1/11 Today we celebrate #NationalBreastfeedingWeek sharing our most recent study published in @jnutritionorg #Azadlab @CHILDSTUDY Happy #Breastfeeding Week! academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/d…
2/11 Human milk fatty acid composition is associated with dietary, genetic, sociodemographic and environmental factors in the @CHILDStudy. We studied determinants and patterns of milk fatty acids using the fountain of @CHILDStudy data, one of the largest Canadian birth cohorts.
3/11 Our study shows that each mother's milk is unique. Milk fatty acid composition varies largely between mothers – especially for polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) (e.g. 39-fold variation for EPA!). n-3 PUFAs were strongly affected by taking fish oil supplements.

Gene editing is becoming easier and cheaper — and that's dangerous

"You're talking about manipulating DNA to create a designer pathogen. 👀
That’s a terrorist threat,"
—former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb apple.news/AmgZqRGLKQeCZF…
NPR reported last week that as synthetic DNA gets cheaper and easier to make, there's growing concern about the technology being used to create bioweapons or dangerous viruses. apple.news/AckU-pAGeTSKy0…
Josiah Zayner, a "biohacker" who became notorious for using CRISPR on himself in 2017, runs The ODIN, a company that sells DIY gene-editing kits online and teaches people how to use CRISPR. The kits are available on Amazon.

Google’s Machine Learning Model Detects Cancer in Real-Time.
Detecting cancer at an early stage has long been a focus area in healthcare. From IBM Watson to other major players, until now.

In honor of #NationalPetDay this thread shows some of the cool findings on #Children and #pets especially #dogs from our research lab @UF
First up: when kids are in a new stressful situation, having their #Dog with them makes them feel less #stress doi.org/10.1111/sode.1…
#Children who call their #Dog over to be petted have lower levels of the #stress sensitive hormone cortisol than children who don't call their dog or children whose dogs hover around them anyway doi.org/10.1111/sode.1…
What leads some #Children to pet their #dogs more than other kids? The results may or may not surprise you...

1/ Excited to share work led by @varshney_arushi genetics.org/content/211/2/… @GeneticsGSA, we compared gene regulatory annotations defined using diverse #epigenomic data across 4 cell types to measure cell specificities and #genetics of #geneRegulation
2/ We observed that stretch and super #enhancers are more cell type-specific whereas HOT regions and broad domains comprise more ubiquitous promoter states
3/ #eQTL in stretch enhancers have significantly smaller effect sizes compared to those in HOT regions. This suggests regulatory buffering where the expression of cell-identity genes is more tightly controlled

The water in the pipeline cannot fix the leaks. Contrary to the advice #WomenInSTEM & #POCinSTEM receive, we cannot actually #leanin to solving the problem of #genderbias & #racialbias in #STEM & #academia. Thanks to @NatureEcoEvo & @RoinnAnLuisigh for this chance to say this. 1/
A few months ago, @Nature published a piece with advice on how senior women can confront #genderbias. While the advice contained therein was useful, the title was enraging. nature.com/articles/d4158…. 2/
It led me to rage tweet a thread of statistics on #genderbias in #STEM, and that thread blew up And then I got incredibly lucky when @RoinnAnLuisigh offered me the opportunity to turn it into a column. Working with her was AMAZING! 1000% fantastic 3/

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

There were no migrations in the Middle ages except towards empty steppes. #genetics #scholarshipwithoutBSishardIknow
2- Even places that underwent yuuuuuge ethnocultural changes such as Turkey show little gene flow. Turkey has tiny Turkic genes.

Historians are clueless about migrations.
3- Tiny rates of migration such as .5% per century can lead to big cumulative effects such as Subsaharan gene flow into Egypt ...

This came in the mail over the weekend. I don't get to read much fiction, so I think I'll enjoy it. #psychology
This whole paragraph (Gardner, 2011, p. xix) is a train wreck of scientific logic. Basically, Gardner says because he doesn't want to be a psychometrician, he doesn't have to gather data to multiple intelligences... and the theory isn't testable anyway.
