When you are out in the woods and hear a cracking sound, your brain needs to process quickly whether the sound is coming from, say, a bear or a chipmunk. In new research published in PLoS Biology, a biomedical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has a new interpretation for an old observation, debunking an established theory in the process.

Albino Octopus: A new species discovered near hydrothermal vents on the Antarctic Sea floor, an area lacking sunlight, but rich in minerals. Doesn't sound like an albino. Sounds like they just lost their coloration like cave animals do.

Exon Skipping: Borrowing from Nature to Treat Rare Genetic Diseases

As a new debate over racism and police brutality explodes over the shooting of Terrence Crutcher by police in Oklahoma, it can be dispiriting to reflect on race relations in America in 2016. But a new study published in PLOS Biology this month has re

Earliest record of red algae   Scientists at the Swedish Museum of Natural History have found fossils of 1.6 billion-year-old(Ga) probable red algae. The spectacular finds publishing on 14 March in the open access journal PLOS Biology indicate that advanced multicellular life evolved much earlier than previously thought. The scientists found two kinds of fossils resembling red algae in uniquely well-preserved sedimentary rocks at Chitrakoot in central India. One type is thread-like the other…

An X-ray tomographic picture of fossil thread-like red algae, tinted to show detail, may be the oldest plants in history . billion yrs old!

A study recently published in PLOS Biology provides information that substantially changes the prevailing idea about the brain formation process in vertebrates and sheds some light on how it might have evolved.
