  • Loving the sweet enemy

    French fries, cream cake, chips and candy bars make you fat and unhealthy. Still, we cannot keep our hands off it. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research in Cologne have now found an explanation for this: foods that are rich in both fats and carbohydrates have a particularly more

  • Scientists watch bacteria 'harpoon' DNA to speed their evolution

    Indiana University scientists have made the first direct observation of a key step in the process that bacteria use to rapidly evolve new traits, including antibiotic resistance. Using methods invented at IU, researchers recorded the first images of bacterial appendages -- over 10,000 times thinner more

  • Faster genome evolution methods to transform yeast for industrial biotechnology

    Scientists have created a new way of speeding up the genome evolution of baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the same yeast people use for bread and beer production, to develop a synthetic yeast strain that can be transformed on demand for use in various industrial applications. A research team more

Did Comets Kickstart Life on Earth?

That's right. Comets may have helped seed life on Earth. Far out, right? Sarah Everts has the chemical clues that back up this out-of-this-world hypothesis. more

The Race to Crack the Genetic Code

How was the code of DNA cracked? How did it confirm the theory of evolution? And why did life evolve the way it did? Matthew Cobb unravels the tangled story.Matthew Cobb is Professor of Zoology and a senior lecturer in animal behaviour at the University of Manchester. After spending some time re ... more

  • The influence of human disturbance on wildlife nocturnality

    Rapid expansion of human activity has driven well-documented shifts in the spatial distribution of wildlife, but the cumulative effect of human disturbance on the temporal dynamics of animals has not been quantified. We examined anthropogenic effects on mammal diel activity patterns, conducting a m more

  • Scaling of human brain size

    What makes humans unique as a species and as individuals? Our uniqueness stems from language, tool use, reasoning, and other cognitive abilities that are largely mediated by specialized regions of the cerebral cortex. These regions of higher cognitive function have expanded disproportionately during more

  • Normative brain size variation and brain shape diversity in humans

    Brain size variation over primate evolution and human development is associated with shifts in the proportions of different brain regions. Individual brain size can vary almost twofold among typically developing humans, but the consequences of this for brain organization remain poorly understood. U more
