PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Security researchers estimate over 90 percent of network threats go undetected, leaving companies vulnerable to attacks. Of course, as companies grow, they encounter more sources where threats could originate, including employees' personal devices, wi-fi networks and external servers. Often IT teams are tasked with managing these threats, maintaining the logs they create and re-securing the network, all with limited resources, and while...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A South Korean company that charges about $100,000 US for animal cloning procedures has just cloned Britain’s first dog for free. The dog was copied from a 12-year-old pet dachshund named Winnie, owned by Rebecca Smith of London. Smith won a contest sponsored by Sooam Biotech, the company behind the cloning. The company is already known for creating more than 500 cloned dogs for owners all around the world, but Smith’s dog is...

Researchers probe origin of optimized antibodies against infections An organism's ability to make new antibodies and use them to optimize its own immune defenses is of central importance in the fight against pathogens. In the case of severe infections, the overall relative speed with which an immune response proceeds could mean the difference between life and death. An international team of scientists, among them systems immunologist Prof. Michael Meyer-Hermann of the Helmholtz Centre for...

New method will simplify study and treatment of diseases Therapeutic antibodies can be an efficient alternative when common drugs do not work anymore. However, antibodies obtained from blood of animals such as mice could not be used: The human immune system recognizes them as foreign and rejects them. In an international cooperation, scientists from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig, Germany have now succeeded in developing a promising approach to solve this...

Despite the many cosmetic products, surgical treatments, food supplements, and drugs designed specifically to reverse the biological effects of aging in humans, long-lived aspen clones aren't so lucky. Researchers at the University of British Columbia have shown that as long-lived male aspen clones age, their sexual performance declines. Dilara Ally, who conducted this research for her Ph.D., also showed that with that loss of sex and sexual fitness, ultimately the lineage could go extinct....

A Rice University study of microbes from a Houston-area cow pasture has confirmed once again that everything is bigger in Texas, even the single-celled stuff. The tests revealed the first-ever report of a large, natural colony of amoebae clones -- a Texas-sized expanse measuring at least 12 meters across. The research is available online and featured on cover of the March issue of Molecular Ecology. Some large organisms like aspen trees and sea anemones are well-known for growing in large...

A South Korean cloning expert has announced that one of the world's first cloned wolves will mate with another clone to test their reproductive ability in an unprecedented experiment, the AFP reported. Seoul National University researcher Lee Byeong-Chun said Snuwolffy, born in October 2005, will pair with Minguk, a male clone born in August 2006. Lee said the experiment is aimed at verifying the cloned wolves' reproductive ability. In 2005, Lee and his team were credited with creating...

Booger, a dead Pit Bull owned by Bernann McKunney, may be brought back to life, or at least, "re-birthed." McKunney, who is from California, has put in an order with RNL Bio in South Korea to have her dog cloned. This is the company's first "commercial order", and it is costing McKunney $150,000. She was incredibly attached to Booger, due to the fact that he saved her life following an attack where another dog bit her arm off. Prior to Booger's death a year and a half ago, McKunney gave RNL...
