Tumors contain thousands of genetic changes, but only a few are actually cancer-causing. A quicker way to identify these driver mutations could lead to more targeted cancer treatments.
The genome is from a male who was likely in his late thirties when the historic Mount Vesuvius’ eruption occurred. The analyses suggest he is related to the diverse Imperial Roman population of the time, and that he may have suffered from spinal tuberculosis.
And how do scientists go about answering that question?
Endothermy was widespread among both avian and non-avian dinosaurs, a study suggests, so the metabolic strategy is unlikely to account for birds’ survival through the mass extinction event that wiped out their dinosaur cousins.
Arboreal salamanders use skydiving techniques to avoid smashing to the ground after a fall.
Researchers find that tissue-resident memory T cells in the corneas of mice engender a lasting immune response.
The first high-quality genome for a marine isopod may shed light on how this group of crustaceans adapted to the deep, dark depths of the ocean.
A new scholarship program will provide 150 early-career scientists committed to advancing diversity, inclusion, and equity up to $8.6 million each.
Fogel mined information from isotopes to explore modern and ancient ecosystems, climatic changes, and evolution.
A new method has allowed researchers to conduct the first gene knock-out and knock-in edits on cockroaches and may extend to many other insects.
