Scientists genetically engineer pigs immune to costly disease
Gene-editing technology could be propelled into commercial farms within five yearsScientists have genetically engineered pigs to be immune to one of the world ’s most costly animal diseases, in an advance that could propel gene-editing technology into commercial farms within five years.The trial, led by the University of Edinburgh ’s Roslin Institute, showed that the pigs were completely immune to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), a disease that is endemic across the globe and costs the European pig industry nearly £1.5bn in pig deaths and decreased productivity each year.Continue read...

Are Omega-3s Good for Your Brain?
Omega-3 is easily the most popular supplement in America. Roughly 8% of adults—or about 19 million people—take some kind of omega-3 fatty acid supplement, according to the latest figures from the National Institutes of Health. There’s a reason fish oil capsules and other omega-3 supplements are so popular. “Omega-3 fatty acids are involved in many different fundamental [brain] processes,” says Simon Dyall, a principal academic and head of nutrition at Bournemouth University in the UK. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids—namely EPA and DHA—and their metabolites influence gene expres...

High rental costs mean many public service employees in England are spending more than a third of their wages on rent, according to research published today (Tuesday) by UNISON. Hospital porters are struggling the most, with rents effectively unaffordable for them in all nine English regions. The most expensive areas for porters are London, the South East and the East of England where housing costs swallow up over half their take home pay. Teaching assistants do not fare much better – in half a dozen English regions, rental costs are more than a third of their monthly wage. The same is true for refuse drivers in five...
