The Genetic Basis of Parental Care

April 19, 2017

Why are some mice and people monogamous? And, why are monogamous fathers better at parenting? In a study led by Hopi Hoekstra and postdocs, Andrés Bendesky and Jean-Marc Lassance, the answer points to a genetic basis for parental care in monogamous parents that can elvolve independently in males and females. The study published in the latest issue of...

Pardis Sabeti Part of Scientific Team that Adapted CRISPR-Based Diagnostic Platform

April 14, 2017

Pardis Sabeti is part of a scientific team from the Broad Institute, McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science at MIT, and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, that has adapted a CRISPR protein that targets RNA (rather than DNA), for use as a rapid, inexpensive, highly sensitive diagnostic tool with the potential to transform research and global public health. Their study is published today in...

A Mathematical Argument for Stable Families or Stable Friendships

March 30, 2017

Working with Emmanuel College scientists, Martin Nowak and Ben Allen (Researcher) developed an algorithm to predict whether a social structure is likely to favor cooperation. Their findings suggest strong pairwise relationships, rather than loose scattered networks, are more favorable for cooperation. The study is published in Nature.  News Coverage: ...
