Lending a hand

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

Active, sedentary behaviour genetic

Recent mouse model studies indicate that genetics may play a role in influencing whether an animal exhibits active or sedentary behaviour.

Crawling the Web: Open Access

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

Innate HIV resistance genetic

The simultaneous expression of certain versions of two specific genes called KIR3DL1 and HLA-B*57 is thought to be at the root of some cases of this innate resistance to HIV infection.

Gene signatures for scleroderma

Distinct genetic profiles can discern different groups of patients with scleroderma, a vexing autoimmune disease in which the body turns against itself.

Common genetic history

Researchers have established an identical mechanism of genetic imprinting, a process involved in marsupial and human foetal development,...

Tumour-inhibiting protein

A tumour-inhibiting protein called angiocidin may play a role in a new leukaemia treatment, according to Temple University researchers.

Cellular decision on the computer

Scientists have simulated how cells decide whether or not to migrate and were able to predict the molecular targets within a cell that needs to be targeted for the process to occur.

Genetic packaging patterns

A team of researchers identified 39 histone modifications, including a "core set" of 17 modifications that tended to occur together and were associated with genes observed to be active.

Crawling the Web: Dengue Fever

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 Dengue Fever.

Microbes to the rescue

Scientist believe microorganisms' ability to grow from an almost infinite number of food sources may hold the key to solving society's current energy crisis.

Diabetes harms male fertility

Contrary to prevailing theories, recent research indicates that diabetes in men directly affects fertility with excess sugars harming sperm quality.

Sea toxin damages DNA

Aerosol sprays from red tides have been shown to possess algal toxins that attacks and damages DNA in the lungs when the body tries to dispose of the poison.

Select sperm carefully

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), where a single sperm is injected into an egg to fertilise it, is increasingly used to help infertile men father children.

Turning to a tomato cure

Scientists are exploring whether tomatoes can be utilised as suitable carriers for oral vaccinations against Alzheimer's disease. Do their...

Crawling the Web: HIV and RNAi

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 HIV replication and RNA-interference.

Revising RNA regulation targets

Research indicates that, contrary to established theories of replication, RNA can interact with promoter regions preceding the coding...

Dako DuoCISHTM

Genetic information obtained by the FISH technique can now be viewed and interpreted using a bright field microscopy bringing molecular pathology into anatomic pathology laboratories.

Crawling the Web: Breast differentiation

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 breast differentiation.

New antibiotic in development

A new drug targets the gene that promotes antibiotic resistance in bacteria, a finding that holds potential in treating deadly strains like MRSA.
