Whitworth asks non-scientific terms like cardigan, sandwich, sideburns, diesel or chauvinism – we would do away with those as well? – Head to Head: Should eponym be abandoned?

Eponyms are here to stay culture – it deeply rooted in our culture – it ‘s not realistic to get rid of, she writes. If we decide in medicine get rid of them in medicine, the same in other areas in other areas of science? Would such concepts as Avagadro number, Boyle law, the joule, the Kelvin, Hertz also disappear? Read the rest of this entry »

Pink footed and greylag geese.

Scott and colleagues from UBC and the University of Birmingham in the UK compared the physiology of bar-headed geese low altitude waterfowl such as barnacle, pink – footed and greylag geese. Cell membrane, thuss: Their results are published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. – ‘We found approximately six to 10 % more aerobic muscle fibers in bar-headed geese low altitude birds in comparison,’says Scott. ‘There were more capillaries – the body’s smallest blood vessels. Around these fibers in bar-headed geese ‘ The team also found that the bar-headed goose, the mitochondria – the cell power sources – is closer to the cell membrane, thus distributed closer to capillaries.

are performed These features allow oxygen and spread better on the flight muscles, says Scott. Since these physical characteristics inherent in bar-headed geese that are bred in captivity and have never yet flown, the researchers believe they have over time, specifically in order to survive, develop and perform at high altitudes.

Viruses that relatively low relatively low genetic code is an ideal target for this novel approach.

‘While our experiments were performed on yeast cells, can be arbitrarily fast growing cells such as cancer cells be genetically manipulated such as cancer cells, viruses or bacteria are used.. Viruses that relatively low relatively low genetic code is an ideal target for this novel approach. For example, with this new technique, an entire viral genome can be systematically screened for their likelihood to develop resistance to drug therapies. By insertion the drug into the test tube with all sorts of mutations, scientists can systematically identify all individual viral mutations increase resistance. Moment resistance screening techniques are less effective because they on testing random mutations leave leaving the possibility that a mutation unchecked Systematic resistance.

Inspired by human genome sequencing project, Bolon and to analyze to analyze a method called empirical hundreds of different mutations in a single test tube. Commonly read read a DNA sequence over an entire genome, Bolon used this patch include the ability to accurately size sequencing chip and record the abundance of several hundreds of cells in a test tube, mutations. Individual mutations. In the simplest case, mutations that are useful will grow rapidly and in abundance, while mutations that are harmful will decrease in relative abundance.
