November 11, 2015 2:57 pm | by Wageningen University | News | Comments

It is possible to make metabolite maps of living plant tissues both quickly and accurately by using laser ablation electrospray ionization mass spectrometry imaging.

Method IDs Up to Twice as Many Proteins, Peptides in MS Data

November 11, 2015 2:50 pm | by UCSD | News | Comments

An international team of researchers developed a method that identifies up to twice as many proteins and peptides in mass spectrometry data than conventional approaches. The method can be applied to a range of fields.


Eight-carat Diamond Smashed in the Name of Science

November 11, 2015 2:39 pm | by University of Melbourne | News | Comments

At the University of Melbourne, a rare, eight-carat diamond has been smashed to smithereens in a bid to discover the secrets of its origin and a potential "mother lode" of diamonds.

Spectrometer Development Inspires New Camera for Lowlight Photography

October 29, 2015 2:55 pm | by University of Utah | News | Comments

A researcher has developed a new camera color filter that lets in three times more light than conventional filters, resulting in much cleaner, more accurate pictures taken in lowlight. The new filter can be used for any kind of digital camera.

Fruit Fly Pheromone Flags Great Real Estate for Starting a Family

October 29, 2015 2:45 pm | by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine | News | Comments

In what they say was a lucky and unexpected finding, researchers at Johns Hopkins say they’ve discovered that male fruit flies lay down an odorant, or pheromone, that not only attracts females to lay eggs nearby, but also guides males and females searching for food. 

Wastewater Treatment Plants Fail to Eliminate New Chemical Compounds

October 29, 2015 2:35 pm | by University of the Basque Country | News | Comments

A new study indicates that the most polluted waters, the ones with the highest levels of bioconcentration, the highest percentage of intersex fish, etc., exist around wastewater treatment plants. Most of these plants are not equipped to eliminate compounds, because legislation in this matter has yet to catch up with the development of the chemical industry.
