Quotes

...what makes this organism tick," study co-author Dr JohnJohn Perfect, a professor of medicine at Duke University, said in a university news release. "By having a carefully annotated genome of H99, we can investigate how this and similar organisms can change and mutate and begin to understand why they aren't easily killed by antifungal medications."
"Success in STEM is important for academic and economic reasons. The mission for anyone’s education is to learn how to communicate, how to think, and how to relate."
"We are trying to track the impacts of major climatic shifts on the epigenetic variation in vertebrate populations," says Cooper. "I'm convinced this is how many of the megafaunal groups, including humans, adapted to the major and repeated climate swings of the late Pleistocene."
"People are fundamentally interested in what makes us human, in what makes us different from Neanderthals" said Sarah Tishkoff, an expert in human evolution at the University of Pennsylvania, who was not involved in the new study...
