Results from Sankararaman's and Yang's groups "convincingly show that the finding of a higher proportion of Neandertal DNA in non-Africans compared to Africans can be best explained by gene flow from Neandertals into modern humans," says evolutionary geneticist
Johannes Krause of the University of Tubingen in Germany.
For example, he is in the process of putting together a consortium of geneticists
, historians, writers, and anthropologists to move toward linking African Americans to Africans on a broad front.
Another champion of city trees, the late Frank Santamour, who was also a research geneticist
at the National Arboretum, searched for trees that could survive tough urban conditions and then tried to simulate those stresses at the arboretum--creating wounds, for example, to see how they healed--to see how the trees would fare as potential city species.
And the geneticist
cheerfully informed us, "You can still go to Kansas.
Admittedly, it sounds like something out of a Stanley Kubrick film, but suppose geneticists
could ``breed out'' genetic tendencies toward Alzheimer's, obesity or schizophrenia?
To provide a more solid basis for informed discussion, in 1985-86 we undertook a survey of responses to ethical dilemmas by medical geneticists
in nineteen nations.
net) offers a variety of resources including Policy Statements, Practice Guidelines variety of resources including Policy Statements, Practice Guidelines, Educational Resources, and a Medical Geneticist
The research, published December 21 in PLoS Biology, "does a very thorough job of nailing shut the coffin on some of the more heretical theories" about elephant evolution, says Stephen O'Brien, a geneticist
at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, Md.
Christina Adler, a geneticist
at ACAD, and her team found that the conventional method of drilling teeth at speeds of more than 1,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) to sample teeth and bone destroys DNA thanks to the heat that is generated.
Cogwheels Of The Mind: The Story Of Venn Diagrams is expertly written by statistician and geneticist
And certain muscles--such as those toward its hind area--bulk up more than others, says Eduardo Casas, a geneticist
with the U.
A typical gene of 30,000 base pairs has 150 SNPs, noted Deborah Nickerson, a geneticist
at the University of Washington in Seattle.
