Marked divergence in inhalers’ carbon footprint

19 November, 2019 - Uppsala universitet

In a new study, researchers at Uppsala University compared the carbon footprint of two kinds of inhaler used for treating asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: dry powder inhalers and sprays containing propellants. The results show that treatment with spray inhalers has a carbon footprint 20 times greater than that of using dry powder inhalers.


New method takes analysis of genetic libraries to next level

18 November, 2019 - Uppsala universitet

Uppsala researchers have developed a new method for investigating dynamic processes in large genetic libraries. By using this method to study cell cycle regulation, they help paint a clearer picture of the elusive control mechanism. The study is published in the journal Nature Methods.


A genetic tug-of-war between the sexes begets variation

18 November, 2019 - Uppsala universitet

In species with sexual reproduction, no two individuals are alike and scientists have long struggled to understand why there is so much genetic variation. In a new study published in Nature Ecology & Evolution, a team of researchers from the University of Uppsala in Sweden now show that a genetic tug-of-war between the sexes acts to maintain variation.
