Wheat Diversity Due to Cross-Hybridization with Wild Grasses
Wheat Diversity Due to Cross-Hybridization with Wild Grasses
Bread wheat can grow in highly diverse regional environments. An important reason for its great genetic variety is the cross-hybridization with many chromosome fragments from wild grasses. This is shown by the genome sequences of 10 wheat varieties from four continents, which an international consortium including researchers from the University of Zurich has now decoded.

Early, late stages of degenerative diseases are distinct
Two-phase theory applies to diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, muscle atrophy Rice University biochemists Michael Stern and James McNew have studied how neurodegeneration kills cells. They've conducted countless experiments over more than a decade, and they've summarized all they've learned in a simple diagram they hope may change how doctors perceive and treat degenerative diseases as varied as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and muscle atrophy.

Fish carcasses deliver toxic mercury pollution to the deepest ocean trenches
The sinking carcasses of fish from near-surface waters deliver toxic mercury pollution to the most remote and inaccessible parts of the world's oceans, including the deepest spot of them all: the 36,000-foot-deep Mariana Trench in the northwest Pacific. And most of that mercury began its long journey to the deep-sea trenches as atmospheric emissions from coal-fired power plants, mining operations, cement factories, incinerators and other human activities.

When sperm fall by the wayside
In fairy tales, the king's son usually has to solve three tasks in order to win the princess's hand. This, however, is nothing compared to the challenges which await sperm on its way to the egg - or, increasingly, which spell failure. According to a number of studies and reports in the media, male fertility is in danger.
