Brightening prospects of using fluorescent nanotubes in medical applications

... merit for fluorescence is quantum efficiency: the ratio of the number of photons of light that a device emits to the number of photons it absorbs in the process. The VINSE team reports that they can produce populations containing trillions of nanotubes with a quantum efficiency of 1 percent, a factor of 1...

MU researchers to study the status of black bears in Missouri

...at DNA to estimate the number of bears, the gender ratio of male to female bears, where the bears are migrating from and if they are reproducing. “This study is a good example of the use of cutting-edge molecular biology in the management of Missouri’s wildlife,” Eggert said. “We’re pleased to work wit...

Gene responsible for common hearing loss identified for first time

...ining the data from both groups with a common odds ratio gave a very significant result, from which we were able to conclude that we were the first to identify a gene that influences the susceptibility for otosclerosis”, said Ms Thys. “And, as further evidence, we were also able to show that a more activ...

Hearts of male and female rainbow trout are different

Summary and Conclusions This study expands upon previous findings that sex differences in cardiac performance and metabolism exist in fish in general, and have now been found to occur in ra...

Alien plants attack using 'resource conservation' as weapon, researchers say

... to determine nutrient content. By calculating the ratio of resource use to the rate of photosynthesis, the scientists were able to determine the resource-use efficiency for each plant. "Invasive plants were more efficient on short-time scales, but overall there was no difference in the long term," Funk...

Female-led infanticide in wild chimpanzees

...hanges resulted in a highly skewed male:female sex ratio of 1:3, with relatively few males available to increase the home range. According to the authors, the new findings indicate that although low-level aggression between female chimpanzees is more commonly seen, the observed instances of infanticide ...

The sturdier sex? -- Study by Pittsburgh scientists finds female stem cells work better

...y then calculated the regeneration index (RI) ?the ratio of dystrophin-positive fibers per 100,000 donor cells. Only one of the 10 male populations of implanted stem cells had an RI over 200. In contrast, 40 percent of the female stem cell populations had an RI higher than 200, and 60 percent of the female...

Soft-cell approach cuts animal tests

...ost nanoparticles have a high surface area-to-mass ratio that can make the particles very reactive or catalytic. Being so small, they may also be able to pass through cell walls in organisms, and their reactions inside the body are relatively unknown. "These tiny new substances are the tip of a huge ch...
