Revealing hungry salmon with sound waves

Testing of the SICA-system outside Norway. In contrast to the traditional method of underwater video cameras, this system was found to detect unusual behavior of salmon more effectively during the feeding process by identifying low feed intake earlier.

Study revealing the secret behind a key cellular process refutes biology textbooks

COLUMBUS, Ohio – New research has identified and described a cellular process that, despite what textbooks say, has remained elusive to scientists until now – precisely how the copying of genetic material that, once started, is properly turned off. The finding concerns a key process essential to life: the transcription phase of gene expression, which […]
