HIV prevention hope: Yogurt bugs that make antiviral drugs
A research team led by Bharat Ramratnam, a Brown Medical School professor, has genetically modified bacteria found in yogurt so that the bugs produce a protein proven to block HIV infection in monkeys. The results offer hope for a microbicide that can prevent the spread of HIV, which now affects about 40 million people.

New study explores beetle species with two forms of females
A fascinating new study from the forthcoming issue of The American Naturalist attempts to explain the mysterious persistence of two forms of females in many diving beetle populations. Their findings have important implications for theories of sexual conflict, which arises when the costs and benefits of multiple matings differ for males and females.

Mute swan population helps explain longstanding evolutionary question
In an important new study forthcoming from The American Naturalist, biologists from the University of Oxford tracked a colony of mute swans for more than two decades to explore a longstanding evolutionary question: whether the number of eggs laid by a female bird known as "clutch size" changes in accordance with natural selection.

Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research
Daughters of alcoholics
During the last decade, most of the research on genetic and environmental variables relevant to children of alcoholics has focused on the sons of alcoholics. In contrast, symposium participants at the annual meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism in Vancouver, Canada in June 2004 focused on moderators of risk for alcoholism and other psychopathologies among daughters of alcoholics. Proceedings are published in the February issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research.

Public schools equal or better in math than private or charter schools
Contrary to common wisdom, public schools score higher in math than private ones, when differences in student backgrounds are taken into account. That was the conclusion of researchers Sarah and Christopher Lubienski in a study last year of data from the 2000 National Assessment of Educational Progress. Now they're back with similar and more-extensive results in a follow-up study.
