Crawling the Web: Pain pathways

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we turn to...

Searching for a sleeping gene

Researchers have discovered an actual gene in fruit flies that controls their sleep patterns. Does the same hold true for humans?

Oestrogen improves memory

Oestrogen not only sharpens mental performance in women with certain conditions, but recharging oestrogen receptors in the brain may also sharpen cognition.

Crawling the Web: NMF and genomics

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we turn to nonnegative matrix factorisation.

Evolution Canyon reveals bacterial adaptation

Bacteria living on opposite sides of a canyon have evolved to cope with different temperatures by altering the make-up of their 'skin', or cell membranes.

Fighting typhoid fever

Scientists have set their sites on typhoid fever and are now using next-generation DNA sequencing technology improve diagnosis, track disease spread and possibly design vaccines.

Protein stimulates T-cell production

A protein called Wnt4 has been shown to stimulate the production of T-cells, a finding the may help combat age-related declines in immune response.

No gene, no sex

The deletion of a single gene that codes for an odour receptor in male fruit flies can lead to a complete inability to mate.

Crawling the Web: Environmental genes

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we look take an extended look at how genes and the environment interact.

Another HIV trick

Genetic recombination during HIV replication often results in two viral strains exchanging genetic information and creating a third, recombinant strain for the virus.

Once a suspect, now a friend

HMGB1, a chromosomal protein that binds to damaged DNA, prevents cancer development by enhancing DNA repair, recent reports suggest.

Rare mutant cells seen

MIT biological engineers have developed a new imaging system that allows them to see cells that have undergone a specific mutation.

Crawling the Web: HIV/SIV infection

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we look take an extended look at genome rearrangement and HIV/SIV infection.

Mouse protein linked to human disease

A protein found in dark-skinned mice has been shown to possibly play a role in tumour suppression and may help treat bone marrow failure in humans.

Antibiotic aided RNAi

Researchers have learned than fluoroquinolones enhances RNA interference in the laboratory and reduces potential side effects.

Crawling the Web: Protein interactions

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we look take an extended look at protein-protein interaction networks.

Allergies, asthma tied to cell

NYU research shows that Foxp3-directed regulatory T cells (Treg) are produced in the mucosal tissue and remain there to prevent allergic reactions.

Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder linked

A new study sought to analyse the patterns of gene expression in the brains of individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorders.

HIV trial hits snag

The National Institute of Allergy and infections Diseases announced that it will not conduct the HIV vaccine study known as PAVE 100.

Lending a hand

Scientists have compiled guidelines to help other researchers design, develop, and manage next-generation databases of biological parts.
