CU-Boulder, biotech firm team up on python project in search for human cardiac therapeutics
Date:8/25/2008

Burmese python genome and also has raised some financial capital for the venture. In addition, Leinwand's colleagues at the University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus are analyzing python gene samples for Hiberna.

Hiberna was founded in 2006 by Tom Marr, who has studied Alaskan mammals that exhibit extraordinary physiological adaptations relevant to human health. One of Marr's star study subjects has been the Arctic ground squirrel, which has the ability to drop it's body temperature to below freezing and reduce its heart rate from 200 beats a minute to just two beats per minute during hibernation.

"There are some striking examples of extreme adaptations by animals in the wild, and I think it's a good idea from a biomedical standpoint to take a closer look at them," Leinwand said. The impetus for her python project came from a 1998 Nature paper by UCLA evolutionary biologist and Pulitzer-prize winning author Jared Diamond on extreme physiological regulation adaptations by pythons.
