New Measure to Predict Stress Resilience
Researchers at the University of Zurich show that increased sensitivity in a specific region of the brain contributes to the development of anxiety and depression in response to real-life stress. Their study establishes an objective neurobiological measure for stress resilience in humans. Some people don't seem to be too bothered when it comes to handling stress.

Conservationists may be unintentionally spreading pathogens between threatened animal populations
Conservationists may be unintentionally spreading pathogens between threatened animal populations
Moving endangered species to new locations is often used as part of species conservation strategies, and can help to restore degraded ecosystems. But scientists say there is a high risk that these relocations are accidentally spreading diseases and parasites. We've seen that mixing different populations of mussels can allow widespread transmission of gonad-eating worms.

Model reveals surprising disconnect between physical characteristics and genetic ancestry in certain populations
Stanford model reveals surprising disconnect between physical characteristics and genetic ancestry in certain populations Stanford biologists have built a model examining the relationship between physical traits and genetic ancestry in populations formed from the mixture of multiple founding groups. They found that the relationship dissipates over generations.

A Swiss Army Knife for Genomic Data
A good way to find out what a cell is doing-whether it is growing out of control as in cancers, or is under the control of an invading virus, or is simply going about the routine business of a healthy cell-is to look at its gene expression. Though a vast majority of cells in an organism all contain the same genes, how those genes are expressed is what gives rise to different cell types-the difference between a muscle cell and a neuron, for example.

One of the world’s most secretive mammals photographed in WildCRU’s Togo survey | University of Oxford
Researchers at the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU), , today confirmed that it has captured the first ever images of Walter's duiker ( Philantomba walteri ) alive in the wild. This small African antelope has hitherto been secretive to the point of invisibility. The WildCRU study, published today in  African Journal of Ecology , was led in Togo by local mammologist, Délagnon Assou, with the base team led by Dr Neil D'Cruze, and shows a stunning picture of an animal which has never been photographed alive in the wild before.
