Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...r aggregations. They studied the sinking rate, the slow process through which aggregations of diatoms sink into the deep sea, 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 w...

Recent breakthroughs in common adult leukemia highlighted in New England Journal of Medicine

...mature white blood cells that didn't die, with the slow rise in leukemia cell count seen in patients due to an accumulation of these immature and incompetent white blood cells. Scientists have since discovered that CLL cells do indeed turn over, with the accumulation over time a result of the difference i...

New Technique for Tracking Gene Regulators

...their original positions on the genome,but it is a slow and somewhat expensive process. Other methods, such asmatching the pieces to their compliments on microarrays, are limited bythe size of genome they can analyze.Dunn’s team has come up with a technique to determine the positions ofthese 500-to-1,500-...

Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

...ne therapy with let-7 may be a way to alleviate or slow it down." This work arose from Slack's basic research in the department of molecular, cellular and developmental biology on the nematode round worms, C. elegans. He found that these worms require let-7 RNA for normal development to occur. Without it...
