Ancient DNA Rewrites Japanese History
An interdisciplinary team of researchers from Japan and Ireland have discovered that modern day populations in Japan have a tripartite genetic origin, rather dual genomic ancestry as previously thought. The study is published in Science Advances.
New Technique Reveals Secrets of Brain Evolution
Humans have a large and intricately folded neocortex that accounts for many of our intellectual abilities and sets us apart from all other species. A research team has identified an important factor that could have led to this brain development. This finding could pave the way for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
Better Lifestyle Leads to Happiness, Not the Other Way Round
New research has found that fruit and vegetable consumption and exercise can increase levels of happiness.

Why We Need To Investigate Menstrual Changes After COVID-19 Vaccination
Technology Networks interviewed Dr. Victoria Male to learn more about the plausible link between COVID-19 vaccines and menstrual cycles, and what kind of research she would like to see in this space. Male also discussed why a lack of conversation surrounding menstruation may lead individuals to conceal information in this context.
Will UK Public Approval of Whole Genome Sequencing for Newborn Screenings Lead to National Rollout?
There are still a number of critical questions that need to be answered before WGS becomes a staple of neonatal care in the NHS. What are its benefits? What are the costs involved? What potential ethical issues does it incur?
