Proponents of the technique, which was first tested nearly 20 years ago, regard it as more humane than the conventional methods of controlling wildlife populations, such as shooting, trapping, poisoning or viral diseases.

Phthalates now linked to fat, related health risks

Instead of making an incision, the no-scalpel technique uses a sharp instrument to puncture the skin. Advantages of puncturing rather than cutting the skin of the scrotum include less bleeding, bruising...

Penn researchers replace organ in adult mice using 'single-parent' stem cells

... cells - created from a single donor's eggs or two sperm - and, for the first time, successfully used them to repopulate a damaged organ with healthy cells in adult mice. Their findings demonstrate that single-parent stem cells can proliferate normally in an adult organ and could provide a less controver...

Genetic surprise confirms neglected 70-year-old evolutionary hypothesis

...ha, is one of the same genes that is essential for sperm motility in the flies, as well as in humans and other mammals. Masly's work shows a back door through which speciation can start. If the right genes jump around in the genome, a population can begin creating individuals that can't successfully mate ...

Queen bee promiscuity boosts hive health

Scientists discover role for dueling RNAs

Yeast spores withstand this harsh environment far more ably than the larger cells from which they originate. But in some cases, flipping the meiotic switch can be catastrophic.
