A genetic abnormality which causes extreme friendliness in people also causes the friendliness we observe in dogs.

Could this protein protect people against coronary artery disease?

The buildup of plaque in the heart's arteries is an unfortunate part of aging. But by studying the genetic makeup of people who maintain clear arteries into old age, researchers have identified a possible genetic basis for coronary artery disease (CAD), as well as potential new opportunities to prevent it.

Genetic kill switches keep engineered microbes from going AWOL

20 hours agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Bacteria can be great little workhorses, engineered to make better batteries, clean up waste plastics, combat cancer and even produce oxygen for the first human settlers on Mars. The problem is, we don't really know what the crafty critters could do if they were to ever escape from their intended environments – and let's face it, they probably will. Show More Summary
