An amateur mathematician just partially solved a problem that has vexed mathematicians since 1950.

This Incredibly Rare Deep-Sea Video of Mating Anglerfish Is Stunning Biologists. We can't stop watching this. JACINTA BOWLER. 23 MAR 2018. Anglerfish are weird and mysterious creatures.

Anglerfish, with their menacing gape and dangling lure, are among the most curious inhabitants of the deep ocean. Scientists have hardly ever seen them alive in their natural environment. That's why a new video, captured in the waters around Portugal's Azores islands, has stunned deep-sea biologists.
The state biologists tracked the bear to a remote hill near the Pennsylvania border – about a 20-minute drive from Olean – where she was denning for the winter with her three male cubs. “I'd say she picked a great spot,” said Ryan Rockefeller, a wildlife biologist for the state Department of Environmental ...

"In order for a protein called CTCF to make loops in the DNA, we discovered that it needs to have hemimethylated DNA close by," says Emory biologist Victor Corces, whose lab conducted the research. "Nobody had previously seen that hemimethylated DNA has a function." Chromatin is made up of CTCF ...
"What happens if the environment is harsher? Is it going to change the way mutations occur, or are they going to kill more of the cells or less of the cells?" Already, what the researchers have observed so far confirms a lot of the core thinking that goes into evolutionary biology, says Richard Lenski, a biologist ...

A second sea turtle also came up on Juno Beach, but she did not successfully lay her eggs. Because the tide has been very high and rough the past few days, there is a lack of dry beach available. This may have caused the second turtle to abandon the nesting attempt. Biologists said the turtle will likely try ...
