Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...ea, taking their carbon with them. The Kilo Moana returned to Hawaii after spending 42 days at sea. Early results suggest that the struggle for iron may indeed follow something like what happens in the soil. Wells and his colleagues are evaluating the data they collected and conducting additional laboratory ...

Other applications include customized chips for space travel in order to monitor microbes inside spacecraft or to detect life on other planets. An obvious prerequisite for such miniaturized labs are appropriate microco...

Scientists discover unique microbe in California's largest lake

To sea or not to sea: When it comes to salmon sex, size sometimes doesn't matter

... under the belly of a 20-pound adult female that's returned to spawn, Quinn says. He's almost as likely to be a "winner" as the full-size males that are releasing their sperm in a competitive frenzy as the female deposits her eggs. And the tiny male has avoided the harrowing journey taken by most salmon to t...

Cellular Defects in Premature Aging Disease are Reversible

...ally, the nuclei lost their wrinkles and lobes and returned to a natural ellipsoid shape, and the expression of other nuclear proteins was also restored to normal levels. "It's amazing that we could take a cell that looked about ready to die, and a few days later it was healthy and ready to divide again," sa...

Studies reveal how plague disables immune system, and how to exploit the process to make a vaccine

...ope killing nearly one-third of the population. It returned with a slightly reduced death count about once a generation for centuries. Although far less common now, the plague has not entirely gone away. There are fewer than 2,000 cases a year worldwide, including 10 to 20 each year in the western United Sta...

"Previous studies failed to detect the rapid recycling of forest carbon because they never dated the invisible greenhouse gas as it is literally exhaled by the river org...

Researchers use 3-D imaging system to unveil swimming behavior of microscopic plankton

...hertz "pings" that bounced off the zooplankton and returned data to the instrument's receivers. It's a system not unlike those used in ultrasound procedures for biomedical applications. "One of the most amazing aspects of this research is that we were able to see 375,000 of these animals, many as small as on...

Newly discovered genetic disease sheds light on body's water balance
