Newly recognized gene mutation may reduce seeds, resurrect plants

...t Environmental Stress Physiology. "When I went to throw it away, I noticed it had small shoots coming up as if it had returned to life."

Pitman (co-first author), Jermaine J. McGill and Kevin P. Keegan, all from Northwestern University. ...

Ghost protein leaves fresh tracks in the cell

...Dubreuil reworked his hypothesis. "We decided to throw out our assumptions and start fresh," he said. A laboratory fly was genetically engineered so that spectrin could no longer bind to ankyrin -- which, Dubreuil assumed, meant that spectrin should no longer attach to the membrane. "We thought that ...

On the golf tee or pitcher's mound, brain dooms motion to inconsistency

A potential application of the research, Shenoy says, could come in future efforts to achieve new kinds of computing by building artificial circuits modeled on the brain. But Shenoy says the research simply set out to explain variabilit...

New dyslexia theory blames 'noise'

...uggles to read because even small distractions can throw it off, according to a new model of dyslexia emerging from a group of recent studies. The studies contradict an influential, 30-year-old theory that blamed dyslexia on a neural deficit in processing the fast sounds of language. Instead, the studi...
