  • Benefits of sharing
    A swift and effective response to emerging infectious diseases demands that researchers have ready access to the latest data on the pathogens responsible. There is still a long way to go to ensure this.
  • A good precedent
    Jimmy Carter’s efforts to eradicate Guinea worm should be applauded.
  • Outside the bubble
    Governments must stop proposing solutions and invest in large-scale removal of carbon dioxide.
  • Change the system to halt harassment
    Universities and their senior staff must do more to deter, detect and punish all forms of inappropriate behaviour, says Joan Schmelz.
  • Parasitology: Honeybee virus spread by human activity
    The commercial trade in honeybees has helped to spread a deadly bee virus around the globe over the past century.Deformed wing virus reduces the winter survival of European honeybees (Apis mellifera), and could be a factor in the large colony loss...
  • Genomics: Early risers share genetic signature
    Three different teams have identified genetic variants that are associated with being a morning person.Youna Hu, David Hinds and their team at 23andMe, a personal-genetics firm in Mountain View, California, analysed genome data from nearly 90,000 ...
  • Climate change: More carbon from planted forests
    Planting trees will not necessarily slow climate change.Kim Naudts at the Laboratory of Climate Science and Environment in Gif-sur-Yvette, France, and her colleagues paired a history of land-use in Europe with land and atmospheric models to study ...
  • Neuroscience: Brain cells in wells make amyloid
    Many different types of brain cell can secrete high levels of the peptide amyloid-β, which forms the brain plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease.To detect molecules from single brain cells, Tracy Young-Pearse at Harvard Medical School in Bos...
  • Neuroscience: Molecule protects ageing neurons
    A small molecule reverses the neuronal deterioration that is typically found in middle-aged animals.Compared with the neurons of young animals, nerve cells in middle-aged rats generally have fewer branches. Their connections, or synapses, also see...
  • Palaeontology: Mammal with a dinosaur nose
    A wildebeest-like creature that lived in Africa 70,000 years ago had a trumpet-shaped nasal passage, similar in shape to those of some dinosaurs.Rusingoryx atopocranion was previously known from incomplete specimens, but a team led by Haley O'Brie...
