New online portal merges vast data on Gulf of Maine ecosystem

...wn by leaps and bounds as a result of computer and sensor technology, valuable collections of biological, oceanographic and geologic data from public and private institutions have, in large part, remained in isolation from each other. For the first time, the Dynamic Atlas brings this information together in...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

... Zhang says. "This is the first indication that a sensor for protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum can also signal the nucleus to regulate gene rearrangements required for B cell differentiation," Kaufman says. "It's a completely unexpected observation. Learning more about the IRE1 signaling pathway...

Light therapy may combat fungal infections, new evidence suggests

...ungal lineage, an indication that the fungal light sensor arose early in evolution and may be shared by many extant fungal species. Other well-studied fungi, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or baker's yeast, have apparently lost their ability to sense light, Heitman said, and have neither of the conserved...

Disease diagnosis, biodefense among UH chemical research projects

...es on the preparation of nanometer-sized arrays of sensor molecules that are relevant to early-stage disease diagnosis, when treatment is still an option. Cai also is an author on four other papers that will be presented at the ACS meeting. # Dar-Chone Chow, assistant professor of chemistry, will discuss "...

Duke engineers develop new 3-D cardiac imaging probe

...d array of 504 individual ultrasound sensors. Each sensor is as wide as a few human hairs. "It took a craftsman to create this probe," said Smith. "Not many graduate students could have done what Chris Pua has done." "Maintaining the size of normal TE probes was a main factor in the design since 3-D imagin...

...h be easily seen, however, using the Hyperion EO-1 sensor data. Our hope is that these studies will allow us to better monitor forest fire from space and, eventually, to determine which forests are most susceptible to fire during the dry season."

MERIS monitoring tracks planetary photosynthesis levels

...ly multispectral observations from Envisat's MERIS sensor are being combined with a sophisticated processing algorithm and powerful Grid computing to reveal global photosynthesis activity on land. This permits researchers to trace the state of health of terrestrial plant cover, identifying areas under stres...

Researchers Create DNA-Based Sensors for Nano-Tongues and Nano-Noses

Student scientists create living bacterial photographs

...ll surface. They hooked the light receptor up to a sensor in E. coli that normally senses salt concentration. Instead of sensing salt, the bacteria could sense light. The light receptor was then connected to a system in the bacteria that makes pigments. When light strikes the new receptor, it turns off a g...

NRL scientists detect 'milky sea' phenomena

...n. To achieve nighttime detection, the OLS uses a sensor capable of registering extremely low levels of visible light. This system has been used to detect terrestrial and atmospheric emission sources such as fires, lightning, and human activity (city lights, fishing boats, etc.) around the world. However, ...

Inspection by an electron microscope showed that the mutants' magnetosome crystals did not build a perfectly organised linear chain -- as the wild type's did...

Health of coral reefs detected from orbit

Australian researchers have found Envisat's MERIS sensor can detect coral bleaching down to ten metres deep. This means Envisat could potentially monitor impacted coral reefs worldwide on a twice-weekly basis. Coral bleaching happens when symbiotic algae living in symbiosis with living coral polyps (and p...
