MicroRNAs have shaped the evolution of the majority of mammalian genes

RNA continues to shed its reputation as DNA's faithful sidekick. Now, researchers in the lab of Whitehead Institute Member David Bartel have found that a class of small RNAs called microRNAs influence the evolution of genes far more widely than previous research h...

Sea urchins' unexpectedly diverse 'innate' immune capability points to new research avenue

...gical Sciences, said. "It was a big surprise, that continues to astound us," she added. Like many "lower" animals such as insects, earth worms and others without an adaptive immune system (one that can make antibodies), a sea urchin's innate system seems to produce a wide diversity of proteins that probably c...

Obesity before pregnancy linked to childhood weight problems

..."Weight states tend to persist over time. "Obesity continues to rise in adults," she said. "And that risk has increased in children, too. Interventions should begin immediately for children who are already overweight at these young ages." In related work, Salsberry has also looked at the weights of teenagers a...
