From the database of
Essential Science IndicatorsSM, this list of Emerging
Research Fronts has been generated by a comparison of the data sets for the
current period of January 2003-December 31, 2008, and the previous period
of November 2002-October 31, 2008 (sliding 6-year period). Of the 6,956
Research Fronts in the January 2003-December 31, 2008 file, a total of 687
(11%) were new.

Research Front Name
SUSTAINABLE WINTER WHEAT; SOIL RESILIENCE; SOIL WATER
REGIME; SUSTAINABLE SOIL TILLAGE SYSTEMS
Nitrogen balances and the behavior of surplus nitrogen in
the soil-plant system.
Screening for strains defective in two defined multigenic
processes (twitching motility and prototrophic growth)
identified mutants corresponding to nearly all genes
CELL REGULATORY SYSTEMS; COMPLEX CELLULAR SYSTEMS; PROTEIN
INTERACTION DOMAINS; SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION
Regulation of many different cellular processes requires
the use of protein interaction domains to direct the
association of polypeptides with one another and with
phospholipids, small molecules, or nucleic acids.
