Computer Simulations Reveal Roots of Drug Resistance

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 10:05 AM PST

Newswise imageNew supercomputer simulations have revealed the role of transport proteins called efflux pumps in creating drug-resistance in bacteria, research that could lead to improving the drugs' effectiveness against life-threatening diseases and restoring the efficacy of defunct antibiotics.

NY Hop Growers Face Challenges to Meet Rising Brewery Demands

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 10:05 AM PST

The New York craft beer industry is really hopping. From 2012 to 2016, the number of breweries more than tripled, from 95 to 302 (break)- and the industry contributes $3.5 billion to the state's economy annually. This surging craft-brewing industry is spilling into agriculture, specifically in the demand for hops, a key ingredient in beer.

Pigeons Can Discriminate Both Space and Time

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 09:00 AM PST

Newswise imagePigeons aren't so bird-brained after all. New research from the University of Iowa shows that pigeons can discriminate the abstract concepts of space and time, likely using a different region of the brain than humans and primates to do so. Results appear in the journal Current Biology.

North American Storm Clusters Could Produce 80 Percent More Rain

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 08:05 AM PST

Newswise imageMajor clusters of summertime thunderstorms in North America will grow larger, more intense, and more frequent later this century in a changing climate

Brain Researchers Gain Greater Understanding of How We Generate Internal Experiences

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 08:00 AM PST

Newswise imageOur mental life is rich with an enormous number of internal experiences. We can vividly recall an episode from childhood as well as what we did just five minutes ago. We can imagine and plan in detail our next vacation. How does the brain achieve this magic? In a new study researchers showed that internal experiences, such as recalling personal memories, are associated with the simultaneous activity of different cognitive systems.

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 07:00 AM PST

The Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) today announced the Cancer Therapeutics Innovation Pipeline (CTIP) initiative and the first 10 projects selected in CTIP's inaugural round of funding. CTIP aims to support the local translation of Ontario discoveries into therapies with the potential for improving the lives of cancer patients.

When the Nose Doesn't Know: Can Loss of Smell Be Repaired?

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 06:05 AM PST

Newswise imageResearchers at Tufts are examining the behavior of stem cells within the context of aging and loss of smell. In Cell Stem Cell, they report mechanisms to regenerate adult stem cells in mice to restore smell cells: it mimics induced pluripotency, but is simpler, involving only two Yamanaka factors.

Conquering Traffic Congestion with Mathematics

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 06:00 AM PST

The National Science Foundation has awarded more than $446,000 for a new collaborative engineering project that will allow drivers to make more informed travel decisions and allow government organizations to better regulate travel within heavily congested major metropolitan areas.

SOT Releases Issue Statement on Safety of Genetically Engineered Food Crops

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 06:00 AM PST

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) has approved a new Issue Statement on food and feed safety related to genetically engineered (GE) crops (commonly referred to as GMOs). The Society's journal, Toxicological Sciences, also has published a new forum article that provides an in-depth review of 20+ years of GE research.

Submarine Volcanoes Add to Ocean Soundscape

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 05:00 AM PST

Newswise imageMost volcanoes erupt beneath the ocean, but scientists know little about them compared to what they know about volcanoes that eject their lava on dry land. Researchers think that with improved monitoring, they can learn more about these submarine eruptions, which threaten travel and alter the ocean soundscape. During the 174th ASA meeting, held Dec. 4-8, 2017, in New Orleans, Gabrielle Tepp of the USGS will discuss the challenges and benefits of remote monitoring and what it can teach about submarine volcanoes.
