Dewdrops on a spiderweb reveal the physics behind cell structures .
The physics at work in the beading of dewdrops on a spiderweb is the same as that which drives the sub-microscopic beading of a protein called TPX2, which is necessary to building microtubules (the skeleton of the cell) and which also plays a role in some cancers.
Mange in Yellowstone wolves reveals insights into human scabies and conservation biology .
Researchers combined 25 years of wolf observations and samples from 408 wolves to search for patterns in genetic diversity associated with mange. They?found support for the "monoculture theory":?wolves with severe mange tended to have less genetic variation than wolves with mild symptoms.
