Quotes

...of Illinois and Howard Hughes Medical Institute chemistry professor Martin Burke, who led the study with chemistry professor Chad Rienstra. "There are about 3 million cases per year and what's striking is that, even in 2014, half the patients who come into the hospital with an invasive fungal infection in their blood die."
...has developed over the course of evolution, scientists from the universities in Mainz and Basel have gained new insights from the study of earwigs. "Young earwig offspring don't simply compete for food. Rather the siblings share what is available amongst themselves, especially when the mother is absent" explained Dr. Jol Meunier of the Evolutionary Biology section of the InstituteInstitute of Zoology at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (JGU)...
...the action of this important plant hormone," says Julian Schroeder, a professor of biology at UC San Diego who headed the researchresearch effort. "For example, we can now investigate whether an increase in the leaf [CO2] concentration that occurs every night due to respiration in leaves affects the ABA concentration in stomatal cells."
"We think it's the first example of a nanoparticle that carries a precise ratio of three drugs and can release those drugs in response to three distinct triggering mechanisms" says Jeremiah Johnson, an assistant professorprofessor of chemistry at MIT and the senior author of the new paper
