Small, self-controlled planes combine plant pathology and engineering

...r been cultured before. Some of these microbes may thrive only in the atmosphere, and many of them may be new to science.” This and other fascinating results have led Schmale to hypothesize that some airborne microorganisms have “novel biochemical processes for interacting with each other as a community ...

In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

...fide is a metabolic waste product of bacteria that thrive in the oxygen-free mine. Once the sulfide is released into the watery environment, it readily combines with metals, in this case zinc, to form nano-sized biominerals that measure about one-billionth of a meter in diameter. The team examined the bi...

UBC researchers reveal dwarf aquatic plants' hidden ancestry

... Native to Australia, New Zealand and India, they thrive in seasonal freshwater pools and swamps, and may blossom underwater at depths of up to one metre, or as the pools dry out.
