There is “teeth” to ID

Chicken will grow teeth when pigs can fly. Well, better start searching the skies for flying pork—scientists have discovered a mutant chicken with a full set of crocodile-like chompers. The mutant chick, called Talpid, also had severe limb defects and died before hatching. It was discovered 50 years ago, but no one had ever examined […]

The Waters of Darwin’s Warm Pond Now Muddied

It seems as though “warmth+clay” does not RNA make. For those interested, just a short update. “The results are surprising and in some ways disappointing. It seems that hot acidic waters containing clay do not provide the right conditions for chemicals to assemble themselves into ‘pioneer organisms.’” Professor Deamer said that amino acids and DNA, […]

The School of Nanometry

The finding that the protein components, called “ankyrin repeats,” exhibit such unprecedented elastic properties could lead to a new understanding of how organisms, including humans, sense and respond to physical forces at the cellular level, the researchers said. The nanometer-sized springs are also ideal candidates for building biologically-inspired springy nanostructures and nanomaterials with an inherent […]
