Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

... anti-malarial drug resistance genes is painting a picture of how the parasite escapes destruction by most of the agents now used against it, he said., When a malaria parasite is transmitted through a mosquito bite, the mosquito injects the parasite into skin or blood, which then travels to the liver wi...

Ancient DNA traces the woolly mammoth's disappearance

Protein enables discovery of quantum effect in photosynthesis

...and inaccurate," said Fleming. "It gives the wrong picture of how the process actually works, and misses a crucial aspect of the reason for the wonderful efficiency." The taco shell is a sort of "middleman" in the antenna system, sandwiched in between a larger antenna and a molecule called the Reaction Ce...
