Study Builds on Plausible Scenario for Origin of Life on Earth

University of California, Merced

A relatively simple combination of naturally occurring sugars and amino acids offers a plausible route to the building blocks of life, according to a paper published in Nature Chemistry co-authored by a professor at the University of California, Merced. The study shows how the precursors to RNA could have formed on Earth before any life existed, and it builds on the work of John D. Sutherland and Matthew W. Powner, published in 2009.

Evolution Provides Clue to Blood Clotting

Washington University in St. Louis

A simple cut to the skin unleashes a complex cascade of chemistry to stem the flow of blood. Now, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have used evolutionary clues to reveal how a key clotting protein assembles. The finding sheds new light on common bleeding disorders.

Toxicologists Find Deepwater Horizon Crude Less Toxic to Bird Eggs After Weathering at Sea

Texas Tech University

The Texas Tech study found only 8 to 9 percent coverage of oil on the shells of fertilized mallard duck eggs resulted in a 50 percent mortality rate. However, scientists also reported the amount of time the oil remained at sea and exposed to weather had a significant effect on its toxicity to the fertilized duck eggs.
