Bacteria could be rich source for making terpenes  Bacteria could be a rich source of terpenes, the natural compounds common in plants and fungi that are used to make drugs, food additives, perfumes, and other products, a new study suggests. The work also suggests that there may be many new terpene products as yet undiscovered hiding in the genomes of bacteria.   http://bit.ly/1rvQ4zh

New research at Brown University and in Japan suggests bacteria could be a rich source of terpenes, the natural compounds common in plants and fungi that are used to make drugs, food additives, perfumes, and other products.

Strong neighborhood ties can help reduce gun violence:     The bonds that tie a neighborhood together can help shield community members from gun violence, according to new findings. "Violence results in chronic community-level trauma and stress, and undermines health, capacity, and productivity in these neighborhoods," said the study's lead author. "Police and government response to the problem has focused on the victim or the criminal. Our study focuses on ...  http://bit.ly/1wYiRgw

"Mechanics of cells' long-range communication modeled by researchers"  Interdisciplinary research is showing how cells interact over long distances within fibrous tissue, like that associated with many diseases of the liver, lungs and other organs. By developing mathematical models of how the collagen matrix that connects cells in tissue stiffens, the researchers are providing insights into the pathology of fibrosis, cirrhosis of the liver and certain cancers.  http://bit.ly/1zdD8jY

"Dirty pool: Soil's large carbon stores could be freed by increased CO2, plant growth"  An increase in human-made carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could initiate a chain reaction between plants and microorganisms that would unsettle one of the largest carbon reservoirs on the planet -- soil. Researchers developed the first computer model to show at a global scale the complex interaction between carbon, plants and soil.  http://bit.ly/1vD59LO

"Genetic study sheds light on how mosquitoes transmit malaria"  Just in time for Christmas, SFU computing science professor Richard Zhang reveals how to print a 3D Christmas tree efficiently and with zero material waste, using the world’s first algorithm for automatically decomposing a 3D object into what are called pyramidal parts.  A pyramidal part has a flat base with the remainder of the shape forming upwards over the base with no overhangs, much like a pyramid.   http://bit.ly/1A4U0r4

A new printer algorithm claims to provide super-efficient printing of Christmas trees with zero material waste, and also promises a way to produce accurate molds for casting chocolate Santas and reindeer too.

'July effect' does not impact stroke outcomes, according to new study  Patients with strokes caused by blood clots -known as acute ischemic strokes- who were admitted in July had similar outcomes compared to patients admitted any other month, according to a new study. The findings challenge concerns about the possibility of lower quality of care and the potential risk of poorer outcomes in teaching hospitals when new medical residents start each July - sometimes called the 'July effect.'

Whole-genome sequencing can be used to identify patients' risk for hereditary cancer, researchers have demonstrated. This is the first study that has used whole-genome sequencing to evaluate a series of 258 cancer patients' genomes to improve the ability to diagnose cancer-predisposing mutations, researchers say.

Taking the grunt work out of web development  A new programming language automatically coordinates interactions between Web page components. The language is called Ur/Web, and it lets developers write Web applications as self-contained programs. The language's compiler -- the program that turns high-level instructions into machine-executable code -- then automatically generates the corresponding XML code ...

A Web page today is the result of a number of interacting components—like cascading style sheets, XML code, ad hoc database queries, and JavaScript functions. For all but the most rudimentary sites, keeping track of how .

Searching for a dark light  A new experiment at Jefferson Lab is on the hunt for dark photons, hypothetical messengers of an invisible universe.  The matter we know accounts for less than 5 percent of the universe; the rest is filled with invisible dark matter and dark energy. Scientists working on a new experiment to be conducted at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Virginia hope to shed light on some of those cosmic unknowns.   http://bit.ly/1yhmZV9

World Record for Compact Particle Accelerator  Using one of the most powerful lasers in the world, researchers have accelerated subatomic particles to the highest energies ever recorded from a compact accelerator.  The team, from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab), used a specialized petawatt laser and a charged-particle gas called plasma to get the particles up to speed.  http://1.usa.gov/1rv3aN7

CROWN ETHERS FLATTEN IN GRAPHENE FOR STRONG, SPECIFIC BINDING  Ethers—simple organic molecules in which an oxygen atom bridges two carbon atoms—are the chemical building blocks of commonplace products including many solvents, propellants, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Link them together in large molecular rings and they become scientific royalty—crown ether molecules, whose development led in large part to the 1987 Nobel Prize in chemistry.   http://1.usa.gov/1v531My
