Researchers discover underwater volcano

Editor : See pictures of "Eel city" and 3D reconstruction of the volcano on their webpage . A team of scientists, led by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, has discovered an active underwater volcano near the Samoan Island chain. During a resea...

Researchers reveal secrets of flying snakes

...ideo cameras to record in stereo, enabling the 3-D reconstruction of the head, midpoint and vent coordinates of the snake throughout its trajectory. Socha found that the snake uses its ribs to change its body shape; it flattens from head to vent. The snake takes control of its flight by undulating through the air ...

The making and breaking of microtubules

... it was impossible for us to use classical helical reconstruction methods," he says, "but there were no other method...Once it was ready, we were able to get the correct reconstruction in less than three months." Next the researchers tackled the polymerization process, watching what ...

Fungus-farming termites descend from an African rain forest Eve

...riculture originated in African rain forest. Their reconstruction of ancestral habitats is based on the habitat of living species and analysis of DNA-based reconstructions of termite relationships. The rain forest origin of fungus-growing termites is remarkable, as extant species of fungus-growing termites are eco...

Multi-species genome comparison sheds new light on evolutionary processes, cancer mutations

... on an analysis that included a computer-generated reconstruction of the genomes of long-extinct mammals, researchers found the rate of chromosomal evolution among mammals dramatically accelerated following the extinction of the dinosaurs about 65 million years ago. Before the sudden demise of dinosaurs and many o...

Spiders help scientists discover how muscles relax

...e the map, they soon had their structure. "The new reconstruction was very detailed; we were all amazed with the level of detail that it showed," Padron said. The structure provides crucial new details. A twisting, symmetrical arrangement of myosin heads spaced around the filament's circumference surrounds a backb...
