Simone Biles has a rival — a tiny bark beetle (but it can't stick the landing)

A team of researchers has discovered the gymnastic ability of bark beetle larvae. Scientists recently recorded the larvae performing the twisting leap for the first time.

A newborn lost large parts of his brain. Today, he’s an athletic college grad.

“Normally, when a child is missing that much brain, it’s bad,” says the doctor who diagnosed him as having suffered a perinatal stroke. But his brain was able to remap itself.

Venturing beyond the genes: New RefSeq Functional Elements publication!

If you’re curious about genome annotation beyond the genes, then read on! We previously blogged about our RefSeq Functional Elements resource, which provides annotation of experimentally validated, non-genic functional elements in human and mouse. Now, to kick off 2022, we’re delighted to announce a new publication in the January issue of Genome Research: Farrell CM, … Continue reading Venturing beyond the genes: New RefSeq Functional Elements publication!
