There’s a gene for that. A study led by University of Utah researchers has identified for the first time the genetic reason Tibetans can live without medical complications on the Tibetan Plateau, which has an average elevation of 14,800 feet. The results of the study, led by senior author Josef Prchal, an internist and hematologist at the U., were published online Sunday in the journal Nature Genetics.

As attitudes toward the drug soften, and science slowly teases out marijuana’s possible benefits for concussions and other injuries, the NFL is reaching a critical point in navigating its tenuous relationship with what is recognized as the analgesic of choice for many of its players. “It’s not, let’s go smoke a joint,” retired NFL defensive lineman Marvin Washington said. ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-582969842014-08-14T22:49:13.714-06:00" id="#license-2014-08-14T22:49:13.714-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

The transparent rodents aren’t alive and they’re for research only, to help scientists study fine details of anatomy. Before they are treated with chemicals, the animals are euthanized and their skin removed. Researchers made their inner organs transparent, but not their bones.
