A buffet for early human relatives

... says. The laser was used to remove samples at various points along the length of the tooth, which is marked by tiny ridges called perikymata. They run parallel to the tooth's crown and represent tooth growth, similar to tree rings. Perikymata are produced under the gums during the animal's juvenile year...

To slow AIDS in Russia, treat HIV-positive addicts, Stanford study says

... The researchers also looked at the expense of the various treatment strategies, which had an estimated cost between $9.4 and $11.2 billion over 20 years. Giving medication only to non-drug users was not the most expensive approach, but it prevented the fewest new infections, according to the study. Trea...

Elusive rust resistance genes located

...O Plant Industry scientist, Dr Evans Lagudah, says various types of rust resistance have been bred into Australian varieties but work against a specific rust species and in some cases are only effective against a limited range of rust strains. "We have identified a ‘DNA marker?that is 99 per cent effecti...

Mysterious 'neural noise' actually primes brain for peak performance

...Bayes optimal,' meaning we are excellent at taking various bits of probability information, weighing their relative worth, and coming to a good conclusion quickly," says Pouget. "But we've always been at a loss to explain how our brains are able to conduct such complex Bayesian computations so easily." Two...

They are usually just a few nanometers across and up to several micrometers in length. The researchers built up layers of their SWNTs to produce ...

Mapping the mouse genome

...colleagues then investigate recombination rates of various genes by comparing physical and genetic distances for each strain. On average, the recombination rate was 0.63 cM per megabase (cM/Mb) for HS, and 0.62 cM/Mb for RI. They also saw a lot of variation in recombination rate across the genome, between th...

Nanoscale microscope sheds first light on gene repair
