  • Of Medieval Market Townes and Wasp Guts

    02/03/2016

    Back before trains, planes and automobiles, people didn’t get around as much. And for the people of medieval Europe, this could be a real problem genetically. At this time there were a lot of small, isolated villages scattered across Europe. If people in these villages stayed put, inbreeding might have gotten as bad as the poor Spanish Hapsburgs. Their last king, Charles II, was infertile, riddled with genetic diseases and his royal line died out with... Read...
  • Unfrying An Egg

    01/20/2016

    Eggs start out as slimy and awful, but can end up warm, firm and wonderful. All it takes is some heat to denature the egg proteins and voilà, a tasty breakfast. Not that anyone would want to do it, but of course it is impossible to do the reverse. You can’t take a fried egg and turn it back into a raw one. The denaturation is pretty much permanent. When a cell is hit with high temperatures,... Read...
  • Join SGD at The Allied Genetics Conference

    01/12/2016

    SGD will be attending The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC) in Orlando, Florida, July 13–17, 2016! For the first time ever, the meetings of the yeast, C. elegans, ciliate, Drosophila, mouse, and zebrafish model organism communities will be united under one roof, along with a new meeting on population, evolutionary, and quantitative genetics. Submit your abstracts now! Abstract submission will be open until March 23, 2016. If you want GREAT science and access to the leaders of... Read...
  • Clearing Customs in the Nucleus

    01/06/2016

    Going through customs at the airport is a necessary evil. Once off the plane, you need to stand in line, scan for an open station, have various forms looked over and possibly stamped before you can pass through the airport doors and get into a new country. And of course if there is anything wrong, you can be sent back to get your papers in order. A pain but it does help protect people. Things work pretty... Read...
