New Clues Add 40,000 Years to Age of Human Species

...Omo II—were once entombed in sediments on opposite sides of the Omo River in southern Ethiopia. By applying modern radiometric dating techniques and a careful study of sediments and fossils, the researchers linked the Omo hominids, true Homo sapiens, to a single period in time. “Some have considered Omo...

Researchers trace evolution to relatively simple genetic changes

Wrasses collected only 360 km apart along the Brazilian coast were genetically more distinct than were fish collected 4200 km...

A probe, not an echo

... transmitter and receiver, are mounted on opposite sides of a drum that spins as it rises around the object (which is suspended in water), creating a stack of tomographic image slices which visualization algorithms turn into 3D images.

Pair of cancer genes found to drive both cell migration and division

...like migrating cells - PIP3 levels are high on the sides that represent the 'fronts' of what will be two new cells, and they are low at the furrow, or what amounts to the back of the new cells," says Devreotes. In their experiments, cells without PTEN and PI3K couldn't regulate levels of PIP3, and they di...

Vitamin A's paradoxical role in influencing symmetry during embryonic development revealed

The action of retinoic acid makes sure that some of those cells ignore the left-right instructions and progress symmetrically. Belmonte compares the node to a doorway. "Before embryonic stem cells enter the node, they don't have an or...

We suspect that having the right amount of the p63 protein in the right cells at the right time creates a balance that enables organisms to live relatively...

Columbia scientists develop cancer terminator viruses
