Newswise imageTSRI scientists identify molecule that fuels cancer metastasis.

Savanna Fires Pump Central African Forests Full of Nitrogen

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 09:05 AM PST

Newswise imageFlorida State University researchers are part of a global team of scientists revealing the unexpected role that large-scale fires and high nitrogen deposition play in the ecology and biogeochemistry of these lush Central African forests.

GM Revs up Diesel Combustion Modeling on Titan Supercomputer

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

Newswise imageGrover and GM colleagues Jian Gao, Venkatesh Gopalakrishnan, and Ramachandra Diwakar are using the Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility to improve combustion models for diesel passenger car engines with an ultimate goal of accelerating innovative engine designs while meeting strict emissions standards.

Particle Interactions Calculated on Titan Support the Search for New Physics Discoveries

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

Newswise imageNuclear physicists are using the nation's most powerful supercomputer, Titan, at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) to study particle interactions important to energy production in the Sun and stars and to propel the search for new physics discoveries. The research team using Titan, including principal investigator William Detmold of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is calculating proton-proton fusion--a process that powers the Sun and other stars in which two protons fuse to form a deuteron--and double beta decay, a rare process which occurs when an unstable nucleus decays by emitting two electrons with or without neutrinos (subatomic particles with near-zero mass).

When It Comes to Genes, Lichens Embrace Sharing Economy

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

University of Colorado Boulder researchers have discovered the first known molecular evidence of obligate symbiosis in lichens, a distinctive co-evolutionary relationship that could shed new light on how and why some multicellular organisms consolidate their genomes in order to co-exist.

First 3-D Imaging of Excited Quantum Dots

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

Newswise imageQuantum dots are rapidly taking center stage in emerging applications and research developments, but researchers are still studying how to precisely control the growth of these nanoscale particles and their underlying quantum behavior. For instance, defects form during production of semiconductor materials, so identical dots can differ in composition from one another. To learn more about these defects, a team has demonstrated imaging of an electronically excited quantum dot at multiple orientations.

UNH Researchers Find Warmer Oceans Could Increase Invasive 'Sea Squirts'

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 07:05 AM PST

Newswise imageThey're lovingly called 'sea squirts', but certain marine soft-bodied animals, or tunicates, could cause a giant-sized problem in cold water areas like the Gulf of Maine. New research shows that with a water temperature increase of just two degrees Celsius predicted in the coming years, the invasive tunicate species Botrylloides violaceus will be able to double their reproduction.

UNH Researchers Find Beetles Make Way For Baby Similar To Humans

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 07:05 AM PST

Newswise imageBefore having a baby, most human parents determine if they are able to feed them, give them a good home and provide them with the best chance to grow up. Researchers have found a similar behavior pattern in the beetle world - specifically with burying beetles who may choose the number of their offspring based on available resources like food.

Nature, Meet Nurture

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 07:05 AM PST

Newswise imageIs it nature or nurture that ultimately shapes an organism? A new study reveals a dramatic landscape of gene expression changes across all cell types in the mouse visual cortex after a sensory experience, many linked to neural connectivity and the brain's ability to rewire itself to learn and adapt.

How Do Scientists Do Traditional Plant Breeding?

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 06:00 AM PST

Newswise imageThe science of plant breeding has only existed for a little more than a century. But, humans have unofficially been selecting for the 'cream of the crop' for over 10,000 years. The February 7th Sustainable, Secure Food blog post explains how crop breeders use traditional methods of plant breeding.

David Asner Named Deputy Associate Laboratory Director and Head of the Instrumentation Division in Brookhaven Lab's Nuclear and Particle Physics Directorate

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 04:05 AM PST

Newswise imageA particle physicist with extensive leadership and management experience, Asner will help expand a portfolio of physics programs and oversee instrumentation research and development.

Hayward Fault Earthquake Simulations Increase Fidelity of Ground Motions

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 02:05 AM PST

In the next 30 years, there is a one-in-three chance that the Hayward fault will rupture with a 6.7 magnitude or higher earthquake, according to the United States Geologic Survey (USGS). Such an earthquake will cause widespread damage to structures, transportation and utilities, as well as economic and social disruption in the East Bay.

Devoted Frog Fathers Guard Their Eggs From Predators

Posted: 07 Feb 2018 08:05 PM PST

Newswise imageA study led by PhD candidate Mr K. S. Seshadri from the Department of Biological Sciences at the National University of Singapore's Faculty of Science has revealed that male white-spotted bush frogs (Raochestes chalazodes) dedicatedly guard their fertilised eggs from other cannibalistic male frogs and predators. The study confirmed that the adult male white-spotted bush frogs are the sole caregivers of their offspring, predominantly by attending to and guarding the eggs.
