed to make the human body. Researchers still must learn how to read the manual’s language so they can identify every part and understand how the parts work together to contribute to health and disease. In recent years, researchers have made m...
