Protecting quantum computing networks against hacking threats
As we saw during the 2016 US election, protecting traditional computer systems, which use zeros and ones, from hackers is not a perfect science. Now consider the complex world of quantum computing, where bits of information can simultaneously hold multiple states beyond zero and one, and the potential threats become even trickier to tackle. Researchers at the University of Ottawa have uncovered clues that could help administrators protect quantum computing networks from external attacks. (2017-02-03)

Scientists surmount epigenetic barriers to cloning with two-pronged approach
An international group of researchers have raised the viability of mice that were cloned using a method called somatic cell nuclear transfer, by stimulating two epigenetic factors, and by doing this have shown that creating cloned animals more efficiently will require further work in the area of epigenetics.

Radiographs of Dolly's skeleton show no signs of abnormal osteoarthritis
Original concerns that cloning caused early-onset osteoarthritis in Dolly the sheep are unfounded, say experts at the University of Nottingham and the University of Glasgow. The team, who published last year's Nottingham Dollies research which showed that the 8 year-old Nottingham 'Dollies' had aged normally, have now published a radiographic assessment of the skeletons of Dolly herself, Bonnie (her naturally conceived daughter) and Megan and Morag (the first two animals to be cloned from differentiated cells).

Approximate quantum cloning: The new way of eavesdropping in quantum cryptography
Cloning of quantum states is used for eavesdropping in the context of quantum cryptography or for quantum computation. Uncertainty at the quantum scale makes exact cloning of quantum states impossible. Yet, they may be copied in an approximate way using a method called probabilistic quantum cloning, or PQC. In a new study published in EPJ D, Pinshu Rui from Anhui Xinhua and Anhui Universities, Hefei, China, and colleagues demonstrate that partial PQC is possible. (2018-02-20)

Human clones: New U.N. analysis lays out world's choices
In an analysis for world governments, the U.N. University's Institute of Advanced Studies warns of a stark choice: reach a compromise agreement quickly that outlaws human reproductive cloning or start preparations to protect the rights of cloned individuals from potential abuse, prejudice and discrimination. A legally-binding global ban on work to create a human clone, coupled with freedom for nations to permit strictly controlled therapeutic research, has the greatest political viability of options available to the international community, says the report. (2007-11-10)

Cloned mice created from fully differentiated cells, a milestone in cloning research
New research dismisses the notion that adult stem cells are necessary for successful animal cloning, proving instead that cells that have completely evolved to a specific type not only can be used for cloning purposes, but they may be better and more efficient. As proof, researchers report they created two mouse pups from a type of blood cell that itself is incapable of dividing to produce a second generation of its own kind. (2006-10-01)

Scientists discover powerful potential pain reliever
Chemists have discovered a powerful pain reliever that acts on a previously unknown pain pathway. The compound is as effective at relieving neuropathic pain in injured mice as a drug widely used for pain relief called gabapentin. If they can demonstrate that it is safe, effective and nonaddictive in humans -- a process that typically takes years -- the discovery could address one of today's biggest public health challenges: the opioid abuse epidemic.

Polyps will let unrelated 'others' fuse to them and share tissue, scientists discover
University of Kansas scientists discovered that polyps have no qualms about treating a nonrelated individual like part of the family. This goes way beyond sharing meals or even a roof. Polyps of the marine hydrozoan Ectopleura larynx allow nonrelated individuals to fuse their bodies to the familial colony and share what is essentially skin and a stomach. The findings appeared yesterday in the journal Evolution Letters.  (2018-07-12)

Novel antigen-cloning technique may boost efforts to develop a melanoma vaccine
Experimental vaccines to help the immune system fight tumors have rarely been designed to directly stimulate helper T cells, one of the body's most critical immune responders, because of the difficult process required to isolate and clone antigens for vaccine development. Now, a new technique may allow scientists to create a melanoma vaccine able to stimulate helper T cells. The approach may also aid in the development of other vaccines against cancers or infectious diseases. (2007-04-15)

Evolution of fruit size in tomato
In general, domesticated food plants have larger fruits, heads of grain, tubers, etc., because this is one of the characteristics that early hunter-gatherers chose when foraging for food. In addition to size, tomatoes have been bred for shape, texture, flavor, shelf-life and nutrient composition, but it has been difficult to study these traits in tomatoes because many of them are the result of many genes acting together.
