Scientists find gene for love of the sea

What did Thor Heyerdahl, Captain Ahab, and Odysseus have in common? They all may have shared a common variant of a gene for love...

Neuroscientists find overlooked brain area is an important locus of depression

Cold Spring Harbor, NY -- A team of neuroscientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and UC San Diego (UCSD) has collected evidence suggesting that a previously overlooked portion of the brain could be a ...

Transcriptome analysis, organ culture methods featured in Cold Spring Harbor Protocols

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. (Mon., Jan. 3, 2011) -- New technologies and methods are spurring a renaissance in the study of organogenesis. Organogenesis, essentially the process through which a group of cells becomes a functioning organ, has important...

CSHL scientists show in unprecedented detail how cortical nerve cells form...

Cold Spring Harbor, NY-- Newly published research led by Professor Z. Josh Huang, Ph.D., of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) sheds important new light on how neurons in the developing brain make connections with one another. This activity, calle...

CSHL study finds that 2 non-coding RNAs trigger formation of a...

Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. -- The nucleus of a cell, which houses the cell's DNA, is also home to many structures that are not bound by a membrane but nevertheless exist as distinct compartments. A team of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) scienti...

Imaging in depth: 3-dimensional microscopy featured in Cold Spring Harbor Protocols

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. (Mon., Nov. 1, 2010) -- Imaging has rapidly become a defining tool of the current era in biological research. But finding the right method and optimizing it for data collection can be a daunting process, even for an establi...

Optical technique reveals unnexpected complexity in mammalian olfactory coding

Cold Spring Harbor, NY -- A team co-led by neuroscientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has shed light -- literally -- on circuitry underlying the olfactory system in mammals, giving us a new view of how that system may pull off some of i...

Mice that ‘smell’ light could help us better understand olfaction

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Harvard University neurobiologists have created mice that can "smell" light, providing a potent new tool that could help researchers better understand the neural basis of olfaction. The work, described this week in the journal ...

Cold Spring Harbor Protocols features chromosomal rearrangement, gene copy number methods

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. (Wed., Sept. 1, 2010) -- A cell devotes a significant amount of effort to maintaining the stability of its genome, preventing the sorts of chromosomal rearrangements characteristic of many cancers. Assays that measure the r...

Congressman, CSHL president urge quick action to reverse judicial embryonic stem...

Cold Spring Harbor, NY -- Against a backdrop of some of the world's most sophisticated biological research labs, Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington) this morning issued a challenge to his colleagues in Congress: immediately upon their return from summ...
