...kills have added a piece to thelarge and intricate puzzle of how one cell divides into two -- aprocess fundamental to all organisms.In the Dec. 14, 2004, issue of Current Biology, Leocadia Paliulis andBruce Nicklas report their progress in understanding how the pairs ofchromosomes in each cell manage to bal...

Researchers identify target for cancer drugs

... Whitehead Institute now have discovered a missing puzzle piece, a finding that may present drug makers with a significant new cancer target. "We believe that we have identified a component that researchers have been looking for since 1996," says Whitehead Associate Member David Sabatini, who is also an As...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

...the same time Siple Dome was thinning. Part of the puzzle has been whether the ice streams were flowing, whether they carried interior ice to the ice shelf at the end of the last ice age, and whether they began where they do now or receded along with the ice shelf's grounding line. Studying the ice core la...

Children's taste sensitivity and food choices influenced by taste gene

...re. Whatever the explanation, this is an important puzzle to solve." Unlike children, bitter receptor genotype did not influence sweet preference in adults. Instead, effects of race/ethnicity were the strongest determinants. Mennella comments, "What I find most interesting is that you do not see the relati...
