Darwin's Finch Caught In The Act Of Becoming New Species

"It's an extreme case of something we're coming to realize more generally over the years. Evolution in general can happen very quickly,” said speciation expert Prof Roger Butlin, who wasn't involved in the study."

Scripps "expanded" the DNA alphabet. Wow. Gasp

Taken together, the new approaches “unlock the application potential of DNA origami,” says Carlos Castro, a DNA nanotech expert at The Ohio State University in Columbus. Other researchers have already loaded hollow origami structures with drugs to target specific types of cancer cells, created DNA “robots” that walk across surfaces, and mimicked the shape of viruses. But because the new DNA objects are on the same size scale of devices that can be patterned using computer chip lithography, it might be possible to integrate the two technologies and design DNA origami to detect cancer biomarkers and other biological targets that could then be read out by electronic devices, Castro says. And that’s just one possible set of devices. Adds Yin: “Now, there are so many ways to be creative with these tools.”

Pretty sure there is a Paddington Bear pun in here somewhere, but can't quite put my paw on it Shy

"Clinical researchers at Barts Health NHS Trust and Queen Mary University of London have found that over one year on from a single treatment with a gene therapy drug, participants with haemophilia A (the most common type) are showing normal levels of the previously missing protein, and effectively curing them."

On a side note, the Trump administration has just sent word to University of London that they are no longer in their reports to use the words "drug" "Queen" "researchers" or "hemophilia." When asked, a spokesman for the Trump administration admitted they didn't know what the last word actually meant, but that it "just sounded kind of gay."

Why do they think they can tell the University of London what they can do? Consider

Is this hubris or are they just fucking stupid?
