He added that the new work lends credence to the idea that these unusual DNA shapes may play an essential role in human biology, perhaps by regulating gene expression. The folded shape of the i-motif only occurs in a relatively small region of a genome — sticking out like a bumpy knot in the smooth ...
Rock shards from the toolmaking of the ancient hunter-gatherers are spread out on a lab table where sophomore Alexa Rome and junior Aditi Majoe, both anthropology and human biology majors, pore over them with magnifying glasses. Many of the shards are barely bigger than a thumbnail — likely the ...

The goal of the project is to “map every cell in the human body as a resource to understand and improve human health and disease,” Chan wrote in a Facebook post announcing the new funding.
