Genome Analysis Reveals Origins Of Genetic Adaptations For High Altitude In Tibetans
2014-02-11 09:00:22

University of Chicago Medical Center Genetic adaptations for life at high elevations found in residents of the Tibetan plateau likely originated around 30,000 years ago in peoples related to contemporary Sherpa. These genes were passed on to more recent migrants from lower elevations via population mixing, and then amplified by natural selection in the modern Tibetan gene pool, according to a new study by scientists from the University of Chicago and Case Western Reserve University,...

Since its first identification in Asia, highly pathogenic avian influenza—H5N1—has caused significant alarm in the scientific community.  While the virus’ primary target is birds—tens of millions have already died from it—it is capable of infecting mammals, including humans, causing serious illness and a frightening rate of mortality. In a new study, Matthew Scotch, a researcher at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute, tracks the spread of an H5N1 variant in...
