UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

...ons below the sea floor may most closely mimic the environment when life began. "There is a great deal of interest in the microbes of the Earth's crust because the strategies by which they survive may be similar to the earliest strategies of life on Earth, and perhaps also on other planetary bodies," said Rache...

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...t doesn't cause tumors directly, but it creates an environment which is ripe for cancer to start." Because precursor cells in the colon's lining had been identified as a likely starting point for tumors, Feinberg and his team tossed a cancer-causing genetic mutation into the mix. The IGF2 mice were crossed with...
