Proteins can communicate through DNA, conducting a long-distance dialog that serves as a kind of genetic "switch," according to Weizmann Institute of Science researchers. They found that the binding of proteins to one site ...

Genetics influences physical fitness of tilapia

Wageningen University & Research scientists have demonstrated that genes influence swimming fitness of tilapia. As there are indications that fitter fish are also healthier and more resilient, the researchers recommend including ...

Soot from heaters and traffic is not just a local problem

Soot particles from oil and wood heating systems, as well as road traffic, can pollute the air in Europe on a much larger scale than previously assumed. This is what researchers from the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric ...
