Scientists Identify New Epigenetic Mechanism That Switches Off Placental Genes in Mice

Harvard Medical School researchers have discovered a new regulatory mechanism for genomic imprinting, the process that silences one parent’s gene so that only the other parent’s gene is expressed in offspring.

Memory Takes Time, Researchers Conclude

How short-term memories become long-term ones has frequently been explored by researchers. While a definitive answer remains elusive, NYU scientists Thomas Carew and Nikolay Kukushkin conclude that this transformation is best explained by a “temporal hierarchy” of “time windows” that collectively alter the state of the brain.

New Robotic Lab Tracking Toxicity of Lake Erie Algal Bloom

A new research tool to safeguard drinking water is now keeping a watchful eye on Lake Erie. This week, a robotic lake-bottom laboratory began tracking the levels of dangerous toxins produced by cyanobacteria that bloom each summer in the lake's western basin.
