Creepy Crawlie Therapy?
Discussion Humans are only one species among the multitudes that inhabit the earth. While many species are used by humans for food, clothing or shelter, as a higher evolved organism, humans are particularly aware of other species that move as they could be a potential predator or cause injury. This wariness is protective, but moving animal species can be domesticated (e.g. dogs, horses), farmed (e.g. cattle, goats) or harvested (e.g. fish, silk) for human use for food, clothing or shelter and also for medicinal use. Learning Point Medical leeches have been used since ancient times. The most commonly used leech is Hirudo me...

Bacterial protein serves as sensor
A method capable of precisely measuring the size of individual molecules has been developed by scientists. To do this, the researchers used the protein aerolysin from the bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila instead of the protein previously used for this purpose, alpha-hemolysin from the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus.
