A new story for inner ear evolution based on the developmental patterning found in hagfish, one of two extant jawless vertebrates and a link to the last common ancestor of modern jawed vertebrates.
Scientists discover that mutations causing the degenerative movement disorder spinocerebellar ataxia type 29 work by disrupting calcium release of neurons inside the brain.
New genetic insights into the plant rehydration process: this is why your plants don’t die after you forgot to water them.
Scientists designed transgenic plants that survive drought-like conditions by bumping up acetic acid production only when water is scarce.
Scientists have discovered a gene that allows plants to cope with extreme heat by changing the composition of chloroplast membranes.
Researchers discover a dopaminergic circuit in the brain that allows fear associations to disappear when there isn’t anything to be afraid of anymore.
