Immune Cell Swarming Behavior Unraveled
Using specialized microscopy for the real-time visualization of immune cell dynamics in living tissues, researchers have revealed how immune cells coordinate their swarming behavior to eliminate pathogens effectively together.
Accurate Accounting of Corn Ethanol's Environmental Footprint
For the most accurate accounting of a product's environmental impact, scientists look at the product's entire life cycle, from cradle to grave of which greenhouse gas emissions are a key component. For corn ethanol, most greenhouse gas emissions can be mapped to the fuel's production, transportation, and combustion, but a large portion of the greenhouse gas calculation can be traced right back to the farm.
