    In this episode we hear about TB, HIV, social behaviour in ants, genetics in baboons and a surprising twist to the handshake.
  2. A seed next to a sign saying "nothing to declare"

    Episode 64: February 2020

    In this episode we hear about genetic privacy, plants with three parents, using cannabis to treat endometriosis, a new type of hearing test and how we can enjoy a cuddle.
  3. Episode 3: August 2013

    Episode 3: August 2013

    In this episode we hear about the cocktail party effect, the role of psuedogene RNA in the immune response, the genetic origins of a common form of blindness, the flu vaccine, and the origins of schistosomiasis.

    Reactive oxygen species regulate activity-dependent neuronal plasticity in Drosophila

    Matthew CW Oswald et al.
    Reactive oxygen species, previously considered damaging agents linked to pathology, are required for normal neuronal plasticity, including adjustment of synaptic terminal size, maintenance of synaptic physiology and adaptive behavioural responses.

    Macrophages are necessary for epimorphic regeneration in African spiny mice

    Jennifer Simkin et al.
    Inflammatory cells differentially regulate a scarring versus a regenerating response to injury in mammals.

    Evidence for suppression of immunity as a driver for genomic introgressions and host range expansion in races of Albugo candida, a generalist parasite

    Mark McMullan et al.
    Hybridization and introgression blur species boundaries and broaden genetic diversity available for adaptation; and widespread introgression underpins the evolution of races of the generalist pathogen Albugo candida that specialise on different host plant species.
    1. Neuroscience

    Nociceptive interneurons control modular motor pathways to promote escape behavior in Drosophila

    Anita Burgos et al.
    A class of interneuron is identified that promotes escape behavior downstream of nociceptor inputs via connections to nociceptive integrator and premotor networks.

    Kinesin superfamily protein Kif26b links Wnt5a-Ror signaling to the control of cell and tissue behaviors in vertebrates

    Michael W Susman et al.
    Kif26b, a new component of the evolutionarily conserved Wnt5a-Ror signaling pathway, is controlled by regulated proteolysis and plays crucial roles in mediating vertebrate embryonic tissue morphogenesis.
    1. Neuroscience

    The Prop1-like homeobox gene unc-42 specifies the identity of synaptically connected neurons

    Emily G Berghoff et al.
    Circuit transcription factors may define the differentiation and assembly of distinct neurons into functional circuitry.
