High-valued biomass resource is promising

The next 20 years will be a critical period for the high-valued utilization of the waste biomass. However, the inherent defects of the biomass constrain its explorations. Nano-fibrillated cellulose is a new family of nature-based material with greatly promising features. To show the latest researches and promote the rapid developments of the biomass in China, a special seminar of “Biomass Nano-fibrillated Cellulose and Aerogel” was hold by Science & Technology Review in 4/5 tissue of 2014.

Protein products of human genome still a mystery

Well-known genes that undergo a little alternative engineering can still surprise us, a new study reports, producing protein products for biological uses scientists haven’t previously recognized. This is important since most human genes are alternatively engineered, or spliced, many times -- though actual studies of the resulting protein products are lacking.

'Gene drives' demand attention, researchers say

Before "gene drives" are considered for uses like reprogramming mosquito genomes to eliminate malaria, or reversing the development of pesticide resistance, gaps in regulations that cover this technology – which involves editing genes -- must be filled, according to the authors of this Policy Forum. It’s time for a “broadly inclusive and well-informed” public discussion about the future of gene drives, they say.

New strategy for feeding more while protecting the environment

A new report by Paul West and colleagues suggests that focusing on a relatively short list of regions, crops and actions could provide new opportunities to improve global food security while simultaneously decreasing agriculture’s environmental footprint. The study, which advances previous work aimed at providing food for a growing population, zooms in on three broad areas that have the greatest potential for reducing negative environmental impacts of agriculture while also boosting food supply.

Genetic blueprint of bread wheat genome unveiled

The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) published today in the international journal Science a draft sequence of the bread wheat genome. The chromosome-based draft provides new insight into the structure, organization, and evolution of the large, complex genome of the world’s most widely grown cereal crop.

Organismal biologists needed to interpret new trees of life

Molecular information is forcing the revision of many ideas about the evolution of animal body plans, but providing persuasive explanations for events that occurred in the remote past is likely to remain a major challenge. To construct evolutionary hypotheses that integrate the new data with science more generally, organismal biologists need to use their imaginations. But they should also be disciplined about assessing the broadest possible range of evidence, to avoid being misled by faulty intuitions

Biological pacemaker cells reset heartbeats

Genetically tweaking heart tissue to regulate the speed of heartbeats could one day be an alternative to electronic pacemakers, a new study reports. If proven to work in humans, these biological pacemakers could be used in special cases where people need an electronic pacemaker but can’t get one, like fetuses with congenital heart block, or adults who develop life-threatening infections after implantation and need to have the devices temporarily removed.

History of stroke linked with increased risk of adverse outcomes after non-cardiac surgery

In an analysis that included more than 480,000 patients who underwent elective noncardiac surgery, a history of stroke was associated with an increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events and death, particularly if time elapsed between stroke and surgery was less than 9 months, according to a study in the July 16 issue of JAMA.

Cooperation among humans, a question of age

According to an article by scientists from the Universities of Barcelona, Carlos III of Madrid, and of Zaragoza which was published in the journal Nature Communications, young people between the ages of ten and sixteen demonstrate more fickle behavior when it comes to cooperating, unlike other age groups. People over the age of 66 demonstrated the most cooperative behavior.
