Terry Gess shared this information:Hello Fellow potters-Heads up for a GREAT resource on understanding glazes! I’ve been studying with Matt Katz in the Alfred Online Introduction to Glazes course. Its expensive (and comprehensive) but...Show More Summary
A fatty molecule thought to be unique to flowering plants has turned up in bacteria skimmed from the Adriatic Sea. The surprising finding solves a 20-year-old paleontological mystery and could affect how scientists interpret the presence of this molecule in the ecological record. Show More Summary
In an article published in PLOS ONE, Brazilian scientists detail the genetic structure and molecular diversity of the varieties of cocoa grown in the state of Bahia for over 200 years, and identify trees resistant to witch's broom.
EGFR mutations is associated with a longer median overall survival (almost double) compared with those without EGFR mutations when treated with specific targeted agents.

(University of Liverpool) Scientists have identified a 'molecular barcode' in the blood of patients with Ebola that can predict whether they are likely to survive or die from the viral infection.A team at the University of Liverpool,...Show More Summary
A high-fat diet speeds tumour growth in mice, but this can be counteracted by drugs that lower levels of a metabolite in the blood.Diet can influence cancer survival, but the molecular reasons are largely unknown. Jing Chen at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and
The Nature Insight 'Frontiers in Biology' aims to cover timely and important developments across biology, ranging from molecular mechanisms to whole-organism physiology and biomedicine.Improvements in sequencing and in methods for enriching and extracting ancient DNA have furthered the temporal and geographic reach of
It was the summer of 2016 and molecular and cellular biologist/multidisciplinary artist Ashley Baccus-Clark was gifting herself a day of self-care. The police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile had left her, like so many black Americans, anguished and weary. Show More Summary
(Phys.org)—A team of researchers at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam has built, for the first time, a molecular fountain. The group has published a paper in the journal Physical Review Letters describing how they created the fountain, how it works and their ideas on how it might be used to more precisely measure physical constants.
Research in mice points to better understanding of how the structure of nerve cells in the adult hippocampus may deteriorate, which can lead to Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders, report researchers.
Adhesins are surface structures of bacteria that facilitate their attachment to host cells or non-living materials. Most adhesins do not just bind to any surface; rather, they recognize specific molecules or receptors on the target surface.
