A group of Stanford and Brown students have collaborated on a new platform, Cross-Link, which aims to make scientific research more accessible to journalists and the general public.
In a recent study that examined global population trends, biologists at Stanford University and National Autonomous University of Mexico found that extreme population loss is affecting species across all phylogenetic groups, both rare and common.
60,000 years ago, when humans were migrating northward from Africa into colder climates, a single-letter DNA switch–from a G to an A–proved to help humans brave more frigid temperatures. Stanford University researchers have found, however, that this genetic change has also brought decreased height and resulted in increased risk of arthritis 1.3 to 1.8-fold in Eurasian populations.
In this feature, The Daily interviewed four student publications — the Stanford Political Journal, The Dualist, Probe Magazine and Fascinate — to get a small glimpse of how they balance student life with running a journal and reaching an audience.
A recent study by Stanford biologists unearths new evidence that a limited selection of a person or animal’s genetic information is sufficient to significantly predict the contents of their DNA, which could have implications for working with incomplete or damaged sets of DNA, say the researchers.
Researchers at Stanford have made mice glow using a new gene therapy technique, showing that the process can work on living animals. It has a variety of applications to many central problems in biology and medicine, including immunology and cancer research.

A group of students huddled around a lab table in the Shriram Center for Bioengineering & Chemical Engineering to create miniature human bodies — made of living mushrooms.
