Deepest Look Yet at Brewer’s Yeasts Reveals the Diversity Harnessed by Humans

University of Wisconsin-Madison

In the deepest look yet at the diversity of these yeasts, scientists from the University of Wisconsin–Madison reveal the dizzying complexity found in bottles of beer, wine and cider. By sequencing the genomes of more than 100 hybrid yeasts, the researchers discovered seven distinct combinations of yeast species, many of them tied to unique fermented beverages.

‘Flamenco dancing’ molecule could lead to better protecting sunscreen

University of Warwick

A molecule that protects plants from overexposure to harmful sunlight thanks to its flamenco-style twist could form the basis for a new longer-lasting sunscreen, chemists at the University of Warwick have found, in collaboration with colleagues in France and Spain.

Newswise: Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

Article ID: 720977

Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

University of Washington School of Medicine

A study published Oct. 10 in Current Biology has now found that a type of opsin known as neuropsin is expressed in the hair follicles of mice and synchronize the skin’s circadian clock to the light-dark cycle, independent of the eyes or brain. This means that skin can sense whether it is day or night even when it’s cultured by itself in a dish. Researchers now want to see if skin heals better if it’s exposed to certain types of light.

A simpler way to make some medicines

Ohio State University

Organic chemists have figured out how to synthesize the most common molecule arrangement in medicine, a scientific discovery that could change the way a number of drugs – including one most commonly used to treat ovarian cancer – are produced. Their discovery, published today in the journal Chem, gives drug makers a crucial building block for creating medicines that, so far, are made with complex processes that result in a lot of waste.
