A new mathematical approach for analyzing the complex, subtle patterns of natural mutation in DNA is likely to help biologists understand how mutation contributes to evolutionary change in mammals.The researchers, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Philip Green and his student Dick Hwang, published a report describing the first applications of
Harmful contaminants often taint drinking water drawn directly from a river, but a low-cost natural filter may lie just beyond the banks. Johns Hopkins researchers have found that the soil alongside a river can remove dangerous microbes and organic material as water flows through it
White blood cells are principal players in immune system function. Yet efforts to influence their role in illness have been hampered by a lack of understanding of the surface structure of these mediator cells until now
Thermo Electron Corporation has completed the acquisition of InnaPhase Corporation, a premier supplier of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets, for approximately $65 million in cash, subject to a post-closing adjustment. Headquartered in
The New Zealand Supercomputing Centre, launched this week, has already attracted interest from potential clients in New York, says Telecom hosting and storage manager Eric Pilon.
In an effort to put more science into the largely trial and error building of nanostructures, physicists at the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated new methods for placing what are typically
PlasDIC was developed to overcome the problems of existing differential interference contrast methods when observing living cells grown in plastic dishes.
