Genetic Adaptation Keeps Ethiopians Heart-Healthy Despite High Altitudes

August 3, 2015

Ethiopians have lived at high altitudes for thousands of years, providing a natural experiment for studying human adaptations to low oxygen, a condition known as hypoxia. One factor that may enable Ethiopians to tolerate high altitudes and hypoxia is the endothelin receptor type B (EDNRB) gene. Researchers at University of…

Nanoparticles Made From Plant Viruses Could Be Farmers’ New Ally in Pest Control

September 21, 2023

UC San Diego engineers have devised a new solution to control a major agricultural menace, root-damaging nematodes. Using plant viruses, they created nanoparticles that can deliver pesticides to previously unreachable soil depths. This could potentially minimize environmental toxicity and costs.
