Credit: Andy Wood, British Antarctic Survey Staff at British Antarctic Survey (BAS) are following the journeys of White-chinned Petrel fledglings as they make their first journeys over the South Atlantic Ocean in search of food. The birds have been fitted with small satellite transmitters and the location data are processed at […]

Соя может быть использована для очистки разливов сырой нефти

Соя может быть использована для очистки разливов сырой нефти

  Если вы изучали этикетки с компонентами на упаковке пищевых продуктов, вы, вероятно, заметили, что соевый лецитин содержится большом количестве продуктов, начиная от масла и заканчивая шоколадом. А не так давно ученые обнаружили еще один, потенциально эффективный способ использования этого вещества – для диспергирования разливов сырой нефти. Проведенное ими исследование показало, что соевый лецитин может […]

Cutting-edge tool helps predict impact of invasive species

Cutting-edge tool helps predict impact of invasive species

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have published results of a powerful new tool that could give ecologists new ways of tackling problems posed by deadly invasive species like Asian carp and Zebra mussels. Biology professors Heidi Swanson and Michael Power and Statistics and Actuarial Science professor Martin Lysy have created a new statistical tool […]

Arges: OMV Petrom, amendata pentru poluarea unui rau

Garda de Mediu Arges a amendat cu 100.000 de lei compania OMV Petrom, iar Administratia Bazinala de Apa Arges Vedea a sanctionat acelasi operator cu 35.000 de lei, dupa ce raul Cotmeana a fost poluat pe o lungime de 12 kilometri din cauza unei avarii la o magistrala de transport titei. Potrivit unei informari date […]

Супермаркеты будут отдавать нераспроданные продукты питания на благотворительность

В рамках программы по решению двойной проблемы пищевых отходов и бедности, во Франции недавно принят новаторский закон, который обязывает крупные супермаркеты жертвовать непроданные продукты питания на благотворительность, к примеру, отдавать их на корм для животных. В противном случае на владельцев супермаркетов будет наложен штраф до 75 тысяч евро (в эквиваленте 82324 долларов США) и наказание […]

Autorizarea fabricii de la Reci continua in mod nelegal

Fabrica de cherestea de la Reci a fost construita de Schweighofer Holzindustrie fara a se realiza o evaluare a impactului asupra mediului (EIM). In schimb, proiectul companiei a inclus si construirea unei centrale de cogenerare, pentru care a existat procedura EIM. In continuare, fabrica de prelucrare a lemnului ar urma sa prelucreze anual aproximativ 1.000.000 […]

Chinese researchers present de novo assembly of a haplotype-resolved diploid genome

Chinese researchers present de novo assembly of a haplotype-resolved diploid genome

Researchers from BGI reported the most complete haploid-resolved diploid genome (HDG) sequence based on de novo assembly with NGS technology and the pipeline developed lays the foundation for de novo assembly of genomes with high levels of heterozygosity. The latest study was published online today in Nature Biotechnology. The human genome is diploid, and knowledge […]
