Speed of animal evolution enhanced by cooperative behaviour
Speed of animal evolution enhanced by cooperative behaviour
A study by scientists from the University of Cambridge has revealed how cooperative behaviour between insect family members changes how rapidly body size evolves - with the speed of evolution increasing when individual animals help one another. In some populations, we allowed parents to help their offspring, but in other populations we removed the parents.

Readily available antibiotic could help to curb lung damage from TB
Imperial scientists have found how a common antibiotic could help reduce lung destruction in people with Tuberculosis (TB). TB is a leading cause of mortality worldwide, causing 1.8 million deaths in 2015 and infecting one in three people globally, with or without symptoms. Left untreated, the disease can cause massive tissue damage in the lungs, leading to a contagious cough and eventual death.

Himalayan powerhouses: how Sherpas have evolved superhuman energy efficiency
Sherpas have evolved to become superhuman mountain climbers, extremely efficient at producing the energy to power their bodies even when oxygen is scarce, suggests new research published today in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) . Sherpas have spent thousands of years living at high altitudes, so it should be unsurprising that they have adapted to become more efficient at using oxygen and generating energy Andrew Murray The findings could help scientists develop new ways of treating hypoxia - lack of oxygen - in patients.

Next-gen solar cells could be improved by atomic-scale redesign
Researchers from the Department of Chemistry have uncovered the mechanism that causes new solar cells to break down in air, paving the way for a solution. Solar cells harness energy from the sun and provide an alternative to non-renewable energy sources like fossil fuels. However, they face challenges from costly manufacturing processes and poor efficiency - the amount of sunlight converted to useable energy.
