A rabbit breed that performs handstands?

Scientists have discovered the genetic mutation that causes an entire line of French rabbits to walk on their forelegs. The affected gene causes an issue with the spinal cord that inhibits coordination between the forelegs and hind legs—when the rabbits want to move fast, they have no choice but to perform a handstand. The gene forces […]

Does lowered sperm counts put the human species at risk?

Shanna Swan, an epidemiologist at the Icahn School of Medicine in New York, thinks so. Her research shows that sperm counts fell nearly 60% between 1973 and 2011. She’s written a book about the implications of her research and says the impending fertility crisis threatens the human species. Her projections suggest sperm counts fall to zero […]

Saving biodiversity using a lunar gene bank.

Scientists at the University of Arizona have proposed a new, tamper-proof way of saving genetic material: keep them on the moon. The concept of saving genetic material isn't new. Several seed banks already exist on Earth—the picture above is of one in the arctic ocean. The lunar gene bank just takes the efforts to a whole new […]
