Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

...20 or 30 of them fell in unison and then made this nice little cascade back to the tree trunk," said Yanoviak via phone from Iquitos. "That's when I realized something was up with this behavior and it was worth checking into a bit more." By painting the ants' rear legs with white nail polish, he was able...

Programmable cells: Engineer turns bacteria into living computers

...cription of how each component works. "One of the nice things about synthetic biology is that because we built the network from scratch, we should be able to model all the important details," he said. At some point in the future, he said, scientists will be able to choose a behavior they want from cells,...

Study shows humans have ability to track odors, much like bloodhounds

...visual objects, Sobel said. "It's actually a very nice and elegant convergence of this area, the superior temporal gyrus, that appears to transform non-spatial information into spatial information," he said. "Together, these results are the first description of the mammalian brain mechanisms for extracti...

Fundamental discovery -- Bone fracture

...extensively since Galileo. "Galileo wrote a really nice paper about bone, describing why elephants need thicker bones than small animals." He said that a paper on bone is published every six minutes. And although bone is extensively studied, little is known about how it works at the molecular level. "Our ...

Lance Armstrong through a physiological lens: hard training boosts muscle power 8%

...iency, which is a muscle phenomenon. But it's also nice to know," he added, "that as you get older that your body becomes wiser in how it does its job and less wasteful in energy usage." Coyle added later: "There's no doubt that Armstrong started with a strong genetic makeup, but he maximized his abiliti...

Recreating 'Flowers for Algernon' with a happy ending

...am," Silva admitted. "We thought, 'Wouldn't it be nice to find a drug that is already FDA-approved, safe for lifetime use and could be tested in mice and humans with NF1?' Fortunately, our optimism was rewarded." It took a medical student in Silva's lab to identify the drug and connect it with NF1. St...

How E. coli bacterium generates simplicity from complexity

...etic complexity basically enables it to generate a nice steady state for itself regardless of what it has to live on." Higher organisms have larger genomes and much more complexity, but Palsson noted that several theoretical studies predict that even eukaryotic cells will exhibit a relatively small numbe...

You will remember this

...to remember the word. Dr Otten said: "It would be nice to know what brain regions are involved in this preparatory activity, and whether it can be used to help people who have difficulties remembering things. Unfortunately we aren't at that stage yet! What we do know though is that it might have somethin...

Study finds evolution doesn't always favor bigger animals

...h happened to body size. "These data show a very nice correlation between temperature and body size," said Kaustuv Roy, a professor of biology at UCSD and a coauthor of the paper. "Although not the most glamorous of fossils, deep-sea ostracodes are very useful for this question because they have a ric...

The giant protein titin helps build muscles

...mplex systems in the human body." "This work is a nice example of how modern biology combines approaches from cell biophysics and structural biology, and it gives us a way to discover why some mutations in titin are linked to diseases," says Gautel. ...

UCR researchers design chip that can improve citrus varieties

... use of all available public data resulted in very nice coverage of the citrus genome. We are pleased with the outcome ?the initial data from the citrus GeneChip have fulfilled our highest expectations." ...

'Scent of a woman' tells male redback spiders to find a mate

If men think finding a nice partner to settle down and raise children with is tough, consider the plight of the male Australian redback spider. Instead of personality conflicts, spats over in-laws and financial worries, imagine that immediately after the first time you have sex...

APS lecturer shows rare video of 'teacher-student' immune cell interactions in live animal

...h node changes over time, von Andrian said. "It's nice that the T cell learns to recognize the antigen, but that doesn't get rid of the microbe that has entered the body," von Andrian said. He traced the path of the educated T cells leaving the lymph node, when they become known as effector cells. In add...

Bacteria give up secrets in war waged on plants

...an get in and multiply," Nomura said. "It's a very nice strategy for bacteria, very clever." The P. syringae virulence protein, called HopM1, has been the mechanism mystery. Plant diseases, ranging from bacterial speck in tomatoes and fire blight in apples and pears can devastate crops. Human bacterial ...

Zinc plays important role in brain circuitry

...he three scientists added that the finding "puts a nice dent in the zinc armor, which held firm for more than 50 years." ...

Silver bullet: UGA researchers use laser, nanotechnology to rapidly detect viruses

...t factors are extraordinary," Dluhy said. "And the nice thing about this fabrication methodology is that it's very easy to implement, it's very cheap and it's very reproducible." Tripp said the technique is so powerful that it has the potential to detect a single virus particle and can also discern vir...

Scientists win grants to develop $1,000 genome sequencing technology

...it of humanity. "The $10 million prize may be a nice incentive to researchers, but our group at UCSD is more excited about the challenges of overcoming the daunting technical obstacles that must be overcome to develop a $1,000 genome technology," said Huang. "Sequencing a genome in a few days for only ...

PET imaging shows young smokers quick benefit of quitting

... be seen in an older generation. Also, it would be nice to see the reversibility in young smokers associated with other risk factors, such as diabetes and obesity," he said. ...

Math model predicts cancer behavior

...ng within a microenvironment," Quaranta said. "The nice thing about computer simulations is you can create ‘what if' scenarios: what if we make the oxygen very high, what if we turn oxygen off in the middle of tumor growth, what if we change the landscape of connective tissue" "By doing this we discover...

One-of-a-kind imaging probe reveals secrets useful for drug discovery
