African Bird Shows Signs of Evil Stepdad Behavior

19 hours ago − University of British Columbia
An African desert-dwelling male bird favours his biological sons and alienates his stepsons, suggests research published today in Biological Letters. "Nepotism has likely played a vital role in the evolution of family life in this species," said Martha Nelson-Flower, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia's faculty of forestry but formerly of the University of Cape Town, where she conducted the research. …

Two Key Proteins Preserve Vital Genetic Information

2 days ago − The Wistar Institute
PHILADELPHIA--(August 22, 2016)-- Cancer is often driven by various genetic mutations that are acquired through changes to a person's DNA over time. These alterations can occur at the chromosome level if the proteins are not properly organized and segregated as our cells divide and multiply. …
