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. …

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 …
