Breakthrough Microarray-based Technology for the Study of Cancer

...vides high sensitivity, enabling CGHresearchers to reliably identify the single copy deletions inchromosomes that have been the most difficult to detect.Additionally, the technology allows for the use of total genomic DNA todetect chromosomal changes across the entire genome. The Platformenables amplification...

The Shapes Of Life: NIGMS Project Yields More Than 1,000 Protein Structures

...s that enable researchers to quickly, cheaply, and reliably determine the shapes of many proteins found in nature. “One thousand protein structures is a significant milestone for the PSI, and it shows an impressive return on the investment in the technology and methods for rapid structure determination,?said...

Agilent Technologies new genome analysis technology set to accelerate Australia fight against mesothelioma

...zation (CGH) will allow researchers to rapidly and reliably identify genetic changes in tumorous cells. It is believed that specific genetic changes may accompany the onset and progression of the disease. Dr. Andrew Holloway of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre said his team will work in conjunction with col...

Rhesus monkeys can assess the visual perspective of others when competing for food

...hem, rather than one who could. Most notably, they reliably stole food from a competitor with only his eyes averted, rather than one facing perfectly forward, as well as an experimenter with a piece of cardboard over his eyes rather than one with cardboard over his mouth. Together, these results reveal not on...

Insects, viruses could hold key for better human teamwork in disasters

...ety and viruses spread in populations, both rather reliably and rapidly." Understanding insects' collaborative behavior also will help in the development of more efficient and effective ways of coordinating knowledge. "Although human social systems are far more complex than insect societies, where a reduced...

A probe, not an echo

...of the HUTT imaging technology is its potential to reliably differentiate types of tissue based on their multi-band signatures caused by their varying attenuation patterns. This promises to allow non-invasive detection of lesions in clinical diagnosis, which represents the "holy grail" of medical imaging. Th...

Researchers test new therapy for advanced melanoma

...ectroporation can deliver the gene to these tumors reliably and without serious side effects, melanoma and other cancers would be open to many new treatment possibilities." Six years of laboratory studies by Dr. Heller and his colleagues preceded the initial human trial begun earlier this year at Moffitt. Th...

New method shows it is possible to grow bone for grafts within a patient's body

... time that it is possible to grow healthy new bone reliably in one part of the body and use it to repair damaged bone at a different location. The research, which is based on a dramatic departure from the current practice in tissue engineering, is described in a paper titled "In vivo engineering of organs: T...

Study shows humans have ability to track odors, much like bloodhounds

...ented with odors to one nostril or the other could reliably discern where the odor was coming from, and functional magnetic resonance images of their brains showed that the brain is set up to pay attention to the difference between what the left and right nostrils sense, much the way it can localize sounds by...

New technique could alter field of mouse genetics

...c. With the help of a partner enzyme, piggyBac can reliably and efficiently insert itself into the genomes of human and mouse cell lines and in mouse embryos, even while carrying a couple of extra genes, the study shows. "This paper could be a very important advance," said Allan Spradling, an HHMI investigat...

NASA satellite data provides rapid analysis of Amazon deforestation

...lite. They found that MODIS images can rapidly and reliably detect changes in Amazon land cover. Unlike MODIS data, analyses of high spatial resolution data demand extensive storage and processing requirements. And, in tropical forest regions, image quality is often reduced by cloud cover and infrequent cov...

Cyberkinetics, Case to develop system to help restore extremity function

... resulting from a variety of causes to quickly and reliably control a wide range of devices, including computers, assistive technologies and medical devices, and in this implementation (project) the muscles of a person with paralysis, simply by using their thoughts. Cyberkinetics is currently conducting two...

New understanding of regeneration gained by Forsyth scientists

...lls and tissues that allows a biological system to reliably generate and maintain a complex morphology. The Levin team studies these processes in the context of embryonic development and regeneration, with a particular focus on the biophysics of cell behavior. ...

Alleged 40,000-year-old human footprints in Mexico much, much older than thought

...date using the argon/argon dating technique, which reliably dates rock as young as 2,000 years or as old as 4 ...-14 dates of overlying sediments. Carbon-14 cannot reliably date materials older than about 50,000 years. The idea for another test that, it turns out, throws ...

'Uniquely human' component of language found in gregarious birds

...oso songbirds and expert mimics ?can be trained to reliably discriminate between two different patterns of organizing the sounds they use to communicate. "Our research is a refutation of the canonical position that what makes human language unique is a singular ability to comprehend these kinds of patterns,...

Terahertz imaging may reduce breast cancer surgeries

...cal margins. "We found that terahertz light could reliably distinguish between normal breast tissue, tumor and even early-stage 'in situ' cancers in excised tissue samples," said Vincent P. Wallace, Ph.D., lead investigator at TeraView, who worked with Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, England, in conduct...

Forsyth scientists gain greater understanding of how embryos differentiate left from right

Multi-million pound UK Biobank underway

... resource that allows researchers to identify more reliably than ever before why some people develop a specific disease and others do not. "Nothing like this has been attempted before in such fine detail on such a vast scale," said Professor Rory Collins, UK Biobank's Principal Investigator, who is also Pro...

Relationship of brain and skull more than just packaging

...chose brain locations that were easier to identify reliably such as the most posterior point or the centroid of small neural structures." The researchers did not compare one brain to another or one skull to another, nor did they use the data in a coordinate system. Instead, they measured the correlations bet...
