Embryos taking shape via buckling

September 14, 2020

Via: ScienceDaily Health

The embryo of an animal first looks like a hollow sphere. Invaginations then appear at different stages of development, which will give rise to the body’s structures (the brain, digestive tract, etc.). According to a hypothesis that dates back more […]

Geneticists discover how sex-linked disorders arise

December 14, 2018

Via: The Medical News

The study suggests that a critical regulatory gene carried on the Y chromosome increases or decreases the activity of particular gene that determine whether a baby will be male or female. First author Brittany Croft says the critical gene is […]
