European biodiversity and ecosystem scientists merge and gear up for long-term research

Measures to tackle the human impact on biodiversity require long term research and collaboration between many countries working with common goals and frameworks. This emerged from a recent workshop organised by the European Science Foundation (ESF), which moved towards establishing an ESF Research...

Jet-propelled imaging for an ultrafast light source

...the beam from the sample; the second step is constructing the image by interpreting and combining the data from the diffracted x-rays. In order to merge the different views (projections) of an object, which is subsequently vaporized in this "diffract-and-destroy" mode, it is important that they all be ...

Gene decides whether coral relative will fuse or fight

... When coral colonies meet one another on the reef, they have two options: merge into a single colony or reject each other and aggressively compete for space. Now, a report in the March 19th Current Biology , a Cell Press publicat...

British scientists go cloud-hopping in the Pacific to improve climate predictions

...limate models do not represent them very well. This campaign is a fantastic opportunity to make cutting-edge measurements in a unique environment and merge them with state-of-the-art climate models. By working closely with the Met Office and international colleagues in this way, we hope to finally hit so...

TGen investigators devise faster, cheaper way of analyzing the human genome

These so-called "scaffolds" are a treasure trove for a diverse group of scientists, who try to squeeze as much in...

Tiny airborne particles are a major cause of climate change

...round which water vapor in the air condenses, forming tiny water droplets that rise as they release heat. As the small droplets rise, they collide and merge with larger droplets. When the droplets reach a critical size, gravity takes over, causing them to fall from the cloud in the form of rain. One of...

Dangerous tricksters: Some bacterie use immune cells to reproduce

...macrophage's offensive weaponry is concentrated: the phagosome is flooded with oxygen radicals and acid. Another kind of membrane bags, the lysosomes, merge with the phagosome and confront the microbe with highly reactive digestive enzymes. A few hours after the first alarm bells have rung there is nothing...

Research casts doubt on circulating stem cells

The physiologist concludes, "Although the cells do merge with the defective muscle, we suspect that they remain silent and cannot set off the hoped-for 'muscle programme'." In other words, the bone marrow-de...
