New research from the University of Adelaide suggests monitoring ecosystems that appear to be stable is more effective than fixing them once they have collapsed.
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered that males of the laboratory roundworm secrete signaling molecules that significantly shorten the lifespan of the opposite sex.
(Phys.org) —For the first time the complex interplay between bacterial investment strategies and their outcomes has been recreated and analysed by researchers at the University of Sydney and University of Exeter.
Under environmental stresses such as drought and salinity, plants may experience restricted growth and productivity—stress responses that are mediated by complex molecular signaling networks. An international team of researchers ...
(Phys.org) —Look what might help us live longer—worms! Researchers at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research (BTI) and Cornell have shown that roundworms can live up to 20 percent longer when bathed in their ...
A hidden genetic code: Researchers identify key differences in seemingly synonymous parts of the structure
Harvard scientists say they've solved a mystery that's nearly as old as science's understanding of the genetic code.
After a 30-year search, scientists have uncovered how an enzyme critical to plants' rapid immune response against microbes is activated.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Ever since Charles Darwin proposed his theory of evolution in 1859, scientists have wondered whether evolutionary adaptations can be reversed.
Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have discovered a key genetic switch by which plants control their response to ethylene gas, a natural plant hormone best known for its ability to ripen fruit, but which, ...
Researchers from The University of Western Australia's Institute of Agriculture are conducting the world's largest chickpea experiment on drought resistance.
