Viruses support photosynthesis in bacteria

Added: 23.02.2017 23:01 | 0 views | 0 comments

Viruses propagate by infecting a host cell and reproducing inside. This not only affects humans and animals, but bacteria as well. This type of virus is called bacteriophage. They carry so called auxiliary metabolic genes in their genome, which are responsible for producing certain proteins that give the virus an advantage. Researchers have analyzed the structure of such a protein more closely. It appears to stimulate the photosynthesis of host bacteria.

The oldest fossilized giant penguin

Added: 23.02.2017 23:01 | 0 views | 0 comments

A recently discovered fossil of a giant penguin with a body length of around 150 centimeters has been described in a new article. The new find dates back to the Paleocene era and, with an age of approximately 61 million years, counts among the oldest penguin fossils in the world. The bones differ significantly from those of other discoveries of the same age and indicate that the diversity of Paleocene penguins was higher than previously assumed. The team of scientists therefore postulates that the evolution of penguins started much earlier than previously thought, probably already during the age of dinosaurs.

Stingless bees have their nests protected by soldiers

Although stingless bees do not have a sting to fend off enemies, they are nonetheless able to defend their hives against attacks. Only four years ago it was discovered that a Brazilian bee species, the Jatai bee, has a soldier caste. The slightly larger fighters guard the entrance to the nest and grip intruders with their powerful mandibles in the event of an attack. Now researchers have identified four further species which produce a special soldier caste to defend their nests.

Unlocking crop diversity by manipulating plant sex

Added: 23.02.2017 23:01 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have discovered a key gene that influences genetic recombination during sexual reproduction in wild plant populations. Adding extra copies of this gene resulted in a massive boost to recombination and diversity in plant offspring. This finding could enable plant breeders to unlock crop variation, improve harvests and help ensure future food security.

DSOGaming writes: "Quantum Break is one of the most demanding PC games that have been released recently. And to be honest, its spectacular lighting system and detailed characters somehow justify these requirements. Quantum Breaks lighting and global illumination effects are among the best weve seen in any game. However, at its time of release, the game lacked official SLI support. Well, not anymore as a workaround offering incredible SLI scaling has been found."
