First Human Treated With CRISPR Gene-Edited Cells In China, Report Says
For the first time, a cancer patient is being treated with cells altered using a gene editing technique called CRISPR-Cas9.
Humans Inherited The Tendency For Violence, But Civilization Has Tamed It
As a species, humans seem to have inherited murderous traits via evolution and genetics, but civilization has tamed some of it out, a new study suggests. Scientists in Spain calculated the rate at whi...
What Is The Origin Of The Handshake?
The handshake has existed in some form or another for thousands of years, but its origins are somewhat murky. One popular theory is that the...
Proof of evolution that you can find on your body
If you want evidence of evolution by natural selection, look no further than your own body.
NOVA: Little people of Flores
In 2003 paleoanthropologists made a discovery on the Indonesian island of Flores that shook up the world of early human studies like no other in recent years...
Confused Rush Limbaugh Can't Figure Out Why Gorillas Still Exist
Right-wing radio host claims evolution should have turned all gorillas into people. Rush Limbaugh seems to think that Harambe, the gorilla shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo over the weekend after ...
CRISPR: Gene Editing Is Just The Beginning
The real power of the biological tool lies in exploring how genomes work. Molecular biologists are riding a wave of new technologies made possible by CRISPR.
Scientists Identify New Drivers Of Rare Cancer Type
Cancer researchers in Würzburg, in cooperation with the international Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network, have identified new genetic drivers of adrenal cancer. Würzburg was the center of coordinati...
That Deep, Masculine Voice Is Not For You, Ladies
Men's deep, resonant voices did not evolve to thrill the ladies, but to scare off their rivals, researchers say.
These ancient Asian primate fossils might be the missing pieces of a major evolutionary puzzle
A discovery in southern China shows how catastrophic climate change shifted the course of primate — and ultimately human — evolution.
Humans Were Likely Boinking Neanderthals Earlier Than We Thought
The discovery actually says something important about modern humans' migration out of Africa.
Could The Food We Eat Affect Our Genes?| University Of Cambridge
The behaviour of our cells is determined by a combination of the activity of its genes and the chemical reactions needed to maintain the cells, known as metabolism. Metabolism works in two directions:...
Discovery Shows How Herpes Simplex Virus Reactivates In Neurons To Trigger Disease
About 90 percent of us live with HSV inside brain cells. Under stress, the virus leaves neurons and can cause cold sores, recurrent eye infection, and in rare cases encephalitis. For the first time, ...
