Photonic Interactions Measured At The Atomic Level
2012-08-31 13:31:45

By measuring the unique properties of light on the scale of a single atom, researchers from Duke University and Imperial College, London, believe that they have characterized the limits of metal's ability in devices that enhance light. This field is known as plasmonics because scientists are trying to take advantage of plasmons, electrons that have been "excited" by light in a phenomenon that produces electromagnetic field enhancement. The enhancement achieved by metals at the nanoscale is...

Seawater Contains DNA Of Marine Fish And Mammals
2012-08-31 07:49:07

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A half liter of seawater can contain evidence of local fish and whale faunas and combat traditional fishing methods, says a new study from the University of Copenhagen. Researchers there have created a new way for monitoring marine biodiversity and resources by using DNA traces in seawater samples. The results of this study are now published in the journal PLoS ONE. "The new DNA-method means that we can keep better track of life...

In a discovery that defies the popular meaning of the word "wire," scientists have found that Mother Nature uses DNA as a wire to detect the constantly occurring genetic damage and mistakes that “• if left unrepaired “• can result in diseases like cancer and underpin the physical and mental decline of aging. That topic “• DNA wires and their potential use in identifying people at risk for certain diseases “• is the focus of a plenary talk here...

Harvard Scientists Write Book In DNA And Accurately Copy, Read It Back

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online DNA, the building block of life, is now home to more than just the world´s living creatures. Scientists from Harvard University report that they have written an entire novel in DNA, a feat that could revolutionize our ability to save data. Our genetic code packs billions of gigabytes into a single gram. That is significantly more information that a single microchip could even think about storing. In fact, a single milligram...

In a new study, UT Dallas researchers outline how they used fluorescent molecules to “tag” DNA and monitor a process called DNA looping, a natural biological mechanism involved in rearranging genetic material in some types of cells. The UT Dallas “tag and track” method not only sheds light on how DNA loops form, but also might be adapted to screen drugs for effectiveness against certain viruses that shuffle genetic material, such as  HIV. Until now,...

DNA Code Shapes Gold Nanoparticles
2012-08-08 16:01:32

DNA holds the genetic code for all sorts of biological molecules and traits. But University of Illinois researchers have found that DNA´s code can similarly shape metallic structures. The team found that DNA segments can direct the shape of gold nanoparticles — tiny gold crystals that have many applications in medicine, electronics and catalysis. Led by Yi Lu, the Schenck Professor of Chemistry at the U. of I., the team published its surprising findings in the journal Angewandte...

Sky
2004-10-19 04:45:44

Sky -- Although almost everyone have seen it, sky is hard to be defined precisely. Generally, sky is the space seen when one looks upward from the surface of a planet. Some people define sky as the denser gaseous zone of a planet's atmosphere. Clouds, rainbows and weather all occur amongst a planet's sky. In astronomy, the sky is divided into many regions, called constellations. The blue colour of the daytime sky results from the selective scattering of light rays. When the sunlight...
