Bacteria Provide New Insights into Human Decision Making

Scientists studying how bacteria under stress collectively weigh and initiate different survival strategies say they have gained new insights into how humans make strategic decisions that affect their health, wealth and the fate of others in society.

Bacterial insights provide vast understanding

Researchers have constructed a complete model, including three dimensional protein structures, of the central metabolic network of the bacterium Thermotoga maritima.

Robotics insights through flies' eyes

A fly's brain enables the unbelievable - the animal's easy negotiation of obstacles in rapid flight, split-second reaction to the hand that would catch it, and unerring navigation to the smelly delicacies it lives on.

Domestication of pepper provides insights into ingredient history

Researchers are exploring the domestication of chiles, hot peppers that have long played an important role in the diets of Mesoamerican people, possibly since as early as 8000 B.C.

Human population structure insights

Through sophisticated statistical analyses and advanced computer simulations, researchers are learning more about the genomic patterns of human population structure around the world.

Insights into progressive hearing loss

In parallel studies in human and mouse, two groups of researchers have come to the same conclusion: that a new kind of gene is associated with progressive hearing loss.

Next-generation sequencing opens gate to new insights

Sequencing is a powerful and versatile tool that helps scientists gain new insights in many areas of medicine and biology. Dr Burkhard Ziebolz reports.
