The penalty of having a sister -- why sibling sex matters for male saiga antelopes

Having a twin sister could put male saiga antelopes at a reproductive d...shed today. The study shows that male twins with a sister are born lighter than those with a brother, making them smaller than the optimal size for males. The...

Uncovering DNA's 'sweet' secret

... Just how nature arrived at this molecule and its sister molecule, RNA,remains one of the greatest - and potentially unsolvable - scientific mysteries. But Vanderbilt biochemist Martin Egli, Ph.D., isn't content to simplystudy these molecules as they are. He wants to know why they are the way they are. ...

Two central mysteries in genome inheritance solved at UCSD

...ted chromosome is comprised of a pair of identical sister chromatids, generated by the copying of the parental DNA strand. These pairs are held together during the early stages of cell division. Once all chromosomes properly connect to the spindle, the pairs are separated and sisters are pulled towards op...

Wolves are suffering less from inbreeding than expected

...ed. It varies between 0 and 100%. If a brother and sister are mating, their offspring will have an inbreeding coefficient of 25%. This is about the average level for the present wolf population in Scandinavia. And our analyses have shown that inbreeding is negative, inbred wolves produce less number of pups...

DNA traces evolution of extinct sabertooths and the American cheetah-like cat

...The analysis shows that the sabertooth cats were a sister group to the modern cats--that is, they diverged early on from the ancestors of modern cats and are not closely related to any living felid species. The phylogenetic tree drawn from the new data also shows that the American cheetah-like cat is genet...

UCR biochemist goes to Washington with high-protein corn

...r of flowers for every kernel. But then one of the sister flowers undergoes abortion, resulting in one flower for each kernel. Gallie's research group has developed technology that essentially rescues the aborted flower, resulting in two kernels that are fused together. "Despite the fusion, the kernels are ...

Envisat and ERS-2 reveal hidden side of Hurricane Rita

...e day Envisat acquired its ASAR image of Rita, its sister spacecraft ERS-2 also made complementary observations of the hurricane's underlying wind fields using its radar scatterometer. This instrument works by firing a trio of high-frequency radar beams down to the ocean, then analysing the pattern of bac...

Interestingly, those results have some parallels to the origin and subsequent evolution of human agriculture. Human agriculture is also believed to have originated in relatively favourable areas to which most...
