New strategy could prevent GMO leaks from lab to the wild

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 09:27:56 EST

Scientists have crafted a bacterium incapable of surviving without human assistance. Using this strategy to build genetically modified organisms would prevent those GMOs from escaping into natural ecosystems, they say. Genetically modified bacteria are commonly used in research and industry – for example, the bacterium E. coli is used to manufacture insulin and other drugs. Whether bacteria could ever escape from those settings and wreak havoc in the natural world is unclear, but many ...

Carnegie Mellon, Weizmann Institute Researchers Discover "Idiosyncratic" Brain Patterns in Autism

Mon, 19 Jan 2015 18:36:01 EST

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has been studied for many years, but there are still many more questions than answers. For example, some research into the brain functions of individuals with autism spectrum have found a lack of synchronization ('connectivity') between different parts of the brain that normally work in tandem. But other studies have found the exact opposite — over-synchronization in the brains of those with ASD. New research recently published in Nature Neuroscience suggest...
