DNA Shows A Mother Was Also Her Daughter’s Uncle – How Scientists Solved This Medical Mystery

How can a paternity test suggest that a mother is also the father of her daughter? The answer to this medical mystery, sparked by a puzzling paternity test result, is “When the genes of a missing twin brother live in the mother’s DNA.” The finding, which genetics experts reported earlier this month, suggests such human …

Warmer Arctic Ocean leads to more snowfall further south, new model shows

Warmer Arctic Ocean leads to more snowfall further south, new model shows

An increasingly warm, ice-free Arctic Ocean has, in recent decades, led to more humidity in higher latitudes. This moisture is carried south by cyclonic weather systems where it precipitates as snow, influencing the global hydrological cycle and many Earth systems that depend on it (Illustration: Tomonori Sato). 1 credit New model explains that water evaporating …

Physics Study Shows Sheep Flocks Alternate Their Leader and Achieve Collective Intelligence

Credit: Luis Gómez-Nava, Richard Bon and Fernando Peruani. The collective movement of animals in a group is a fascinating research topic for many scientists. Understanding these collective behaviors can sometimes inspire the development of strategies to promote positive social change, as well as technologies that mimic nature. Many studies describe flocking behavior as a self-organizing …
