Evolution can reconfigure gene networks to deal with environmental change

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers at the University of Birmingham have decoded the genetic mechanisms for adapting tiny water fleas to the increased phosphorus load in lakes. By mapping gene networks to the physiological responses of old and modern water fleas (Daphnia), researchers at the University's School of Biosciences have demonstrated a cluster of over 800 genes, many of which …

The modified CRISPR gene editing tool could improve the therapies for HIV and sickle cell disease

Credit: CC0 Public Domain City of Hope researchers may have found a way to sharpen the fastest, cheapest and most accurate gene editing technology, CRISPR-Cas9, to more successfully cut out unwanted genetic information. This improved cutting ability could someday accelerate potential therapies for HIV, sickle cell disease and possibly other immune diseases. "Our CRISPR-Cas9 design may be the difference between …

Climate change is changing the highland deer gene pool

image credits Getty Images A 45-year study found that red deer in the highlands developed due to climate change, the birth pattern of deer on the island of Rum. Warmer temperatures not only encourage deer to give birth earlier in the year, but they have also meant that the gene for the former rearing of deer has become more common. …

gene. David Petraeus: Meeting the Camp David Taliban with "symbolism would have been troubling," but Trump has rightly canceled

Former CIA Director-General David Petraeus [Ret.] said the symbolism of receiving Taliban officials at the Camp David presidential retreat would have been disturbing – but President Trump eventually made the right call. The President It was right to break off the summit on the mountain terrain near Thurmont, Maryland, especially considering the US is about to embark on the 18th …

gene. Mattis shoots effectively against Trump's bug

Some key phrases from a Wall Street Journal piece by General Jim Mattis, the former Secretary of Defense, serve as a not so veiled but so important warning to and about President Trump. If Trump does not listen, we should both listen and act responsibly to find a reasonable alternative to the re-election of this President. Mattis' essay, an adapted …

After the "CRISPR Babies" scandal, the senators demand guidelines for gene editing

W ASHINGTON – A bipartisan Senator trio presented a resolution on Monday highlighting their opposition to the experiments in China last year that led to the birth of the world's first genome-processed baby. The resolution by Sens Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) And Jack Reed (DR.I.) also reaffirmed their support for international groups working on guidelines for clinical use …
