Neanderthal DNA contributes to genetic diversity, bringing a greater understanding of human evolution

Credit: C0 Public Domain The advent of DNA classification has given scientists a clearer view of the coherent evolution of evolution and web-like pathways taken by different organisms, separately and together. Tony Capra, associate professor of biological science, came up with new conclusions about the influence of Neanderthal DNA on certain genetic traits of modern humans. The article “Neanderthal introgression …

Two students saw an asteroid heading towards Earth – BGR

A newly detected asteroid was spotted by a couple of students in India. The two teenagers found the asteroid in images collected by a Hawaiian telescope. The asteroid is currently moving close to Mars, but that orbit will change and carry it over a close distance to Earth in nearly a million years. When I was 14, my biggest accomplishment …

New software predicts the fate of the cell

ScVelo revealed enhanced insights into pancreas development processes. Credit: Helmholtz Zentrum München Traditional single cell sequencing techniques help to reveal insights about cellular variations and functions – but they do so in static snapshots only rather than time films . This limitation makes it difficult to draw conclusions about the dynamics of cell formation and gene activity. The recently introduced …

Katie Mack: ‘Knowing how the universe will end is liberating’

Copyright copyright NASA Goddard Terms such as “heat death”, “big rip” and “vacuum decay” do not sound like everyone’s inviting. And they are not. They describe some of the theories scientists have about how our universe will die in a day. But when cosmologist Katie Mack thinks about the end of it all, it gives peace. “There’s about recognizing the …

A Grim Prediction Gets Ice Caps 5 Year. They Did Not Finish Long

Scientists do not always want to be right: take the warning team in a paper published in 2017 that St. Patrick Bay ice caps in Canada. NASA’s latest satellite image shows that their prediction came true, and even faster than they expected. Scientists from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder have previously …

There are Two Ways of a Frog. This Beetle chooses the Back Door.

“That’s the smoking gun evidence that they use their feet,” said Nora Moskowitz, who studies melting frogs at Stanford University but was not involved in the study. Dr Sugiura thinks Regimbartia beetles can use their legs to hold themselves and crawl through the gut, which can stretch a few inches – a difficult journey for a four or five -milimeter-long …

We Are All This Beetle, Escaping From The Other End Of The Frog

I … I … gorgeous! Photo: Shinji Sugiura / Kobe University Ultimately, science proves what we always know in our hearts to be true: There are two ways from a frog. (“I always say this,” said my colleague Madeleine Aggeler.) A new study published this week Current Biology, “Active Prey Escape From Predator Vent Via the Digestive Tract,” by Shinji …

Safer, long-term energy storage requires a focus on the interface of advanced materials

A forward-looking review encourages scientists to study electrode-ionic aggregation, which occurs at the interface of electrodes and electrolytes, when developing safer, more stable and efficient energy storage devices . Credit: Xuehang Wang / Drexel University Scientists looking for ways to improve the battery’s ability to hold longer, using advanced materials that are safe, stable and efficient, have decided that the …
