"Lighting Effects" -- The Discovery Files
Animals can pass the damaging effects of nighttime light exposure to their offspring, a new study has found, adding to a growing body of evidence that there's a health cost to our increasingly illuminated nights. Hamster pups are born with weakened immune systems and impaired endocrine activity when their parents don't receive a natural mix of daylight and darkness prior to mating, found researchers. This research aimed to determine whether parents were passing along possible modifications in genetic messaging, known as epigenetic changes. (Source: The Discovery Files)

Genomics and Precision Health
Whole-genome sequencing is now easily done for very little cost. It is not known how to interpret the results of this testing. Healthy individuals should not have this performed. If someone has a reason to suspect a particular disease with a known genetic association, then whole-genome or targeted sequencing is reasonable to pursue. (Source: JAMA Author Interviews)

The Evolution of Altruism And Its Relationship to Personality
Altruism, put simply, is helping others or cooperating with others, even if it is costly to self. Of course, something like that cannot evolve, unless there are benefits too, associated with such acts of apparent selflessness. Embed from Getty Images Evolutionary theory mandates that there be some genetic payoffs in terms of either inclusive fitness or future benefits to self (reciprocity) for any kind of altruism/ cooperation to evolve. I recommend reading Wikipedia articles on reciprocity, kin selection, and evolution of cooperation if they are not familiar to you or you need a refresher. Cooperation, to start with...
