Northern New Mexico Forest Restoration Project Includes Wildlife Study

Areas in the Northern New Mexico Jemez Mountains and Valles Caldera National Preserve have been through prescribed burns or forest thins to allow for a less dense canopy, so new grasses and shrubs may grow and so wildfires will be less destructive. The treatments are part of the Southwest Jemez Collaborative Landscape Restoration Project.

How Does a Cell Maintain its Identity During Replication?

ZaretPalozolaSciencecellimageSept2017.jpg

Prior to cell division, chromosomes are seemingly a jumbled mess. Researchers have long assumed that genes become “silent” during cell division, not being transcribed into proteins or regulatory molecules. This has left open the question of how genes get properly re-activated after cell division. Now, researchers have found that gene expression actually continues during cell replication.

SLAC-Led Project Will Use Artificial Intelligence to Prevent or Minimize Electric Grid Failures

HiRes.jpg

A project led by the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory will combine artificial intelligence with massive amounts of data and industry experience from a dozen U.S. partners to identify places where the electric grid is vulnerable to disruption, reinforce those spots in advance and recover faster when failures do occur.
