Researchers Uncover Key Step In Manufacture of Memory Protein

...se they cannot make mBDNF, CPE-deficient mice have poor long-term memory. Dr. Loh added that, in the near future, an understanding of the chemical mechanism she and her colleagues deciphered in the current study may provide insight into long-term memory deficits. She explained that other researchers have...

Ecological destruction fuels emerging diseases

...only just begun. The researchers still have a very poor to non-existent understanding of the roles these thousands of parasites play in different diseases, something that will require a detailed understanding of their often complex multi-host life cycles.

Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

... an accelerated Ras." Lung cancer currently has a poor prognosis with less than 15 percent of patients surviving five years. The lungs, however, are relatively accessible for inhalation of potential gene therapy agents. "While this is not likely to cure the cancer," said Slack, "after diagnosis, gene the...

Genrate: a generative model that finds and scores new genes and exons in genomic microarray data

... application of the EM learning algorithm produces poor results. We describe a novel way of parameterizing the model using examples from the data set, so that good solutions are found using an efficient algorithm. We apply GenRate to a subset of mouse genome-wide expression data that we have created, and ...
