Biologists Shed New Light on an Old Question

Dec. 12, 2018 — For nearly 100 years biologists have argued about how exactly natural selection can possibly work. If nature selects the individuals with the best genes then why aren't all organisms the same? ... read more

Dec. 12, 2018 — Plant biologists have discovered a way to make crop plants replicate through seeds as clones. The discovery, long sought by plant breeders and geneticists, could make it easier to propagate ... read more

Researchers Reverse Engineer Way Pine Trees Produce Green Chemicals Worth Billions

Dec. 12, 2018 — Researchers have reverse engineered the way a pine tree produces a resin, which could serve as an environmentally friendly alternative to a range of fossil-fuel based products worth billions of ... read more

Dec. 11, 2018 — Researchers have genetically transformed the Common Primrose (Primula vulgaris) for the first time in a development that could shed light on one of the plant world's most renowned reproductive ... read more

Dec. 11, 2018 — Chemistry professors used the Google algorithm PageRank to identify key amino acids in the regulation of a bacterial enzyme essential for most ... read more

New Light on Blocking Shiga and Ricin Toxins -- And on an Iconic Biological Process

Dec. 10, 2018 — Researchers, setting their sights on Shiga toxin (player in the current E. coli outbreak from romaine lettuce) and ricin (a bioterrorism agent), have now identified potential protective strategies. ... read more

Bacterial 'Sleeper Cells' Evade Antibiotics and Weaken Defence Against Infection

Dec. 7, 2018 — New research unravels how so-called bacterial persister cells manipulate our immune cells, potentially opening new avenues to finding ways of clearing these bacterial cells from the body, and ... read more

Dec. 7, 2018 — The plant hormone jasmonic acid also performs a function that was previously unknown. It ensures that the leaf pores close when leaves are injured. For the plant, this could be an emergency ... read more

Engineers Repurpose Wasp Venom as an Antibiotic Drug

Dec. 7, 2018 — Engineers have repurposed wasp venom as an antibiotic drug that's nontoxic to human ... read more

Small Molecules Come Into Focus

Dec. 5, 2018 — Many biologically important small molecules, like hormones and amino acids, are too small to be measured by conventional detection methods. Researchers have created a new type of immuno-assay that is ... read more

Dec. 7, 2018 — Nature is so complex that natural molecules used for i.e. cancer treatment still can't be produced by chemical synthesis. Today, major chemical and pharmaceutical companies harvest large amounts ... read more

What Can a Snowflake Teach Us About How Cancer Spreads in the Body?

Dec. 6, 2018 — What can seashells, lightning and the coastline of Britain teach us about new drugs for cancer? The answer, according to a team of researchers, may revolve around fractals, the infinitely complex ... read more

Dec. 5, 2018 — Using a mouse model of influenza and experiments that included parabiosis, researchers definitively showed that lung-resident memory B cells establish themselves in the lung soon after influenza ... read more

Dec. 5, 2018 — Botryllus schlosseri, a marine invertebrate that lives in underwater colonies resembling fuzzy pinheads clinging to rocks, has a blood-forming system with uncanny similarities to that of humans, ... read more

Dec. 5, 2018 — Researchers report new findings of an experimental evolutionary project that ran for 30 years on the genomic mechanisms of sex determination in swordtail ... read more

Tuberculosis Survives by Using Host System Against Itself, Study Finds

Dec. 5, 2018 — Scientists have advanced our understanding of how ancient animals saw the world by combining the study of fossils and ... read more

A Bacterial Protein Is Found to Promote Cancer

Dec. 4, 2018 — Researchers have discovered that DnaK, a protein of the bacterium mycoplasma, interferes with the mycoplasma-infected cell's ability to respond to and repair DNA damage, a known origin of ... read more

Inactivating Genes Can Boost Crop Genetic Diversity

Dec. 4, 2018 — Researchers recently showed that inactivating a gene, RECQ4, leads to a three-fold increase in recombination in crops such as rice, pea and tomato. The discovery could speed up plant breeding and ... read more

Novel Approach Improves Understanding of the Formation of New Neurons in the Mammalian Adult Brain

Dec. 4, 2018 — A team of researchers has developed a powerful new approach to understand the formation of new neurons in the mammalian adult ... read more
