The genetic secrets of a “living fossil” have been revealed by scientists. Researchers sequenced the genome of the coelacanth: a deep-sea fish that closely resembles its ancestors, which lived at least 300 million years ago. The study found that some of the animal’s genes evolved very slowly, giving it its primitive appearance. The work also shed light on how the fish was related to the first land-based animals. The coelacanth has four large, fleshy fins, which some scientists believe could have been the predecessors of limbs. It had been suggested that this fish was closely related to early tetrapods – [...]
Human Evolution (Part1) Captured in a single, animated time lapsed shot, and based on the latest archeological findings, we trace our epic journey from the first spark of life billions of years ago up to our present status as the most successful species on the planet.
By James Gallagher Health and science reporter, BBC News The rat kidney was grown in the laboratory A kidney “grown” in the laboratory has been transplanted into animals where it started to produce urine, US scientists say. Similar techniques to make simple body parts have already been used in patients, but the kidney is one of the most complicated organs made so far. A study, in the journal Nature Medicine, showed the engineered kidneys were less effective than natural ones. But regenerative medicine researchers said the field had huge promise. Kidneys filter the blood [...]

Francis Collins California Institute of Technology 2009 With the advances of modern science, many of us wonder whether the Christian faith has been become irrelevant or been proved untrue. In this Veritas Forum presentation at Caltech, Francis Collins, former Director of the Human Genome Project, now Head of the National Institute of Health, shares about his research and why, as a young doctor, he began a journey from atheism to Christian faith.
Science for the Public’s monthly program, Contemporary Science 9/29/11 recorded at Belmont Media Ctr, Belmont MA. Discussion with John Quackenbush, PhD, Professor of Computational Biology & Biostatistics, Dept of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health; Professor of Cancer Biology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI); and Director, DFCI Center for Cancer Computational Biology (CCCB) Genomic science has transformed biological science through the development of technologies that make it possible to survey, on a global scale, organisms and their gene, protein, and metabolic patterns of expression. The challenge is no longer how to generate these vast bodies of genomic data, but [...]
