Expedition to the Greenland Sea with Surprising Results Marine scientists from Kiel, together with colleagues from Bremen, Great Britain, Switzerland and Norway, spent four and a half weeks examining methane emanation from the sea bed off the coast of Spitsbergen with the German research vessel MARIA S. MERIAN. There they gained a very differentiated picture: Several of the gas outlets have been active for hundreds of years. Frequent storms and sub-zero temperatures — nature drove...

Study examines the influence of antioxidants on the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease Forgetfulness, lack of orientation, cognitive decline“¦ about 700, 000 Germans suffer from Alzheimer's disease (AD). Now researchers from the University of Ulm, among them the Epidemiologist Professor Gabriele Nagel and the Neurologist Professor Christine von Arnim, have discovered that the serum-concentration of the antioxidants vitamin C and beta-carotene are significantly lower in...

Methane Reservoir Beneath Antarctic Ice Sheet

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A recent study of the Antarctic Ice Sheet suggests that it could be a largely overlooked source of the potent greenhouse gas methane. An international team of scientists from the University of Bristol, the University of California, Santa Cruz, the University of Alberta, Edmonton, and the University of Utrecht, demonstrate that old organic matter in sedimentary basins located beneath the Antarctic Ice Sheet may have been converted to...

Examining gas outlets off the coast of Spitsbergen with the submersible JAGO West of Spitsbergen methane gas is effervescing out of the seabed. Is this an indication that methane hydrates in the seabed are dissolving due to rising temperatures? And what would the effects be? An expedition with the German research vessel MARIA S. MERIAN and the submersible JAGO lead by GEOMAR | Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel hopes to help answer these questions. The expedition begins today in...

Metal-organic framework captures saturated hydrocarbons, letting pure unsaturated gases through A new type of hybrid material developed at the University of California, Berkeley, could help oil and chemical companies save energy and money — and lower their environmental impacts — by eliminating an energy-intensive gas-separation process. Today, to separate hydrocarbon gas mixtures into the pure chemicals needed to make plastics, refineries "crack" crude oil at high...

A new catalytic process could convert by-products of diesel production into more useful chemicals for industry A new catalytic process discovered at Cardiff University could unleash a range of useful new by-products from diesel fuel production. More sustainable production of sulphur-free diesel from natural gas and biomass is increasing. However the by-products, hydrocarbons like decane and other low value alkanes have little practical use. Now a discovery at the University's Cardiff...

An international team of scientists led by University of Hawai'i at Mānoa Professor Ralf I. Kaiser, Alexander M. Mebel of Florida International University, and Alexander Tielens of Leiden Observatory in the Netherlands, discovered a novel chemical route to form polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) — complex organic molecules such as naphthalene carrying fused benzene rings — in ultra-cold regions of interstellar space. The team announced their findings in the January...

Golden Rice
2013-10-02 14:11:48

Golden Rice is a variety of Oryza sativa rice produced  through genetic engineering to biosynthesize beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, in the edible parts of the rice. The research was conducted with the goal of producing a fortified food to be grown and consumed in areas with a shortage of dietary vitamin A, a deficiency which is estimated to kill 670,000 children under five years old each year. Golden rice is different from its parental strain by the addition of three...
