Doctors should stop prescribing antibiotics for the common cold, review advises

...fits do not outweigh the risks, according to a new systematic review of current evidence. "Antibiotics appear to have no benefit in the treatment of acute upper respiratory tract infections," conclude Dr. Bruce Arroll and Dr. Timothy Kenealy of the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

New technique could alter field of mouse genetics

...function of all of those genes. The strategy is as systematic as the genome sequencing projects -- mutate each gene, observe the consequences, and investigate the molecular mechanisms. In the past two decades, only about 3,000 of the estimated 25,000 genes shared by mice and humans have been analyzed in detail,...

"Our approach presents a systematic way to uncover potential mismatches between the statistical properties of the natural environment and the coding strategy of sensory neurons. In turn, these discrepancies might improve our understanding of the evolutionary design of the specific sens...
