    Alavian, Kambiz N.; Li, Hongmei; Collis, Leon P.; Bonanni, Laura; Zeng, Lu; Sacchetti, Silvio; Lazrove, Emma; Nabili, Panah; Flaherty, Benjamin; Graham, Morven; Chen, Yingbei; Messerli, Shanta M.; Mariggio, Maria A.; Rahner, Christoph; McNay, Ewan; Shore, Gordon; Smith, Peter J. S.; Hardwick, J. Marie; Jonas, Elizabeth A. (2011-06)
    Anti-apoptotic BCL-2 family proteins such as Bcl-xL protect cells from death by sequestering apoptotic molecules, but also contribute to normal neuronal function. We find in hippocampal neurons that Bcl-xL enhances the ...

    The rhizosphere is a hotbed of microbial activity in ecosystems, fueled by carbon compounds from plant roots. Basic questions about the location and dynamics of plant-spurred microbial growth in the rhizosphere are difficult ...
  • Beyond leaf color : comparing camera-based phenological metrics with leaf biochemical, biophysical, and spectral properties throughout the growing season of a temperate deciduous forest 

    Yang, Xi; Tang, Jianwu; Mustard, John F. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-03-31)
    Plant phenology, a sensitive indicator of climate change, influences vegetation-atmosphere interactions by changing the carbon and water cycles from local to global scales. Camera-based phenological observations of the ...
  • Bidirectional incompatibility among divergent Wolbachia and incompatibility level differences among closely related Wolbachia in Nasonia 

    Bordenstein, Seth R.; Werren, John H. (2007-03-07)
    Most insect groups harbor obligate bacterial symbionts from the alphaproteobacterial genus Wolbachia. These bacteria alter insect reproduction in ways that enhance their cytoplasmic transmission. One of the most common ...
  • A bifunctional DNA binding region in Tn5 transposase 

    Gradman, Richard J.; Ptacin, Jerod L.; Bhasin, Archna; Reznikoff, William S.; Goryshin, Igor Y. (Blackwell, 2007-12-16)
    Tn5 transposition is a complicated process that requires the formation of a highly ordered protein–DNA structure, a synaptic complex, to catalyse the movement of a sequence of DNA (transposon) into a target DNA. Much is ...

    Albertin, Caroline B.; Simakov, Oleg; Mitros, Therese; Wang, Z. Yan; Pungor, Judit R; Edsinger-Gonzalez, Eric; Brenner, Sydney; Ragsdale, Clifton W.; Rokhsar, Daniel S (2014-12-19)
  • Biodiversity informatics : organizing and linking information across the spectrum of life 

    Sarkar, Indra Neil (2007-04-08)
    Biological knowledge can be inferred from three major levels of information: molecules, organisms, and ecologies. Bioinformatics is an established field that has made significant advances in the development of systems and ...
  • Biogeography and ecology of the rare and abundant microbial lineages in deep-sea hydrothermal vents 

    Anderson, Rika E.; Sogin, Mitchell L.; Baross, John A. (2014-11)
    Environmental gradients generate countless ecological niches in deep-sea hydrothermal vent systems, which foster diverse microbial communities. The majority of distinct microbial lineages in these communities occur in ...
  • Biogeography of bacterioplankton in lakes and streams of an arctic tundra catchment 

    Crump, Byron C.; Adams, Heather E.; Hobbie, John E.; Kling, George W. (Ecological Society of America, 2007-06)
    Bacterioplankton community composition was compared across 10 lakes and 14 streams within the catchment of Toolik Lake, a tundra lake in Arctic Alaska, during seven surveys conducted over three years using denaturing ...
  • Biological nomenclature terms for facilitating communication in the naming of organisms 

    David, John; Garrity, George M.; Greuter, Werner; Hawksworth, David L.; Jahn, Regine; Kirk, Paul M.; McNeill, John; Michel, Ellinor; Knapp, Sandra; Patterson, David J.; Tindall, Brian J.; Todd, Jonathan A.; Tol, Jan van; Turland, Nicholas J. (Pensoft, 2012-05-08)
    A set of terms recommended for use in facilitating communication in biological nomenclature is presented as a table showing broadly equivalent terms used in the traditional Codes of nomenclature. These terms are intended ...
  • Biological versus electronic adaptive coloration : how can one inform the other? 

    Kreit, Eric; Mathger, Lydia M.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Dennis, Patrick B.; Naik, Rajesh R.; Forsythe, Eric; Heikenfeld, Jason (2011-11)
    Adaptive reflective surfaces have been a challenge for both electronic paper (e-Paper) and biological organisms. Multiple colours, contrast, polarization, reflectance, diffusivity and texture must all be controlled ...
  • Biomass and toxicity responses of poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) to elevated atmospheric CO2 : reply
