New technique expands pool of gene-corrected liver cells

Sean Nygaard and colleagues have developed a new technique that may help to overcome one of the largest hurdles in gene therapy—the ability to generate a large pool of gene-corrected cells that would be effective in repairing or correcting injury and disease.

Constrain the composition of Earth’s interior with elasticity of minerals

The new method, which reduces the computational loads to one-tenth of the traditional method, has been used to calculate the elasticity of many minerals with the comparable precise as those on the basis of the traditional method. These elastic data are crucial in constraining the composition and temperature of the Earth’s interior. The relevant researches have been reviewed by Wu and Wang in a paper published in SCIENCE CHINA Earth Sciences.

Males were saved by agriculture

The emergence of agriculture is suggested to have driven extensive human population growths. However, role of agriculture that played in initial population expansions still remains controversial. Researchers at Fudan found that the estimated effective population sizes through time revealed strong evidence for 10- to 100-fold increase in population growth of males with the advent of agriculture.

Discovering how Cyanobacteria form patterns for nitrogen fixation

Scientists at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have analyzed the process of nitrogen fixation by cyanobacteria, creating a mathematical model which allows to understand the patterns they form. In these patterns, approximately one out of ten cells in cyanobacteria filaments fixes nitrogen, while the remaining nine carry out photosynthesis. These microorganisms are fundamental to life on Earth because they produce much of the oxygen in our planet, and convert nitrogen into chemical forms which can be used by any life form.
