About a third of US adults don’t get enough sleep. And sleep deprivation has serious consequences for your brain and body. Many people think they can get by on less than seven to nine hours a night – the amount of sleep doctors recommend for most adults – or say they need to sleep less because of work or family obligations.

Studies routinely find that men are more likely to cheat on their partners, commit sexual misconduct, and act recklessly when it comes to sex. Why have men evolved to be more sexually impulsive, and can we learn to change our ways? Couple getting married. Infidelity continues to be the one of leading causes of divorce. (Getty Images)

Abstract Recent advances in epigenomics have made it possible to map genome-wide regulatory regions using empirical methods. Subsequent comparative epigenomic studies have revealed that regulatory regions diverge rapidly between genome of different species, and that the divergence is more pronounced in enhancers than in promoters. To understand genomic changes underlying these patterns, we investigated if

Abstract In bacterial cells, gene expression, metabolism, and growth are highly interdependent and tightly coordinated. As a result, stochastic fluctuations in expression levels and instantaneous growth rate show intricate cross-correlations. These correlations are shaped by feedback loops, trade-offs and constraints acting at the cellular level; therefore a quantitative understanding requires an integrated approach. To that

Physicists assemble the LUX (Large Underground Xenon) detector, which was one of the world’s most sensitive searches for the direct detection of dark matter particles. When in place inside the Homestake mine, the liquid-xenon-filled capsule hoped to detect three or four particles of dark matter a year. It wound up detecting zero. (John B. Carnett/Bonnier

The ability to record transcriptional events within a cell over time would help to elucidate how molecular events give rise to complex cellular behaviours and states. However, current molecular recording technologies capture only a small set of defined stimuli. Researchers at ETH Zurich developed a method they called Record-seq for capturing gene-expression profiles. They genetically engineered the

Only 28 percent of American CEOs are women. To find out why such a gap exists, a study published this fall in Personnel Psychology analyzed more than 100 papers on leadership emergence published between 1957 and 2017. In the papers, samples of students or co-workers were asked to select group leaders or to rate one another

Posted by: RNA-Seq Blog in Review Publications 46 mins ago 46 Views Subpopulation identification, usually via some form of unsupervised clustering, is a fundamental step in the analysis of many single-cell RNA-seq data sets. This has motivated the development and application of a broad range of clustering methods, based on various underlying algorithms. Here, researchers

China secretly inserted surveillance microchips into servers used by major technology companies, including Apple and Amazon.com, in an audacious military operation likely to further inflame trade tensions between the United States and its leading source of electronics components and products, Bloomberg Businessweek reported Thursday morning. The article – which the companies vigorously denied – detailed

High throughput (HT) screens in the omics field are typically analyzed by automated pipelines that generate static visualizations and comprehensive spreadsheet data for scientists. However, exploratory and hypothesis driven data analysis are key aspects for the understanding of biological systems, which benefit considerably from customized and dynamic visualization.
