Twist on gene-editing tool may speed studies of gene function - Spectrum


Spectrum
... Jun Yao, principal investigator at the School of Life Sciences at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “That's why I wanted to develop a fast tool, so that we can generate very rapid mouse strains.” Researchers could use the tool to suppress genes ...

Land plants arose earlier than thought—and may have had a bigger impact on the evolution of animals - Science Magazine


Science Magazine
Some scientists have tried to use plant genetic data as "molecular clocks"—knowing a typical mutation rate, they can estimate how long ago various species split based upon their differences in DNA-to figure out their evolutionary history. But they ...

What Should Grow in a Vacant Lot? - CityLab


CityLab
Swan is one of only a handful of ecologists in the world who do experiments in urban vacant lots—for that matter, ecologists rarely experiment in cities at all. His work is part of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study, a massive long-term research project ...
