Geometry Shapes Evolution of Early Multicellularity

IntroductionOrganisms have increased in complexity through a series of major evolutionary transitions, in which formerly autonomous entities become parts of a novel higher-level entity [1] – [5] . Examples of this transition include the evolution of multicellular ... [Published Plosone.org - Sep 19 2014]

Decoding virus-host interactions in the oxygen-starved ocean

For multicellular lifeplants and animalsto thrive in the oceans, there must be enough dissolved oxygen in the water. In certain coastal areas, extreme oxygen-starvation produces "dead zones" that decimate marine fisheries and destroy food web structure. ... [Published Bio-Medicine - Sep 16 2014]

Quotes

..."just as beneficial, but since death is a natural part of most organisms, it is wise to co-opt it in such a way to benefit the living," Libby says. "We must view the group organism as a completely new environment, one in which traits like cell death might have different consequences" for the health of living things
"Our first steps in this project will be obtaining live cultures from fungal culture collections in the United States and worldwide to begin genome sequence and bioimaging data collection" Stajich said
"Our studies suggest that PRC2 represses the X chromosomes in C elegans germ cells, and this repression is transmitted to embryos by both sperm and oocytes,” wrote the authors of the Science article. “[Our] results demonstrate that H3K27me and PRC2 each contribute to epigenetically transmitting the memory of repression across generations and during development.”"
"Briefly, a microfluidic capsule comprises three main components in the form of a top lid, a middle piece and a bottom piece. The top lid is in the form of a lid sheet comprising a light window. The middle piece comprises a middle sheet comprising at least one fluid inlet and at least one fluid outlet and a light window. The light window has a circumferential or circumferentially distributed wall around its perimeter. Multiple raised walls are circumferentially distributed around the perimeter of the middle sheet and are separated by raised connection structures that are to interact with snap-fit structures of the bottom piece during assembly. At least one support pillar is attached to the middle sheet and positioned between the perimeters of the middle sheet and the light window. The ends of the raised walls, the circumferential or circumferentially distributed wall and the at least one support pillar facing opposite to the middle sheet are arranged to be attached to the top lid. The support pillar and the circumferential or circumferentially distributed wall thereby provides structural support to reduce the risk of structural deformations of the middle sheet during assembly of the microfluidic capsule."
