Beings Less and Less Dependent on Parents to Exist Washington, D.C., April 10, 2014 (Zenit.org) Denise Hunnell, MD | 0 hits Both the 1932 novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and the 1997 science fiction movie Gattaca are classified as dystopias because they depict societies riddled with misery, tragedy, and a dehumanizing culture.
You probably wouldn’t guess it, but some of the world’s foremost genetics research is happening right here in South Dakota. Last Fall we introduced you to the rare partnership that Avera has with genetics research in the Netherlands.
See Inside Scientists are still unraveling natures secret olfactory signals Since pheromones were first defined in 1959, scientists have found many examples of pheromonal communication. Credit: Thinkstock Strange as it may sound, some scientists suspect that the humble armpit could be sending all kinds of signals from casual flirtation to sounding the alarm. Thats because the bodys secretions, some stinky and others below the threshold your nose can detect, may be rife with chemical messages called pheromones.
Brad Swonetz/Redux/Eyevine As a teenager in Germany, Steve Horvath, his identical twin Markus and their friend Jrg Zimmermann formed ‘the Gilgamesh project’, which involved regular meetings where the three discussed mathematics, physics and philosophy. The inspiration for the name, Horvath says, was the ancient Sumerian epic in which a king of Uruk searches for a plant that can restore youth.
A new genome analysis method has confirmed that Neanderthals interbred with ancestors of Eurasians, a new study reports. The findings, published in the April 2014 issue of the journal Genetics, explains how Neanderthals most likely interbred with modern humans after they migrated out of Africa. The new technique ruled out the other popular theory that humans who left Africa evolved from the same ancestral subpopulation where Neanderthals evolved from.

Colorectal cancer develops in what is probably the most complex environment in the human body, a place where human cells cohabitate with a colony of approximately 10 trillion bacteria, most of which are unknown. At the 2014 American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting in San Diego, researchers from The Wistar Institute will present findings that suggest the colon “microbiome” of gut bacteria can change the tumor microenvironment in a way that promotes the growth and spread of tumors. Their results suggest that bacterial virulence proteins may suppress DNA repair proteins within the epithelial cells that line the colon.

It’s not a hair-brained idea: A new research report appearing in the April 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal explains why people with a rare balding condition called “atrichia with papular lesions” lose their hair, and it identifies a strategy for reversing this hair loss. Specifically the report shows for the first time that the “human hairless gene” imparts an essential role in hair biology by regulating a subset of other hair genes. This newly discovered molecular function likely explains why mutations in the hairless gene contribute to the pathogenesis of atrichia with papular lesions
