Genomics and Cell Biology: July 2014


Parts of the primordial soup in which life arose have been maintained in our cells today according to scientists at the University of East Anglia.

In a study published in PLOS ONE, researchers led by Deborah Kimbrell, Ph.D., at UC Davis and their collaborators, studied how microorganisms may alter fruit flies' immunity in space and in hypergravity, or increased gravity. The article is titled "Toll Mediated Infection Response Is Altered by Gravity and Spaceflight in Drosophila."
