Newly Discovered Fossils of Fish From Multiple Life Stages May “Rewrite Textbooks”

Posted by in category: education

A new study out of the University of Chicago, the Canadian Museum of Nature and the Albany Museum challenges a long-held hypothesis that the larvae of modern lampreys are a holdover from the distant past, resembling the ancestors of all living vertebrates, including ourselves.

The new fossil discoveries indicate that ancient lamprey hatchlings more closely resembled modern adult lampreys, and were completely unlike their modern larvae counterparts. The results were published on March 102021, in Nature.

“We’ve basically removed lampreys from the position of the ancestral condition of vertebrates,” said first author Tetsuto Miyashita, formerly a Chicago Fellow at the University of Chicago and now a paleontologist at the Canadian Museum of Nature. “So now we need an alternative.”

Engineered viruses can fight the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, biotech/medical, education, genetics, health, policy

As the world fights the SARS-CoV-2 virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic, another group of dangerous pathogens looms in the background. The threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has been growing for years and appears to be getting worse. If COVID-19 taught us one thing, it’s that governments should be prepared for more global public health crises, and that includes finding new ways to combat rogue bacteria that are becoming resistant to commonly used drugs.

In contrast to the current pandemic, viruses may be be the heroes of the next epidemic rather than the villains. Scientists have shown that viruses could be great weapons against bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.

I am a biotechnology and policy expert focused on understanding how personal genetic and biological information can improve human health. Every person interacts intimately with a unique assortment of viruses and bacteria, and by deciphering these complex relationships we can better treat infectious diseases caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
