Despite the idea’s foothold in popular culture, however, there is no hard evidence that ancient humans were persistence hunters, much less that persistence hunting shaped evolutionary traits. In fact, what evidence there is doesn’t support the notion that early humans acquired their meaty meals through feats of running endurance; it flatly contradicts it.
Delivery via caesarean section, maternal antibiotic prophylaxis and colonization by opportunistic pathogens associated with the hospital environment affect the composition of the gut microbiota of children from birth until infancy.
The Cell team recently took a look at our reviewer pool for the papers we were sending out for peer review. It was immediately obvious that our choices were skewed toward American, male reviewers…
Given Cell’s scope as a journal, we can and should do much better in getting the expertise and voice of female researchers.
Last night, I was honored by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Alongside Oakland Privacy and William Gibson, I received a 2019 Barlow/Pioneer Award. I was asked to give a speech. As I reflected on what got me to this place, I realized I needed to reckon with how I have benefited from men whose actions have helped uphold a patriarchal system that has hurt so many people. I needed to face my past in order to find a way to create space to move forward.

The number of women climbing the career ladder in science remains “disappointingly low”, says a study.
An approach to estimate the contribution of all alleles to phenotypic variation is applied to transcription regulation using whole-genome sequencing and transcriptome data. Ultrarare variants contribute approximately 46% of cis heritability across genes.
A machine learning model allows the identification of new small-molecule kinase inhibitors in days.
A new method for inferring genealogical histories from large-scale genetic data is used to characterize population structure using data from the 1000 Genomes Project, the UK Biobank and the Simons Genome Diversity Project.
Deaths of prominent life scientists tend to be followed by a surge in highly cited research by newcomers.
