This special character confers on it the exceptional, rare ability to form nodules on the stems of its host-plant. The plant thus acquires the possibility of fixing much higher quantities...

New collaborative research reveals chimpanzees can sustain multiple-tradition cultures

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers develop 'off-the-shelf' vascular grafts

...oach is that the graft could utilize the patient’s own stem cells and be ready for implantation almost immediately or, at most, after a relatively short culture period. This suggests that we could make these available ‘off-the-shelf,’ which is an essential element for clinical translation,” he explained....
