Researchers Reveal How to Safely Manage Arsenal of Animal Venom Gland

  Toxins enable venomous animals can be outstanding predators with impressive attack and have defence capabilities. They can fulfil various ecological interactions by toxins, including prey capture, defense against predators, and aggressive encounters.
  However, toxins act as a double-edged sword. The venom gland not only functions as an arsenal in which to secrete, store and manage toxin... more
The first Late Pleistocene human DNA from southwestern China reveals Native Americans’ East Asian ancestry

  Over three decades ago, Researchers in Yunnan, China discovered the site from a quarry called Maludong where they unearthed a lot of bones including human bones. The fossils were carbon dated to the Late Pleistocene about 14,000 years ago, approaching to the period of time when modern human migrating to the New World from Asia.
  From the cave, researchers recovered a hominin skull cap t... more
