Oysters and Clams Can be Farmed Together
Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Eastern oysters and three species of clams can be farmed together and flourish, potentially boosting profits of shellfish growers, according to a Rutgers University–New Brunswick study. Though diverse groups of species often outperform single-species groups, most bivalve farms in the United States and around the world grow their crops as monocultures, notes the study in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series.

Scientists Take Aim at the Coronavirus Toolkit
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

PNNL scientist Garry Buchko is part of a nationwide network exploring the complex 3D structures of the 27 proteins of the novel coronavirus, each part of the molecular toolkit that the virus uses to infect, replicate and spread. Creating atomic-level pictures of the protein structures is a crucial first step toward mucking up the virus’s inner workings.

Mayo Clinic

A supply shortage of critical materials, such as ventilators, face shields and masks, is possible in the U.S. In response, several Mayo Clinic teams have reached out to colleagues to assess their current and expected needs. These teams also are determining how they could print critical medical supplies as part of the organization's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Homo naledi juvenile remains offers clues to how our ancestors grew up

A partial skeleton of Homo naledi represents a rare case of an immature individual, shedding light on the evolution of growth and development in human ancestry, according to a study published April 1, 2020 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Debra Bolter of Modesto Junior College in California and the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and colleagues.
