(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) A team at CSHL reports success in a small-scale test of a new analytical method to improve the early detection of potentially lethal prostate cancer. Based on diagnostic biopsy samples, the method promises to more accurately parse men who need surgery from those who do not.
Cold Spring Harbor, NY - The facts about prostate cancer can be confusing. It's the third most common cancer type among Americans - 161,000 men will be diagnosed this year, the National Cancer Institute estimates. Yet according to the...Show More Summary

The ALMA Observatory in Chile has detected dust around the closest star to the Solar System, Proxima Centauri. These new observations reveal the glow coming from cold dust in a region between one to four times as far from Proxima...
Cold Spring Harbor, NY - One of the most hopeful discoveries of modern neuroscience is firm proof that the human brain is not static following birth. Rather, it is continually renewing itself, via a process called postnatal neurogenesis - literally, the birth of new neurons. Show More Summary
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) This week in the Journal of Cell Biology, Professor Linda Van Aelst and colleagues at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) describe for the first time (in mice) how baby neurons -- precursors called neuroblasts,...Show More Summary
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) Figuring out how accurate replication works at the level of individual molecules and atoms is one of the great achievements of modern science. The journey of investigators is not yet done, however. A major unsolved part of the puzzle is understanding how the entire process of copying the genome begins. Show More Summary
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) What happens in the brain when we learn that fire is very hot and can hurt us? It's the kind of learning that results from the association of a sensory stimulus and the perception of threat. New research...Show More Summary
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press) 'Cancer Evolution', from CSHLPress, examines cancer progression as an evolutionary process and explores how this way of looking at cancer may lead to more effective strategies for managing and treating it. Show More Summary
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) Neuroscientists at CSHL have mobilized advanced imaging and computational methods to comprehensively map -- 'count' -- the total populations of specific types of cells throughout the mouse brain. In aShow More Summary
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) Scientists at CSHL have harnessed the untapped power of genome editing to improve agricultural crops. In tomato they have mobilized CRISPR to rapidly generate variants of the plant displaying a continuum of three agriculturally important traits: fruit size, branching architecture and overall plant shape. Show More Summary
Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have harnessed the still untapped power of genome editing to improve agricultural crops. Using tomato as an example, they have mobilized CRISPR/Cas9 technology to rapidly generate variants...Show More Summary

High winds, cold air blowing off the water, heavy rains… welcome to Scotland golf on the shores of Lake Michigan in early fall. The HOG World Tour stopped in at Bay Harbor to play the Links Course and Quarry Course, each 9-holes. Bay Harbor Golf Club is located in Bay Harbor, Michigan, very close to […]
(University of California - Davis) The "jumping genes" of maize have finally been mapped by an international team led by researchers at UC Davis and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The discovery could ultimately benefit the breeding and production of maize, one of the world's most important crops.
