... individual whales. He was amazed at their genetic variation ?an indicator of the past size of their population. Piecing together their ancient family trees, he has discovered that the Antarctic population of minke whales is now the longest surviving whale population on earth. It was also once the largest—many...

World's largest rainforest drying experiment completes first phase

...orest responses to the "umbrellas" from the normal variation in tree growth, tree death, leaf production, and other aspects of forest behavior, researchers compared this dry plot of forest with a similar plot, from which rainfall was not excluded. These two forest plots were compared for a year prior to instal...

Discovery Promises Simpler Therapy for Sickle Cell Disease

...on characteristic of sickle cell disease, and that variation in symptom severity among patients may be explained, in part, by variable deficiency in the processing of nitric oxide," Stamler said. In light of the discovery, the researchers call for a re-evaluation of the role that nitric oxide may play in othe...

Finley-Jones and Wagner expect that the variation found in their testing and the potential presence of toxic metals will encourage regulators to begin monitoring the tattoo ink industry more closely. There are other problems with unknown compositions of tattoo inks. For example, surgery to remove t...

Bioelectronic ‘signatures?hold key to DNA mutations

...unearthing the mysteries behind individual genetic variation and diseases like cancer are fine differences ?single nucleotide polymorphisms, or “SNPs??buried within the 3 billion chemical bases of DNA comprising the human genome. Not every SNP found will necessarily cause a mutation or determine our eye or hai...

Brain Scans Reveal How Gene May Boost Schizophrenia Risk

...other of two common versions of the gene. "A tiny variation in the gene that makes the enzyme that breaks down dopamine causes a complete flipflop ?not a mere difference in degree ?in dopamine activity in these two brain areas," explained NIMH's Dr. Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg, who, along with Dr. Karen Berman a...

Maine Researchers Find Exceptions to Old Rules of Genetic Inheritance

...e map could allow researchers to look for a single variation in the complex genetic code and know all the variations associated with it, since all are part of the same haplotype. The Maine research group challenges that proposal, demonstrating that genes within a haplotype function independently. The group in...
