Quotes

...According to news originating from Jena, Germany , by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Bacteria produce a remarkable diversity of bioactive molecules with antimicrobial properties. Despite the importance of such compounds for human medicine, little is known about the factors influencing antibiotic production in natural environments."
...This strategy to avoid infections is comparable to the combination prophylaxis used in human medicine (see press release of February 23, 2010 ( "Beewolves Protect their Offspring With Antibiotics - Digger wasp larvae use bacteria against infections" )
...Lederkremer. "The identification of the new cause will hopefully lead to the development of new therapeutic approaches. This may hold true for other neurodegenerative diseases as well."
With further analysis of binary black holes, scientists hope to learn how and at what rate galaxies merge with each other. "Once we have detected thousands of tidal disruption events, we can begin to extract reliable statistics about the rate at which galaxies merge" Komossa said
