    In search of an explanation for some of the greenest waters ever seen in coastal Antarctica and their possible link to some of the fastest melting glaciers and declining summer sea ice, the Amundsen Sea Polynya International ...
  • Chadwick, William W.; Butterfield, David A.; Embley, Robert W.; Tunnicliffe, Verena; Huber, Julie A.; Nooner, Scott L.; Clague, David A. (Oceanography Society, 2010-03)
    Axial Seamount is a hotspot volcano superimposed on the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JdFR) in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. Due to its robust magma supply, it rises ~ 800 m above the rest of JdFR and has a large elongate summit ...
  • Podar, Mircea; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Huang, Hon-Ren; Perlman, Philip S.; Sogin, Mitchell L. (American Society for Microbiology, 2002-12)
    Group II introns are catalytic RNAs and mobile retrotransposable elements known to be present in the genomes of some nonmarine bacteria and eukaryotic organelles. Here we report the discovery of group II introns in a ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Yoon, Hwan Su; Grant, Jessica; Tekle, Yonas I.; Wu, Min; Chaon, Benjamin C.; Cole, Jeffrey C.; Logsdon, John M.; Patterson, David J.; Bhattacharya, Debashish; Katz, Laura A. (BioMed Central, 2008-01-18)
    Our understanding of the eukaryotic tree of life and the tremendous diversity of microbial eukaryotes is in flux as additional genes and diverse taxa are sampled for molecular analyses. Despite instability in many analyses, ...
  • Alliegro, Mark C. (2011-01-03)
    The presence of nucleic acids in centrosomes and the spindle have been proposed, observed, and reported since the 1950s. Why did the subject remain, perhaps even until today, such a controversial issue? The explanation ...
  • Prabhu, Anjali; Morrison, Hilary G.; Martinez, Charles R.; Adam, Rodney D. (2006-12-04)
    Giardia trophozoites are polyploid and have five chromosomes. The chromosome homologues demonstrate considerable size heterogeneity due to variation in the subtelomeric regions. We used clones from the genome project with ...
  • Kamennaya, Nina A.; Post, Anton F. (2010-10-14)
    Cyanobacteria of the genera Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus are the most abundant photosynthetic organism on Earth occupying a key position at the base of marine food webs. The cynS gene that encodes cyanase was identified ...
