Physicist cracks women's random but always lucky choice of X chromosome

...ways that allow a "best" choice to be made between things rather than a random one. Now researchers led by University of Warwick physicist Dr Mario Nicodemi have explained how this randomness occurs and why that it is beneficial. This will help understand the problems of a small number of women who unusu...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

Surprising origin of cell's internal highways

...microscopic scaffolding that the cell uses to move things around in order to hold its shape and divide, originated from a tiny structure near the nucleus, called the centrosome. Now, researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center reveal a surprising new origin for these cellular "highways." In the Ju...

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

...e engineered mice were much faster to realize that things were different and work out the new route. Dr. Bibb cautioned that while the mice learn faster, studies on the long-term effects of deleting the enzyme, called Cdk5, from the brain are continuing. The group is also beginning a search for drugs...

"It also can be used for ‘extrapolative?modeling to predict rates of gene transfer in certain cases, mainly environmental science scenarios, but also with relevance t...

Iowa State scientists demonstrate first use of nanotechnology to enter plant cells

...emendous advantage is that you can deliver several things into a plant cell at the same time and release them whenever you want," Torney said. "Until now, you were at nature’s mercy when you delivered a gene into a cell," Lin said. "There’s been no precise control as to whether the cells will actually in...

"So this is a very basic mechanism of communication between the chloroplast and the nucleus. It had been previously suggested that the ...

Deconstructing brain wiring, one neuron at a time

...king down at it; there is no way to figure out how things are connected," Callaway says. "If you were given a wiring diagram, you could begin to understand how the chip moves electricity and how that operates the computer." Neuroscientists also want to deconstruct the flow of electrical signals in the ex...
