H1N1 influenza adopted novel strategy to move from birds to humans
BERKELEY — The 2009 H1N1 influenza virus used a new strategy to cross from birds into humans, a warning that it has more than one trick up its sleeve to jump the species barrier and become virulent. The sequence of the three subunits of the influenza virus polymerase (center) determines whether or not the enzyme works efficiently in birds, pigs or humans.

Similar Molecular Tweaks Led Both a Shrew and a Lizard to Produce Venom
Cambridge, Mass. October 29, 2009 - Biologists have shown that independent but similar molecular changes turned a harmless digestive enzyme into a toxin in two unrelated species - a shrew and a lizard - giving each a venomous bite. The work, described this week in the journal Current Biology by researchers at Harvard University, suggests that protein adaptation may be a highly predictable process, one that could eventually help discover other toxins across a wide array of species.

When ants attack: Researchers recreate chemicals that trigger aggression in Argentine ants
Argentine ants in their native habitat engage in inter-colony warfare, keeping their numbers in check. In introduced ranges, these ants are often genetically similar, allowing them to form supercolonies. Researchers have now isolated and synthesized chemicals used by Argentine ants to distinguish friend from foe.
