Whole-Tree Logging May Not Hinder Plant Biodiversity

Michigan Technological University

When it comes to timber harvesting, removing the whole-tree—from stump to twigs—doesn’t reduce plant diversity any more than old-fashioned logging, which leaves tree branches behind in the woods.

GLUT5 Fluorescent Probe Fingerprints Cancer Cells

Michigan Technological University

Getting the results of a cancer biopsy can take up to two weeks. What if it could happen in 10 minutes? In two new papers, a team of chemists and engineers from Michigan Technological University lay the groundwork for cancer detection and diagnostics based on a fluorescent GLUT5 probe. Documented in the new research, a cancer's type and malignancy changes the GLUT5 activity in a cell, creating a detectable "fingerprint" of cancer.
