Now, a collaborative study by two research groups at LMU's Biomedical Center, led by Axel Imhof (Professor of Molecular Biology) and Andreas Ladurner (Professor of Physiological Chemistry), has shown in the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster that such ...

Boost for non-animal toxicology testing - Royal Society of Chemistry


Royal Society of Chemistry
New results from the Tox21 initiative, a multi-centre project in the US, suggest that it should be possible to predict the toxicity of a compound by measuring how it interferes with a range of different processes in cultured cells. Potentially toxic ...

Port Botany doesn't need another expensive rail project -- here is the evidence - The Conversation AU


The Conversation AU
Every year, more than two million containers cross the docks at Sydney's Port Botany, a number forecast to triple over the next 15 years. To avoid putting even more trucks on Sydney's already congested roads, the NSW government plans to double the ...
