The findings, just published in the journal Science, identify a gene involved in plant stress responses that also has a duel role in communication between the chloroplast and nucleus of cells. The correct function of this process is integral to plant function ... [full story]

There were great prizefighters before, such as John L. Sullivan and Jack Dempsey, and after, such as Mohammad Ali, but none quite commanded the respect and affection of the American public as Joe Louis, who reigned as heavyweight champion for almost 12 years, from 1937 to 1949, defending his title 25 times. Known universally (and politically incorrectly) as The Brown Bomber, his fame crossed color lines to make him an outstanding national hero, appreciated for ... [full story]

The Saab 9-3 SportCombi is a well-built European import that is inspiring to drive and treads lightly on the planet and your bank account. Its only fault is that it may leave too small of a footprint for a big family.   SAAB 9-3 SPORTCOMBI - The Saab 9-3 SportCombi has no rooftop luggage rails to betray the design. And the driving experience is light and lithe, anything but the perception of a wagon. CNS Photo ... [full story]

The map will allow researchers to narrow their focus to identify specific genes that control the seasonal development of animals.
