He and the other members of the international sequencing team found that there are more protein coding genes in the organism than they had thought and nearly twic...

Gap-climbing fruit flies reveal components of goal-driven behaviors

...back, and tiptoe. Studying the underlying control principles and neuronal circuits in invertebrates rather than in mice or cats involves fewer ethical problems and is less-expensive research. Using noninvasive neurogenetic techniques for the analysis of the underlying motor-control system, Pick and Strauss sh...

Fundamental discovery -- Bone fracture
