Dairy farmers protect groundwater, save money
Using advice and technology developed in partnership with University of California researchers, San Joaquin Valley dairy farmers are managing their manure lagoons better, thereby lowering fertilizer costs and protecting groundwater. (2003-05-27)

From overdose to organ donor
New research published in Critical Care, from Guy's and St Thomas' hospital in London, suggests that patients that die from drug overdoses or poisoning could donate their healthy organs to patients needing transplant operations. These findings could increase the number of organs available, saving the lives of people who die waiting for a transplant. (2003-03-06)

Cell transplantation could restore cardiac function after heart attack
French authors of a research letter in this week's issue of The Lancet describe the preliminary success of transplanting muscle stem-cells from the thigh to the heart to restore damaged cardiac tissue after heart attack. (2003-02-06)

Muscle cell transplants repair damaged heart tissue
Researchers safely transplanted 16 patients' skeletal muscle cells into their own severely damaged hearts in the first human testing in the United States. (2002-11-17)

Hibernators may hold the key for better human organ preservation
Hibernating ground squirrels are commonly seen around the golf courses, lawns and prairies of the American Midwest. Although a problem for groundskeepers because of their habit of digging holes, soon they could be famous for providing clues to keeping life-saving human transplant organs viable for extended periods of time. (2002-08-26)

Teenage boys exposed to environmental pollutants
A research letter in this week's issue of THE LANCET provides further evidence that adolescent boys exposed to organic pollutants are less likely to father a male child in adulthood. (2002-07-11)

Ecological risks of GMOs come in unexpected ways, model shows
Introducing genetically modified organisms into wild populations holds a greater theoretical risk of extinction of natural species than previously believed, according to two Purdue University scientists. (2002-06-18)

Fried green tomatoes: Transgenic tomatoes reveal critical component of thermotolerance
Scientists at Goethe University in Frankfurt (Germany) have discovered a master genetic regulator of heat sensitivity in tomatoes, whose activity is critical for tomato fruit ripening at high temperatures. (2002-06-14)

Common microbes survive pressures equal to those found at 50 kilometers inside the Earth's crust
A study published in the February 22, 2002, issue of Science shows that even common bacteria are viable under high-pressure conditions equivalent to about 50 kilometers beneath the Earth's crust or 160 kilometers in a hypothetical sea. This finding may expand the habitable zone for life within the solar system and it opens new doors for looking for life much deeper inside planetary bodies than previously considered. (2002-02-21)

Contact lens solutions may not kill off harmful eye bugs
Contact lens solutions may not kill off harmful eye bugs, reports a study in the British Journal of Ophthalmology. (2002-02-01)

$1.2M USDA grant to study Northeast organic farming
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Initiative for Future Agriculture and Food Systems has awarded a $1.2 million grant for the creation of a new organic farming network managed by Cornell University's Department of Horticulture. (2001-12-07)

New study shows that salmon 'feed' the very forests that nurture them
New research published in the journal (2001-09-20)

Understanding neurodegeneration
As published in Genes & Development, scientists have concluded that the gene ATM is required for neural fate determination and neuronal survival in the adult mammalian brain. This work represents the first steps towards the delineation of a mechanism for neuronal cell loss in progressive neurodegenerative diseases. (2001-02-28)

Human reproductive success tied to mitochondrial organization in eggs
The viability of a developing human embryo appears to be related to the clustering and subsequent symmetrical distribution of tiny DNA structures in the egg's fluid surrounding its nucleus prior to the first cell division, according to a new Colorado study. (2000-12-19)

Transgenic fish could threaten wild populations
Purdue University researchers have found that releasing a transgenic fish to the wild could damage native populations even to the point of extinction. (2000-01-24)

USGS report explains proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository
A new publication that presents radioactive-waste disposal issues in the context of the proposed underground repository for such materials at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, is available from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). (1999-08-11)

Search engines biased, out-of-date, and index no more than 16% of the web
Internet search engines are increasingly falling behind. They do not index sites equally, may not index new or modified pages for months, and no engine indexes more than 16% of the web. As the web becomes a major communications medium, the information on it must be made more accessible. (1999-07-07)

EPA And UC Researchers Find Bacteria That Can Destroy Giardia Cysts
Researchers at the U.S Environmental Protection Agency labs in Cincinnati and the department of biological sciences at the University of Cincinnati have isolated a bacteria which can destroy the common waterborne parasite Giardia in its resistant cyst form. Giardia can cause intestinal problems when ingested and is resistant to chlorination. (1998-06-09)

Biotech Approach To Feral Cat Problem Devised
A student in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine has used a summer fellowship grant from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation (Morristown, NJ) to develop a genetically engineered bacterium to serve as an oral contraceptive that may one day help solve a major animal overpopulation problem. (1998-02-18)
