Latest Marine Biological Laboratory Stories
The often damaging impacts of intensive agriculture on nearby streams, rivers, and their wildlife has been well documented in temperate zones, such as North America and Europe.
Scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) have identified several genes linked to human neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injury, in the sea lamprey, a vertebrate fish whose whole-genome sequence is reported this week in the journal Nature Genetics.
NIH Human Microbiome Project finds patterns of microbial diversity, distributions earlier discovered in ocean ecosystems by scientists at MBL Woods Hole
The origin of the exquisitely complex vertebrate brain is somewhat mysterious.
Just like people, some proteins have characteristic ways of "walking," which (also like human gaits) are not so easy to describe.
New fluorescent labeling technology that distinguishes in a single image the population size and spatial distribution of 15 different taxa has uncovered new taxon pairings that indicate unsuspected cooperation -- and standoffishness -- between members of the microbe biofilm that covers teeth.
"Macrosystems biology" funding supports predictive understanding of large-scale biological responses to climate, land-use change.
One helpful action anyone can take in response to global warming is to plant trees and preserve forests.
Team from MBL, West Point uses new imaging technology to 'see' camouflaged marine animals in the eyes of their predators.
