Researchers lay out first genetic history of Rome
Despite extensive records of the history of Rome, little is known about the city's population over time. A new genetic history of the Eternal City reveals a dynamic population shaped in part by political and historical events. Scholars have been studying Rome for hundreds of years, but it still holds some secrets - for instance, relatively little is known about the ancestral origins of the city's denizens.

Chemical 'vaccine' helps plants repel pathogens
Chemical ’vaccine’ helps plants repel pathogens
Scientists knew that plants wage chemical war against bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Now they've learned how to "vaccinate" tomato plants with a natural chemical to boost their defenses against a pest that makes leaves shrivel up and die. When plants come under attack from invading bacteria, viruses or fungi, they mount a two-pronged response, producing both offensive chemicals to kill invaders and defensive chemicals to prevent infestations from spreading.
