  4. Mutations need help from evolution to cause cancerRead the original story w/Photo

    13 hrs ago | Science Daily

    In addition to DNA damage, cancer depends on the slow degradation of tissue that allows cancer cells to out-compete healthy cells, a new study shows. "We show that mutations, although necessary, cannot promote blood cancer development without an age-altered tissue microenvironment," the researchers write.

  8. Laparoscopic surgery for bladder cancer leads to good long-term cancer controlRead the original story w/Photo

    18 hrs ago | Science Daily

    Long-term survival rates following laparoscopic surgery for bladder cancer are comparable to those of open surgery, according to a study. The findings, which come from the largest study to date with long-term follow-up after this type of minimally invasive surgery, indicate that prospective randomized trials comparing these two bladder cancer surgeries are warranted.

  15. Biology trumps chemistry in open ocean: How phytoplankton assimilate...Read the original story

    Monday Nov 24 | Science Daily

    Scientists laid out a new framework based on in situ observations that will allow them to describe and understand how phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus, a key nutrient, in the ocean in ways that better reflect what is actually occurring in the marine environment. This is important because nutrient uptake is a property of ocean biogeochemistry, and in many regions controls carbon dioxide fixation, which ultimately can play a role in mitigating climate change.
