Genetically modified non-human primate fetuses as models to study the role of candidate genes for increasing size and folding of the human neocortex during development and evolution

Posted by on July 27th, 2020

By Michael Heide and Wieland B. Huttner   Introduction The neocortex is the seat of our higher cognitive abilities that distinguish us from other mammals and that make us human (Rakic, 2009). One basis for this crucial feature is the increase in the size of the neocortex during hominin evolution, culminating in modern humans (Striedter,[…]

Building plant weapons

Posted by on July 27th, 2020

By Fei Zhang and Vivian F. Irish Flowering plants, from giant sequoias to miniscule duckweed, all depend on the action of small populations of cells, called meristems, to grow.  Meristems contain stem cells that continue to proliferate to give rise to roots, shoots, leaves, and branches. However, there are situations in which meristematic cells cease[…]
