The Darwin Tree of Life (DToL) project is part of a global initiative to sequence all complex life on Earth, a mission known as the Earth BioGenome Project. It will sequence the genomes of all 60,000 eukaryotic organisms in the British Isles to better understand how DNA translates to the diversity of life.
In epidemiology, prevalence and incidence are among the most fundamental measures when it comes to monitoring disease. But do you know what they mean or how and why they are important? This article takes a look at disease prevalence and incidence, what this information tells us and how it can be used.
NASA's Terra satellite provided before and after images showing the extent of the fires that have been wreaking havoc on Australia's Kangaroo Island.
The top image is from Dec. 16, 2019 and the bottom image was taken on Jan. 07, 2020. The devastation can clearly be seen as one-third of the island (155,000 hectares/383,013 acres) shows burn scars as well as areas that are still on fire. These images were captured by NASA's Terra satellite using its MODIS instrument. The MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instrument is able to overlay reflective bands of color to highlight areas burned and distinguish them from areas of regular vegetation.
