Ancient Flesh Brings Mammoth Cloning Closer

 
 
Featured Story  
Mammoth cloning is closer to becoming a reality following the discovery of the best-preserved specimen ever found. An autopsy on the 40,000-year-old mammoth has yielded surprisingly fresh-looking flesh that could contain enough intact DNA to make cloning possible, galvanizing scientists who have been working for years to bring back the extinct elephant relative.

Extremophiles May Be Key to Antibacterial Drugs

Thumbnail
One of the most mysterious forms of life may turn out to be a rich and untapped source of antibacterial drugs. The mysterious life form is Archaea, a family of single-celled organisms that thrive in environments like boiling hydrothermal pools and smoking deep sea vents that are too extreme for most other species to survive.

Doubling Saturated Fat in Diet Does Not Affect Blood

Thumbnail
Doubling, or even nearly tripling, saturated fat in the diet does not drive up total levels of saturated fat in the blood, according to a controlled diet study. However, increasing levels of carbohydrates in the diet during the study promoted a steady increase in the blood of a fatty acid linked to an elevated risk for diabetes and heart disease.

Nail Stem Cells Are Highly Versatile

Thumbnail
There are plenty of body parts that don’t grow back when you lose them. Nails are an exception, and a new study reveals some of the reasons why. A team of researchers has identified a new population of nail stem cells, which have the ability to either self-renew or undergo specialization or differentiation into multiple tissues.

Technique Increases Range of Thermal Imaging

Thumbnail
FLIR Systems’ superframing technique has been developed to extend the effective scene brightness of a thermal image, while maintaining its thermal contrast. Although most thermal cameras can produce high-contrast images showing small temperature differences, they can only do so within a defined temperature range.
