3D Printing Helps Injured Turtle.  +LabRoots, Inc 
While humans are used to enjoying a nice boat ride, the aquatic life surrounding the boat ends up having to put up with all of the consequences that we inflict on the environment. For one unlucky sea turtle, this meant having part of its face permanently mutilated by the propeller of a boat. As depressing as it sounds, this isn’t the first case of a boat propeller harming aquatic life. The turtle was found in an injured and nearly life...

Long Term Memory functions in the brain.  +LabRoots, Inc 
Memory is one of the more complex functions of the human brain. Leaving alone the debate about the accuracy of memory and the perceptual and psychological aspects of it, for purposes of this article let’s focus simply on the human brain’s ability to store and process multiple information threads simultaneously. That was what a research team at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology used to construct an electronic multi-state memory cell a...

Tumor cells themselves are contagious—that the cells can spread from one animal to another in the ocean. +LabRoots, Inc 
Outbreaks of leukemia that have devastated some populations of soft-shell clams along the east coast of North America for decades can be explained by the spread of cancerous tumor cells from one clam to another. Researchers call the discovery, reported in the Cell Press journal Cell on April 9, 2015, "beyond surprising." "The evidence indicates that the tumor cells themselves are contagious—that the cells can spread from one animal to another ...

Watch video webcast now "More from Less-High Quality from Low-Quality Samples" by Andrew Barry, Director, Product Development & Marketing, Broad Institute Genomics Platform.  +LabRoots, Inc 
The continued growth of DNA sequencing as a fundamental data output has driven the need for the ability to generate high quality data from an increasing breadth of diminishing primary sample inputs. As researchers and clinicians continue to develop associations between nucleic acid variants and disease and treatment response mechanisms, it has become increasingly important to maximize the data yield from available sample materials. The Broad I...

Sucker Fish the answer to better surgical instruments? +LabRoots, Inc 
A sticky little sucker fish in Puget Sound may be the answer to better designs in surgical instruments, biomedical devices and even radio tags for aquatic creatures. Research on the Northern Clingfish was presented recently at the Adhesive and Sealant Council's spring convention and the possibilities of harnessing the suction power of this tiny fish for medical and environmental use was seen as a breakthrough in the search for methods of atta...

An octopus will not go down without a fight, but most Koreans think eating live octopus is the way to build strength and stamina. +LabRoots, Inc 
It has a big, bulbous head, beady black eyes, and eight squirming tentacles. It's called the octopus... but some people would also call it dinner. Even while it's still alive! Some people believe eating live octopus gives strength and stamina, although it could be extremely dangerous. Octopus have deadly tentacles that can suction to your mouth and throat, causing you to choke and die.
