New success in engineering plant oils

...-like oil," Shanklin said. "It is fascinating ?and potentially very useful ?to know that we can change the oil composition so drastically by simple specific changes in seed oil metabolism, and that this process can occur independently from the adaptation to either tropical or temperate climates." For example,...

Heart failure: Intervention possibilities from imaging programmed cell loss

.... "This research is significant since cell loss is potentially reversible and earlier intervention could delay the development of cardiomyopathy or heart muscle disease," noted Hofstra. He indicated that additional research is needed since the study was performed on a small group of heart patients. "Heart fa...
