Research provides insights into how molecular adaptations can lead to differential circadian timing

Research provides insights into how molecular adaptations can lead to differential circadian timing

The non-biting marine midge Clunio marinus lives along Europe's tide-shapen coasts, where precise timing is of existential importance: Reproduction and oviposition must occur when the tide is at its lowest. [More]
Study finds no link between shape and mobility of bacteria

Study finds no link between shape and mobility of bacteria

The shape of bacteria does not influence how well they can move -- this is the surprising finding of new research which could have major implications for the future of the scientific and medical industries. [More]

NPS MedicineWise urges Australians to handle antibiotics with care

NPS MedicineWise urges Australians to handle antibiotics with care

This Antibiotic Awareness Week (14-20 November), Australians are being urged to handle antibiotics with careā€”not just because of the threat of antibiotic resistance, but because their use can also result in significant side effects. [More]
Male brains appear to consume more energy than women when multitasking

Male brains appear to consume more energy than women when multitasking

It has long been known to science that women find it easier than men to multitask and switch between tasks. [More]
NIH researchers identify antibody that potently neutralizes 98% of HIV strains

NIH researchers identify antibody that potently neutralizes 98% of HIV strains

Scientists from the National Institutes of Health have identified an antibody from an HIV-infected person that potently neutralized 98 percent of HIV isolates tested, including 16 of 20 strains resistant to other antibodies of the same class. [More]

Genetically engineered bacteria designed with thermostat controls may help treat diseases

A new helper in the fight against cancer and other diseases of the gut may be genetically altered bacteria that release medicines to tumors or the gut. [More]
Scientists discover important link between immune system, gut bacteria and glucose metabolism

Scientists discover important link between immune system, gut bacteria and glucose metabolism

Researchers at Oregon State University and other institutions have discovered an important link between the immune system, gut bacteria and glucose metabolism -- a "cross-talk" and interaction that can lead to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome when not functioning correctly. [More]

Bone gene in mammals may take additional role to promote cognition in humans

Bone gene in mammals may take additional role to promote cognition in humans

A gene that regulates bone growth and muscle metabolism in mammals may take on an additional role as a promoter of brain maturation, cognition and learning in human and nonhuman prim ates, according to a new study led by neurobiologists at Harvard Medical School. [More]

Study supports idea that humans have heightened visual awareness of snakes

Some studies have suggested that the visual systems of humans and other primates are finely tuned to identify dangerous creatures such as snakes and spiders. This is understandable because, among our ancestors, those who were more able to see and avoid these animals would have been more likely to pass on their genes to the next generation. [More]
Research shows new role for plasmids in antibiotic resistance

Research shows new role for plasmids in antibiotic resistance

A new study led by scientists at the University of Oxford has found that small DNA molecules known as plasmids are one of the key culprits in spreading the major global health threat of antibiotic resistance. [More]
