The findings may help researchers learn more about steering infants' immune development away from inflammatory, allergy-prone pathways.
The technique produces tiny amounts of the opioid molecules, but the process might someday reduce the manufacture time of certain medications.
Bacteria made quick work of the methane released by the Deepwater Horizon blowout, digesting most of the gas within the four months after its release, according to a new study published online at ScienceExpress.
Genetically modified (GM) corn plants can reduce damage to other neighboring, unmodified crops too—and farmers who plant both types of crops are experiencing the economic benefits, researchers say this week in Science. This finding comes after William Hutchison from the University of Minnesota, along with colleagues from across the United States, studied the effects that genetically engineered corn has had on European corn borer moths in the United States over the years.
