Striking traits seen only in males of some species – such as colorful peacock feathers or butterfly wings – are partly explained by gene behavior, research suggests. The findings aid understanding of the phenomenon, which can help animals attract mates, but also make them more vulnerable to predators. Researchers studied the genetics of the guppy fish, whose males are brightly colored compared with the dull brown of females. Researchers at the Universities of Edinburgh and Exeter use...

Onconova is planning a sideways step for its lead cancer drug rigosertib—with help from a research consortium—that could open up new opportunities in rare diseases. Rigosertib has reached the phase 3 testing stage for myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), although its progress through development has not been easy, punctuated with failed clinical trials in MDS and pancreatic cancer and the loss of Baxalta as its commercial partner last year....

A new discovery suggests that bacteria's ability to transfer genes, like those associated with antibiotic resistance, are governed by a previously unknown set of rules that are written in the DNA of the recipient.Dr. Heather Hendrickson, of Massey's Institute of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, made the discovery along with a team of scientists from the University of Pittsburgh in the United States, including senior author Professor Jeffrey Lawrence. She says horizontal gene transfer i...

In the air, beneath the ocean's surface, and on land, microbes are the minute but mighty forces regulating much of the planet's biogeochemical cycles. To better understand their roles, scientists work to identify these microbes and to determine their individual contributions. While advances in sequencing technologies have enabled researchers to access the genomes of thousands of microbes and make them publicly available, no similar shift has occurred with the task of assigning functions ...

Aging affects every living organism, but the molecular processes that contribute to aging remain a subject of debate. While many things contribute to the aging process, one common theme in animal aging is inflammation—and this may be amplified by a class of selfish genetic elements. The human genome is littered with selfish genetic elements—repetitive elements that do not seem to benefit their hosts, but instead seek only to propagate themselves by inserting new copies into their hos...

The behavior of people who remain committed to a choice, even when it is clear that an alternate choice would be a better option, has been a perplexing phenomenon to psychologists and economists. For example, people will continue to wait in the slow line at a grocery store, stick out an unhealthy relationship, or refuse to abandon an expensive, wasteful project all because such individuals have already invested time, effort, or money. This well-known cognitive phenomenon termed the "sunk co...
