International Life Science Companies Collaborate to Support Scientific Research
News Mar 28, 2007
Olympus Microscopy has partnered with the Nature Publishing Group to present the “Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection”.
This free compilation of articles from the portfolio of Nature Reviews journals has been carefully selected to support cell biologists using microscopy and fluorescent microscopy techniques in their research.
This partnership with the Nature Publishing Group is the latest in Olympus’s ongoing programme of activities in support of life science research.
The “Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection” is a special supplement focusing on recent advances in the complex and important field of fluorescence imaging.
Written by leading researchers it covers a broad cross-section of microscopy and fluorescence microscopy applications, from basic cell biology to cancer research, gene knockout studies and drug discovery.
As well as being freely available in a printed supplement, the Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection will also be accessible as a Cell Biology Web Focus on the Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology website, www.nature.com.nrm.
The Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection is available from April 5th, 2007.
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) look at large populations to find genes that contribute to common, multi-gene traits like height or obesity. These comprehensive studies frequently turn up large numbers of tiny genetic variations that occur more often in people who are tall, obese, etc. So which genes should scientists investigate further?READ MORE
In recent years, numerous studies have shown that people who don't get enough sleep are at greater risk of stroke and heart attack. A study found that people who sleep fewer than 7 hours per night have lower blood levels of three physiological regulators, or microRNAs, which influence gene expression and play a key role in maintaining vascular health.
