[Report] On the origins of oxygenic photosynthesis and aerobic respiration in Cyanobacteria
The origin of oxygenic photosynthesis in Cyanobacteria led to the rise of oxygen on Earth ~2.3 billion years ago, profoundly altering the course of evolution by facilitating the development of aerobic respiration and complex multicellular life. Here we report the genomes of 41 uncultured organisms related to the photosynthetic Cyanobacteria (class Oxyphotobacteria), including members of the class Melainabacteria and a new class of Cyanobacteria (class Sericytochromatia) that is basal to the Melainabacteria and Oxyphotobacteria. All members of the Melainabacteria and Sericytochromatia lack photosynthetic machinery, indicati...

[Perspective] Breathing to inspire and arouse
Breathing is one of the perpetual rhythms of life that is often taken for granted, its apparent simplicity belying the complex neural machinery involved. This behavior is more complicated than just producing inspiration, as breathing is integrated with many other motor functions such as vocalization, orofacial motor behaviors, emotional expression (laughing and crying), and locomotion (1, 2). In addition, cognition can strongly influence breathing. Conscious breathing during yoga, meditation, or psychotherapy can modulate emotion, arousal state, or stress (3). Therefore, understanding the links between breathing behavior, ...

TPR Podcast Episode #14: VX and the Assassination of Kim Jong-Nam
  On February 13, 2017 Kim Jong Nam — half-brother to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — was attacked by two women in Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International airport. The attacks smeared some substance on his face. Within 10 or 15 minutes Mr. Kim collapsed in the airport medical clinic and died apparently in the ambulance on way to hospital.   Days later, Malaysian authorities announced that the nerve agent VX was detected in samples taken from Mr. Kim’s face.   Security camera footage from the airport showing the attack on Mr. Kim and its aftermath can be viewed here.

Study: Why even targeted lung cancer therapies eventually fail
Even when patients are treated with targeted cancer therapies, many lung cancer patients suffer a recurrence. Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory wanted to uncover how some cancers escape the power of targeted treatment. Their work was published in the journal eLife this week. The team of scientists, lead by Raffaella Sordella, found that a tiny subset of cells in or around a cancerous tumor can change over time and become the seeds of a killer relapse.

Acorda plans NDA for inhaled Parkinson ’ s drug after touting long-term safety data
Acorda Therapeutics (NSDQ:ACOR) touted data from 2 ongoing, long-term safety studies of its inhaled Parkinson’s therapy.

When Bullets Fly, These Medics Grab Their Packs And Treat Patients On The Run
This article is part of HuffPost’s Project Zero campaign, a yearlong series on neglected tropical diseases and efforts to fight them. Everyone takes work home with them sometimes. But in civil war-torn South Sudan, some health workers take theirs on the run. In areas where armed groups have stormed into hospitals and shot people dead in their beds, or gutted and burned clinics, staff for the medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) at times has had to run with patients and hide in the bush to continue treatment. Last year, a group of MSF health workers in the particularly hard-hit town of Leer, in Unity ...
