These findings, published in theJanuary edition of Journal of Clinical Investigation, will help doctorsto understand the mechanisms by which the l...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

...d and fled to higher ground before the devastating wave struck, thus saving their own lives and those of the tourists riding on their backs. Because earthquakes and tsunamis generate low-frequency waves, O'Connell-Rodwell and other elephant experts have begun to explore the possibility that the Thai eleph...

Protein helps regulate the genes of embryonic stem cells

...research offers an important contribution to a new wave of thinking in genetics: that not all human disease states are due to alterations in DNA sequence.

The mussel protein is a superior adhesive, but not readily available. In trying to identify a protein that could be adapted for this purpose, Li had another inspir...

Tamoxifen-like drug suggests new ways to selectively block estrogen

New law for resolution allows unprecedented sharpness in fluorescence microscopy

...ving cells non-invasively. However, because of the wave nature of light, focused light is subject to diffraction. As early as 1873, Ernst Abbe recognized that this fact imposes an absolute limit on resolution in microscopy. Abbe, whose 100th year death anniversary was in February, captured this limit in a...
