Studying Plant And Cell Growth In Space
2013-09-12 12:32:17

American Journal of Botany At work on the International Space Station, researchers studying plant and cell growth in space encountered a challenge. Imaging revealed interesting spaceflight-associated root morphologies. They needed to fix the tissues for further study back on Earth, but conventional fixation methods require separate fixatives depending on whether the sample is intended for molecular or morphological study. If the scientists wanted to study how spaceflight affected patterns...

New Laser-based Tool May Improve Accuracy Of Brain Tumor Surgery
2013-09-05 09:00:43

Harvard University In the battle against brain cancer, doctors now have a new weapon -- a new imaging technology that will make brain surgery dramatically more accurate by allowing surgeons to distinguish -- at a microscopic level -- between brain tissue and tumors. Called SRS microscopy -- short for stimulated Raman scattering -- a team of researchers that included Xiaoliang Sunney Xie, the Mallinckrodt Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and Minbiao Ji, a Post-Doctoral Fellow...

Natural Processes ‘Channeled’ By Self-Healing Solar Cells
2013-08-08 10:56:15

North Carolina State University To understand how solar cells heal themselves, look no further than the nearest tree leaf or the back of your hand. The "branching" vascular channels that circulate life-sustaining nutrients throughout leaves and hands serve as the inspiration for solar cells that can restore themselves efficiently and inexpensively. In a new paper, North Carolina State University researchers Orlin Velev and Hyung-Jun Koo show that creating solar cell devices with...

Mycobacterium smegmatis is 3.0 to 5.0 µm long with a bacillus shape, an acid-fast bacterial species in the phylum Actinobacteria. It can be stained by Ziehl-Neelsen method and the auramine-rhodamine fluorescent method. It was first reported in 1884. Alvarez and Tavel found organisms similar to Lustgarten, who first discovered Mycobacterium. This organism was later named M. smegmatis. It is considered a non-pathogenic microorganism although, in rare cases, it can cause disease. M....

Gardnerella is a genus of gram-variable-staining facultative anaerobic bacteria of which G. vaginalis is the only species. It grows as small, circular, convex, gray colonies on chocolate agar. Colistin-oxolinic acid blood agar is a selective medium for G. vaginalis. Bacterial vaginosis results in some women as a result of disruption of the normal vaginal microflora. Lactobacillus population in the vagina is responsible for the acidic environment. Prescription antibiotics with anaerobic...
