Why men like women's curves? How big a role has evolution played? - Genetic Literacy Project


Genetic Literacy Project
It seems logical, and in fact, based on studies by researches in the fields of evolutionary psychology and sociobiology, evidence has been building steadily in support of the idea that sexual attraction is controlled mainly by factors hardwired into ...

Three-dimensional genome architecture: players and mechanisms - Nature.com


Nature.com
The different cell types of an organism share the same DNA, but during cell differentiation their genomes undergo diverse structural and organizational changes that affect gene expression and other cellular functions. These can range from large-scale ...

DNA replication Double duty for ATR - Nature.com


Nature.com
Mec1, the yeast orthologue of human ATR, is an essential protein kinase that regulates the DNA damage response following replication stress to maintain genome integrity. In this study, de Oliveira et al. used a quantitative mass spectrometry approach ...
