Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

...s throughout the human genome to provide a clearer picture of how life works and ultimately allow better clinical management of patients,” said Dr. Dietrich Stephan, Director of TGen’s Neurogenomics Division and the paper’s senior author, “These new, robust tools may eventually allow us to improve our abilit...

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

"If we're right, it means you can't rely on bipedalism to tell whether you're looking at a human or other ape ancestor. ...

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...
