"The release, maintenance or enhancement of these stores under a changing climate will in turn potentially affect future climate change." As temperatures rise, species will migrate towards higher latitudes and altitudes ...

Researchers devise way to mass-produce embryonic stem cells

... traditional cell culturing methods can't meet the projected high market demand for stem cells," Yang said. He and Anli Ouyang, a doctoral student in chemical engineering, grew mouse embryonic stem cells in a bioreactor. Cell growth increased 193-fold in 15 days. At the end of that period, cell density ?the n...

Human trial proves ricin vaccine safe, induces neutralizing antibodies; further tests planned

...ed with human-produced antibodies, the researchers projected that a RiVax-vaccinated human could withstand a lethal dose of injected ricin. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, such a dose for an adult is as little as approximately 500 micrograms of ricin, an amount that would fit on th...

MIT 'seeing machine' offers hope to blind

...laser opthalmoscope, or SLO. With the machine they projected a simple image directly onto the retina of one eye, past the hemorrhages within the eye that contributed to her blindness. The idea was to determine whether she had any healthy retina left. It turns out that she did, and was able to see the image - ...

Scientific issues associated with carbon-neutral energy sources such as cellulosic ethanol
