Massive sex study disproves common assumption about human mating habits

The idea that correlation does not imply causation is a fundamental caveat in epidemiological research. A classic example involves a hypothetical link between ice cream sales and drownings. Instead of an increase in ice cream consumption causing more people to drown, it is plausible that a third variable (summer weather) increases the appetite for ice …

Learning Mitigate Genetic Drift – Scientific Reports

Genetic drift describes the random fluctuations in allelic diversity in a population. In this paper, we estimated that a systematic increase in organisms’ chances of survival in response to a random source of mortality, e.g., learning from experience, attenuates genetic drift (decreasing number of alleles) even when overall death rates remain the same. same. To …

Why India struggles with low adoption rates – caste, class to genetics

An estimated 29.6 million stranded, orphaned and abandoned children live in India, of whom only 4,000 are adopted each year. While thousands of prospective parents are waiting to adopt in India, there is still a stigma associated with adoption that deters many. A social movement must develop so that adoption is considered before other alternatives, …

Human evolution was not just a score, but how it was played: Research | Health

A group of human DNA sequences that appear to have evolved rapidly after our family line split from that of chimpanzees, but before our split from Neanderthals, have been discovered by a team of Duke scientists. These sequences are thought to be responsible for changes in brain development, digestion and immunity. Compared to our monkey …

Greater genetic diversity is needed in human pluripotent stem cell models – Nature Communications

Although the need for more diverse hPSC resources is clear, significant challenges remain in expanding cell collections and implementing these resources in the laboratory. First, it is critical to recognize that current efforts toward greater inclusion exist within a historical context of discrimination, where actions as well as inactions have eroded trust in scientific and …

Unprecedented detail: researchers capture how genes fold and function

This technique is the most complete to date for studying the shape of genes. The new technique is “like upgrading the Hubble to the James Webb”. A new imaging technique captures the three-dimensional architecture of the human genome in unprecedented detail, showing how individual genes fold at the level of nucleosomes, the fundamental units that …

Research: AI adapts artificial DNA for future drug development | Sciences-Environment

With the help of AI, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have succeeded in designing synthetic DNA that controls the protein production of cells. The technology can contribute to the development and production of vaccines, drugs for serious illnesses, as well as alternative dietary proteins much faster and at significantly lower costs than …
