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...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science reporting in the journal Nature Photonics said they have found a way to send images of light around corners. By shining light from a normal lamp through a highly scattering plastic film, the team was able to show-off exactly what they could do with spatial light modulators (SLMs). "The ability to image through inhomogeneous media is extremely valuable in numerous applications,...

Genetics Could Explain Parrots Ability To Parrot
2012-07-05 04:42:15

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists say they have put together a more complete string of genetic letters that may control how well parrots learn to imitate their owners and other noises. Researchers unraveled the certain regions of the parrots' genome using a new technology, single molecule sequencing, and fixing its flaws with data from older DNA-decoding devices. Researchers also decoded hard-to-sequence genetic material from corn and bacteria as proof...

Scientists are reporting an advance toward treating disease with minute capsules containing not drugs – but the DNA and other biological machinery for making the drug. In an article in ACS' journal Nano Letters, they describe engineering micro- and nano-sized capsules that contain the genetically coded instructions, plus the read-out gear and assembly line for protein synthesis that can be switched on with an external signal. Daniel Anderson and colleagues explain that development of...

Could First Century Bones Have Belonged To John The Baptist?
2012-06-16 05:35:03

Researchers from Oxford University claim that they have discovered new evidence supporting the notion that a knuckle bone and other human remains discovered under a Bulgarian church could belong to the Biblical figure John the Baptist. According to AFP reports published Friday, the remains, which were discovered two years ago in a small marble sarcophagus buried beneath a church floor on the island of Sveti Ivan, were dated by a university research team. They found that the knuckle bone...

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...
