New project aims to make large-scale lobster farms feasible
...raising juveniles; and to begin raising lobster in troughs
on land. Work to develop a lobster feed that could ultimately be marketed to a lobster aquaculture industry is running concurrently at Harbor Branch. ...
Computer models aid understanding of antibody-dependent enhancement in spread of dengue fever
...hancement results in larger booms, but also deeper troughs
in incidence, which lead to extinction. Although the computer models were specifically developed for dengue, the researchers believe the results could apply to any disease in which partial immunity increases pathogen replication rates. "Experimenta...
GROWing the next generation of water recycling plants
...nterconnected horizontal troughs. Planted in these troughs
are rows of specially chosen plants that gently cleanse the grey water. Trickling through the GROW framework, the plants' roots naturally take up the dissolved pollutants, leaving 'green water'. Green water is not drinkable and will be dyed with a ve...
Scientists map key landmarks in human genome
...graph, the data displayed as a series of peaks and troughs
corresponding to positioned nucleosomes and nucleosome-free regions, respectively. Analysis revealed that promoters of genes that had similar expression status (they were all "off" or "on") had related nucleosome locations. The technique successfully...
Nanotechnology meets biology and DNA finds its groove
...ingle DNA molecules and position them in nanoscale troughs
or "slits," where they can be easily analyzed and sequenced. The technique, which according to its developers is simple and scalable, could lead to faster and vastly more efficient sequencing technology in the lab, and may one day help underpin th...
