ColonStudy Advances Understanding of Colon Cancer and Colitis

A new study led by Professor of Cell Biology and Toxicologist Frances M. Sladek explains how the distribution of two forms of a transcription factor in the colon influence the risk of disease. Both forms are important and require an appropriate balance between them in the gut. The next step in the research is to identify foods that disrupt this balance and those that help preserve it.

EmbryoExploiting Male-Killing Bacteria to Control Insects

A team of scientists including Assistant Professor of Entomology Omar Akbari have discovered a key mechanism that drives a bacteria that kills male insects, a development that could potentially be exploited to control insect pest species in the future. In a paper published in Current Biology, they describe how the bacterium Spiroplasma initiates male killing by directly targeting the dosage compensation complex of an organism, which equalizes gene expression between the males and females.

GalaxyGraduate Student Irene Shivaei Leads Team Tracing Star Formation Rates in Distant Galaxies

Combining spectra recorded by the MOSFIRE high-resolution near-infrared spectrometer at the W. M. Keck Observatory telescopes with infrared images from the Spitzer Space Telescope, the Herschel Space Observatory, and optical images of the Hubble Space Telescope, a team lead by graduate student Irene Shivaei has created a complete multi-wavelength picture of galaxies. Their results help to build the foundations of galaxy evolution studies that ccan help predict a physical quantity (in this case, the star-formation rate) of a distant galaxy from the light that telescopes capture.
