Network analysis reveals true connections

Researchers have developed a universal method that can accurately analyse a range of complex networks -- including social networks, protein-protein interactions and air transportation networks.

Pharmacology: Ramoplanin reveals promising mechanism

Researchers have identified how a antibiotic known as Ramoplanin A2 can kill pathogenic bacteria by interrupting how they form their cell membranes.

Biotechnology reveals protein regulates movement of mitochondria in brain cells

Scientists have identified a protein in the brain that plays a key role in the function of mitochondria - the part of the cell that supplies energy, supports cellular activity, and potentially wards off threats from disease.

CT reveals hidden face in Nefertiti bust

Using CT imaging to study a priceless bust of Nefertiti, researchers have uncovered a delicately carved face in the limestone inner core and gained new insights into methods used to create the ancient masterpiece.

Enforcement exercise reveals issues with irradiated food supplements

On 7th June 2002, the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) published the results of a survey which found that a wide range of food supplements sold in the country were irradiated in breach of food regulations.

Imaging technology reveals the complexity of biomarkers

Dr Ronald Koop looks at an ultra high content analysis technology that has the capability to provide combinatorial, cell-based biomarkers.

Study reveals tomatoes are the key to a healthy heart

A new study has revealed that the carotenoid, lycopene, which is found in tomatoes can help reduce the risk of heart attacks by boosting blood flow and artery health.

Discovery of molecular pathway of Alzheimer's disease reveals new drug targets

The discovery of the molecular pathway that drives the changes seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients is reported today, revealing new targets for drug discovery that could be exploited to combat the disease.

Gene expression reveals how potatoes are cultivated

Organically grown potatoes have a higher gene expression of starch production than conventional ones. This statement is put forward by RIKILT, part of Wageningen UR, researcher Jeroen van Dijk, who can tell organically grown potatoes from conventional ones by measuring the RNA in the plant cells.

Brain network reveals disorders

Researchers at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich identify a new method of unerringly detecting the presence of pathophysiological changes in the brain.

Study reveals how ancient viruses became genomic ‘superspreaders’

Scientists have uncovered clues as to how our genomes became riddled with viruses. The study, supported by the Wellcome Trust, reveals important information about the so–called ‘dark matter’ of our genome.
