In order to understand the risk of uranium toxicity to living organisms
, scientists need to understand how or if uranium compounds are taken up by aquatic organisms
whether through diet, or directly from the waters they live in, and which uranium compounds are most available to living organisms
under different environmental conditions, said USGS biologist and lead author of the study, Marie-Nole Croteau.
A spherical microbe from the weird world of hot-water ocean vents has trumped the nitrogen-processing powers of all organisms
While bacteria were not seen in hematoxylin and eosin or gram-stained sections, Warthin-Starry staining showed multiple clusters of rod-shaped organisms
within the masses of fibrin.
The densely packed website offers a wealth of scientific resources related to its research on human genetics, model organisms
, pathogens, bioinformatics, sequencing, and proteomics.
But if demand for bagels increases and its population swells, the dog may be recognized as an official breed, or a group of organisms
descended from common ancestors.
Let each student choose a specific organism
Temporal bone infection is believed to be caused by the spread of the organism
from the pharynx to the middle ear via the eustachian tube.
We must accordingly hope that the mutation can instead be in the nature of the giant organism
, humankind, itself--a mutation in the means of communication, in the nerve fibers of the organization, that will transfer to this whole great organism
some of the desirable and admirable attributes that are possessed by the units of which it is composed, the individual human beings.
Whenever a genetically engineered organism
is released, there is always a small chance that it, too, will run amok because, like non-indigenous species, it has been artificially introduced into a complex environment that has developed a web of highly integrated relationships over long periods of evolutionary history.
When turned loose in cyberspace, these computer creatures act very much like living organisms
Using the company's engineering technology, AureoGen will genetically alter the genome in Takara's antifungal-producing organism
to produce novel broad-spectrum drug candidates.
pneumoniae; the organism
was resistant to all [beta]-lactam antimicrobial drugs tested, including cefepime, ceftriaxone, piperacillin/tazobactam, imipenem, fluoroquinolones, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, gentamicin, and tobramycin.
