Venturing Into the New Territory of Behavioral Sequencing

Genetics control behavioral sequences that are building blocks for complex behavior patterns that shape risk, reward and effort. Hörndli et al. explore the architecture of complex behavior patterns by studying foraging in mice. They develop methods to deconstruct foraging into reproducible behavioral sequences called "modules". Module frequency, timing and order are under genetic control. Credit: Cornelia N.

Infectious diseases caused by bacteria may be treated with antibiotics. But sometimes, the bacterium becomes resistant to the treatment which results in a long and complicated course of disease. Recent studies have shown that combining several types of antibiotics can effectively prevent resistance.

Simulating Evolution To Understand Phenotypic Switching

News

Using computer simulations built on reasonable assumptions and conducted under careful control, computational bioscientists can mimic real biological conditions. Starting with the original founding population (ancient phase), they can evolve the population over several thousand generations to develop an intermediate phase, and then evolve that generation another several thousand generations to develop a derived phase.
