Bioreactor device helps frogs regenerate their legs

Scientists havedesigned a device that can induce partial hindlimb regeneration in adult aquatic African clawed frogs (Xenopus laevis) by 'kick-starting' tissue repair at the amputation site. Their findings introduce a new model for testing 'electroceuticals,' or cell-stimulating therapies.

Hotter temperatures will accelerate migration of asylum-seekers to Europe

Researchers predict a rising number of asylum-seekers to the EU as global temperatures increase.

Preventing a dengue outbreak at the 2020 Summer Olympics

New controls and frameworks are recommended to detect dengue and other infectious diseases and help prevent their spread during the 2020 summer Olympics and Paralympics being held in Tokyo, researchers report.

Greener and cheaper technique for biofuel production

A research team has found that a natural bacterium isolated from mushroom crop residue can directly convert cellulose to biobutanol, a biofuel.

Turtle shells served as symbolic musical instruments for indigenous cultures

Researchers delved into how turtle shells served as symbolic musical instruments for indigenous cultures in the southeastern US.

Warming climate could speed forest regrowth in eastern US

Warming climate could speed the natural regrowth of forests on undeveloped or abandoned land in the eastern United States, according to a new study. Previous research has shown that the succession from field to forest can happen decades sooner in the southeastern US than in the Northeast. But it wasn't obvious why. A new study points to temperature as the major factor influencing the pace of reforestation.

Zika virus persists in the central nervous system and lymph nodes of rhesus monkeys

Zika virus can persist in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), lymph nodes and colorectal tissue of infected rhesus monkeys for weeks after the virus has been cleared from blood, urine and mucosal secretions, according to a study.

Can barnacle geese predict the climate?

The breeding grounds of Arctic migratory birds such as the barnacle goose are changing rapidly due to accelerated warming in the polar regions. They won't be able to keep up with this climate change unless they can somehow anticipate it. A research team employed computer models to assess the future of the geese and their young.

Mammalian development: Blastocyst architecture

The mechanisms that underlie early embryonic development in humans and cattle are very similar. Therefore, researchers argue that bovine embryos might well be a better model for early human development than the mouse system.

Yeast knockouts peel back secrets of cell protein function

To fill in the blanks on mitochondria, researchers deleted 174 genes, one by one, in yeast. They then subjected the yeast to high-intensity mass spectrometry to measure unprecedented detail on thousands of metabolic products, including proteins, intermediate chemicals called metabolites, and lipids.
