Bacteria don't always work 'just in time'
In nature production processes are following the 'just-in-time-principle': Only what is really necessary will be provided. But according to a report of Bioinformaticians from Jena University (Germany) in the Science Magazine 'Nature Communications', bacteria like for instance Escherichia coli don't always work according to the 'just in time'-principle at all.

The Biodiversity Data Journal: Readable by humans and machines
Launched on Sept. 16, 2013, the Biodiversity Data Journal and the associated Pensoft Writing Tool offer several innovations -- some of them unique -- at every stage of the publishing process. The workflow allows for authoring, peer-review and dissemination to take place within the same online, collaborative platform. Data can be embedded in the narrative for a better readability and either downloaded by (human) users or harvested by computers.

New NIH grants to investigate disease-related variations in genetic makeup
Five research teams have received new four-year awards to study the genomics of disease susceptibility in ethnically diverse populations. The projects aim to unravel the subtle variations in genetic makeup among groups -- including African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanics and more -- that may account for differences in risks for conditions such as high blood pressure and high blood lipids, in addition to common diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
