Human evolution was not just the score, but how it was played

Human evolution was not just the score, but how it was played

A team of Duke researchers identified a group of human DNA sequences leading to changes in brain development, digestion and immunity that appear to have evolved rapidly after our family line split from that of chimpanzees, but before our split from Neanderthals. Our brains are bigger and our guts are shorter than our monkey peers. …

Pacific islands are fighting for their existence before rising sea levels engulf them

Pacific islands are fighting for their existence before rising sea levels engulf them

Despite contributing less than 0.03% of total global carbon emissions, the Pacific islands are on the front lines of the climate crisis. Entire countries could be submerged under water in the next two to three decades. How do these island states fight for survival? A country is more than its land. A country is its …

Researchers discover how phage resistance contributes to the emergence of dominant strains of Salmonella

Researchers discover how phage resistance contributes to the emergence of dominant strains of Salmonella

Researchers from the Quadram Institute and the University of East Anglia have discovered how resistance has contributed to the emergence of dominant strains of Salmonella. In addition to antimicrobial resistance, bacteriophage resistance can give these insects a boost, at least in the short term. With the rise in antimicrobial resistance, the search for new ways …

The historic failure of COP27 puts the future of the planet in the hands of brands | LBBOnline

As COP 27 continues the age-old debate over whether wealthier countries should pay climate compensation to those most affected, it is brands that have the real power to bring about immediate and meaningful change. With highly engaged global audiences and ridiculously frequent consumer transactions, global brands have more ability to effect change than governments struggling …

MIT scientists invent technology to replace broken genes or download new ones - The Boston Globe

MIT scientists invent technology to replace broken genes or download new ones – The Boston Globe

“This is a major innovation,” said Maura McGrail, a biologist who uses gene editing to study brain development and disease in animal models at Iowa State University. “It really opens up our ability to edit the genome in ways that can be useful for biomedical research as well as gene therapy.” Such treatments are at …
