Researchers in Colorado develops genetic disruption strategy aimed at deterring evolution of superbugs

Researchers at the University of Colorado in Boulder have developed a genetic disruption strategy that stops the evolution of a “superbug.” Superbugs, those pathogens that are resistant to drugs, infect nearly 2 million people annually in the United States – killing 23,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control. “In an effort to develop a…

I Dream of Gene-ie: Scientists discover genes that can control deep sleep

Could nightmares be controlled or even eliminated? New research indicates that it could at least be possible following the discovering of two genes that are responsive for nightmares and dreams. Scientists in Japan, in a new study, identified a pair of genes that can regulate rapid eye movement and non-REMP sleep an animal experienced. The…
