Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants
...termining factor for the induction of flowering in many
plant species. Short day (SD) plants require a short day length (or more precisely, a long night) in order to flower. These are plants that flower as the days grow shorter, such as in the fall in temperate regions. Long day (LD) plants will flower wh...

cancer geneticists have come to believe that such subtle changes are common causes of cancer, and this is one of the first, strong examples of that principle." The study succeeded because it combined the field of gene mutation research and the ne...
Agent slows aging in mice

Soils offer new hope as carbon sink
