Protecting Crops from Radiation-contaminated Soil

21 hours ago − RIKEN
Almost four years after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan, farmland remains contaminated with higher-than-natural levels of radiocesium in some regions of Japan, with cesium-134 and cesium-137 being the most troublesome because of the slow rate at which they decay. In a study published in Scientific Reports, a group at the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science in Japan led by Ryoung Shin has…

Activating Genes on Demand

21 hours ago − Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard
(BOSTON) - When it comes to gene expression - the process by which our DNA provides the recipe used to direct the synthesis of proteins and other molecules that we need for development and survival - scientists have so far studied one single gene at a time. A new approach developed by Harvard geneticist George Church, Ph.D., can help uncover how tandem gene circuits dictate life processes, such as…

Manipulating Cells' Shapes Could Treat Breast Cancer

Yesterday − Institute of Cancer Research
Changing the shape of breast cancer cells could make the disease more sensitive to treatments - even driving the body's own inflammatory response against a tumour - a new study shows. Scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, showed that the shape of a tumour cell is an important factor in determining its response to inflammatory molecules, which can either promote or inhibit cancer progression. …

In the City, Rabbits Build More Densely

15 days ago − Goethe University Frankfurt
FRANKFURT. European wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) not only achieve high population densities in the city, their burrows are also built more densely and on a smaller external scale. That is something researchers in the Goethe University's Task Force on Ecology and Evolution have discovered in their study on wild rabbit populations in and around Frankfurt. As they report in the advance version of the Journal of Zoology, small burrow…
