3-D Analysis of Dog Fossils Sheds Light on Domestication Debate

In an effort to settle the debate about the origin of dog domestication, a technique that uses 3-D scans of fossils is helping researchers determine the difference between dogs and wolves.

Genomic Recycling: Ancestral Genes Take On New Roles

Dr. Igor Ulitsky has found that ancient genes that lost their ability to make proteins were “recycled,” surviving across millennia – and species – by evolving to produce a type of RNA that regulates major biological processes. His findings could lead to treatments for a number of genetic diseases.

Laser-Free Method of Ion Cooling Has Range of Potential Uses

Prof. Daniel Zajfman's universal ion trap cools to a tenth of a degree above absolute zero. The new method does not depend on the type or the weight of the ion and, thus, might be used to investigate the properties of large biological molecules or nanoparticles, among other things.

How Bacteria Hinder Chemotherapy

Dr. Ravid Straussman and colleagues have discovered that bacteria not only live in pancreatic cancer, but are able to render a chemo drug ineffective. Fortunately, it appears that taking antibiotics allows the chemo to work again.

Mathematicians Ask: What’s in a Ripple?

When a fluid or a gas experiences a sudden disturbance, it often gives rise to a phenomenon known as an undular bore, consisting of rapid oscillations that spread. But how to describe what transpires? New mathematics research brings us closer to finding an answer.
