A genome-wide association study of same-sex sexual behavior identifies loci associated with human sexual orientation.
As a result of iron chemistry in impact-induced magma oceans, the oxidation state of early Earth evolved, leading to emission of more oxidized gases.
- Dynamical charge density fluctuations pervading the phase diagram of a Cu-based high-Tc superconductor
Resonant inelastic x-ray scattering reveals dynamic charge fluctuations in a cuprate at high temperatures.
Leguminous plant symbiotic bacteria use small RNAs to repress host plant gene expression and promote root nodule formation.
- Programmed chromosome fission and fusion enable precise large-scale genome rearrangement and assembly
Technologies to split, reorganize, and combine bacterial chromosomes to facilitate highly programmable genome engineering are explored.
Astronomical calculations reveal that a resonant transition in the Solar System occurred between 50 and 60 million years ago.
The actin-spectrin–based periodic membrane skeleton coordinates signal transduction in cultured mouse hippocampal neurons.
