Genomic 'dark matter' of embryonic lungs controls proper development of airways

Posted: 18 Jun 2014 03:45 PM PDT

Hundreds of long non-coding RNAs expressed in developing and adult lungs have been identified by researchers. Many of these non-protein-coding RNAs in the lung regulate gene expression by opening and closing the DNA scaffolding on neighboring genes.

Where has all the soil gone? Focusing on soil loss important to researchers

Posted: 18 Jun 2014 01:39 PM PDT

During these times of high drought and potential dust storms (or torrential rain and flash flooding), focusing on soil loss is important. Soil erosion is expensive. It costs the United States about $44 billion per year. Preventing erosion means taking care of the soil. That means protecting it with mulch and plants, not plowing on steep slopes, and maximizing the amount of water that enters the soil while minimizing the water that runs over the soil
