Man and mouse share genome structures

...rs of development. "In most of the genome, we see short stretches associated with activated histones," Bernstein said. "However, in the HOX regions, we see huge stretches of genome, many thousands of base pairs in length, that are completely covered by tags." The researchers speculate that these unique ch...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...as though iron, an essential nutrient, still is in short supply. Why this happens is unclear, but the answer could be that iron sets off a kind of chemical warfare in the marine ecosystem, according to University of Maine oceanographer Mark Wells. And diatoms may not always come out on top. In collaborati...

The pulse’s very short length makes the photons in thelaser concentrate in one area, delivering a lot of power to a tiny,specific volume without damaging surrounding tissue.?Once cut, the axons vaporized, and no other tissue was harmed.To assure the axons were actually cut...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

"We will have to do more tests to see what compounds are formed." Ferrieri believes there may be an increase in compounds...

Study: Soap And Water Work Best In Ridding Hands Of Disease Viruses

...wipes," he said. "Our study also showed that, at a short exposure time of 10 seconds, all agents with the exception of handwipes demonstrated a 90 percent reduction of bacteria on the hands." Alcohol-based handrubs were generally ineffective in demonstrating a significant reduction of a relatively resista...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers

...n it closes the system, it does so for only a very short time. In a stream of air with high oxygen on the other hand, the respiratory system opens briefly and then closes firmly for a long time. "In other words, insects are actively keeping oxygen out and doing it in a way that shows they know how to measu...

New RNA polymerase discovered in plants

Sexual cooperation: Mating increases longevity in ant queens

Sexual offspring are only produced after several months or years of colony growth, during which a sterile worker force is built up in the population. The fact...
