Understanding what happens to a soybean root hair system infected by symbiotic, nitrogen-fixing soil bacteria could go a long way toward using this symbiosis to redesign plants and improve crop yields, benefitting both food and biofuel production.
A series of rapid environmental changes in East Africa roughly 2 million years ago may be responsible for driving human evolution. The researchers- including Gail Ashley, professor of earth and planetary sciences, Rutgers Univ.- examined lake sediments from Olduvai Gorge in northern Tanzania.
Two unique chemical probes designed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are helping scientists find how a pathogenic organism responsible for a severe lung infection thrives in human serum. These probes use multiplexed activity-based protein profiling (ABPP).
