  • The skin microbiome: More than skin deep November 20, 2014
    Skin microbiota plays an intricate role in the human immune system, directing many immune functions and defending against invading bacterial pathogens. In a review article in the Nov. 21, 2014, issue of Science, Julie Segre, Ph.D., head of the Microbial Genomics Section at NHGRI, and Yasmine Belkaid, Ph.D., head of the Mucosal Immunology Section at NIAID, re […]
  • Mouse genome studies find both similarities and striking differences with human genome November 19, 2014
    An international group of researchers has found powerful clues to why certain processes and systems in the mouse are so different from those in people and have developed a resource to help scientists better understand how similarities and differences between mice and humans are written in their genomes. The findings �are reported by the mouse ENCODE Consorti […]

  • New Drug for Common Liver Disease Assessed November 24, 2014

  • Unmanned underwater vehicle provides first 3-D images of underside of Antarctic sea ice November 24, 2014
    A National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded research team has successfully tested an autonomous underwater vehicle, AUV, that can produce high-resolution, three-dimensional maps of Antarctic sea ice. SeaBED, as the vehicle is known, measured and mapped the underside of sea-ice floes in three areas off the Antarctic Peninsula that were previously inaccessible. […]
  • Innovative new supercomputers increase nation's computational capacity and capability November 24, 2014
    Tens of thousands of researchers nationwide currently harness the power of massive supercomputers to solve research problems that cannot be answered in the lab. However, studies show this represents only a fraction of the potential users of such resources.As supercomputing--also known as high performance computing or HPC--becomes central to the work and prog […]
