However the technical and ethicaldifficulties in obtaining sufficient and appropriate donor fetal braintissue have limited the application of this therapy.These researchers previously demonstrated that mouse embryonic stemcells can differentiate into neurons when cultured...

Ecological destruction fuels emerging diseases

... the prospect of cataloguing them poses a daunting technical challenge. Since the physical characteristics of many parasites are very similar, Dr. Brooks and his colleagues are using the latest molecular taxonomy tools to classify parasites based on genetic characteristics. "These things are evolutionary acci...

The transparent organism: EMBLEM and Carl Zeiss give labs a unique look at life

... that with unprecedented quality." In a series of technical innovations, Stelzer and his colleagues (in particular Jim Swoger and Jan Huisken) have made it possible to make three-dimensional films of the inner workings of living organisms at a much higher level of detail than ever before. One innovation of S...

Scientists collaborate to assess health of global environment

...n September, the assessment team will release five technical reports totaling nearly 2,500 pages and focusing on the ties between ecosystems and human well-being. A set of 33 case studies, termed sub-global assessments, also will be released in late 2005 or early 2006. Each case study will focus on a particula...

Scientists rid stem cell culture of key animal cells

Tackling a pressing and controversial technical barrier in stem cell biology, scientists at the WiCell Research Institute and the University of Wisconsin-Madison have crafted a recipe that allows researchers to grow human embryonic stem cells in the absence of mouse-derived "feeder" cells, long th...
