Tool Developed for More Accurate Interpretation of Biomedical Research

July 23, 2015 — Investigators have recently achieved great success with a study involving biomedical research on mouse models. The research group recently used tangible examples to demonstrate how the side effects ... read more

July 7, 2015 — In an effort to further the commercial viability of cellulosic ethanol, a team of scientists used the Titan supercomputer to model the interaction of lignin and hemicellulose in the plant cell wall ... read more

June 19, 2015 — A new method of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, termed ultra-superovulation, has been developed by researchers in which ovulation of a very large number of eggs from one female mouse occurs. ... read more

Scientists See a Natural Place for 'Rewilded' Plants in Organic Farming

May 28, 2015 — One key element of organic agriculture is that it rejects unpredictable technologies, such as genetic engineering. But what if adding a gene from undomesticated plants to bring back a natural trait ... read more

May 21, 2015 — A new study finds the toxin in a widely used genetically modified (GM) crop is having little impact on the crop pest corn earworm -- which is consistent with predictions made almost 20 years ago that ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Antimicrobial resistance in bacteria poses a global threat to public health. Common antibiotics are often ineffective in treating infectious diseases because pathogens acquire resistance genes. These ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Pollution from historic mining activities in south west England has led to a reduction in genetic diversity of brown trout according to new research. The findings indicate that human activity can ... read more

May 11, 2015 — The water flea has genetically adapted to climate change. Biologists compared 'resurrected' water fleas -- hatched from 40-year-old eggs -- with more recent specimens to reach this ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Wild-type zebrafish consistently beat out genetically modified Glofish in competition for female mates, an advantage that led to the disappearance of the transgene from the fish population over time, ... read more

May 6, 2015 — By changing mouse genes to block a protein associated with obesity, scientists have prevented fat from forming around the animals' internal organs, even when the animals eat an unhealthy diet. ... read more

May 6, 2015 — A clever combination of two different types of computer simulations enabled a group of researchers to uncover an unexpectedly cooperative group dynamic: the spontaneous emergence of resource sharing ... read more

Apr. 29, 2015 — Recombination, or crossing-over, occurs when sperm and egg cells are formed and segments of each chromosome pair are interchanged. This process plays an crucial role in the maintenance of genetic ... read more

Genetically Modified Crops to Fight Spina Bifida

Apr. 28, 2015 — Genetically modified crops are usually designed to have herbicide tolerance and insect resistance, but there are other applications of such engineered plants, such as the incorporation of genes for ... read more

Apr. 24, 2015 — A team of philosophers and plant biotechnologists have turned to cognitive science to explain why opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) has become so widespread, despite positive ... read more

Apr. 24, 2015 — Researchers have discovered that the signalling route - a cascade activation of several molecules - triggered by the ATM protein regulates DNA repair during the production of spermatocytes by ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Sweet potatoes from all over the world naturally contain genes from the bacterium Agrobacterium, researchers report. Sweet potato is one of the most important food crops for human consumption in the ... read more

Genetic Code of Upland Cotton Cracked

Apr. 20, 2015 — In a groundbreaking achievement, scientists have decoded the intricately woven genetic makeup of Upland cotton for the first time in the ancient plant's history. Upland cotton, which accounts ... read more

Apr. 15, 2015 — Researchers have developed a new way to use plant oils like olive and linseed oil to create polyurethane, a plastic material used in everything from foam insulation panels to tires, hoses and ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — Researchers have produced the first whole-genome sequences of endangered mountain gorillas in the Virunga volcanic mountain range in central Africa. Findings from sequence analysis suggest the ... read more

Mar. 31, 2015 — When it comes to survival of the fittest, it's all about your mother -- at least in the squirrel world. New research shows that adaptive success in squirrels is often hidden in the genes of ... read more
