Start updating your #BlackDeath lectures, folks! Hannah Barker has just released a pre-print of her eye-popping, paradigm-shifting study: "Laying the Corpses to Rest: Grain, Embargoes, and Yersinia pestis in the Black Sea, 1346-1348," scholar.google.com/scholar_url?ur… #GlobalMiddleAges
I'll be tweeting some significant findings from this paper over the next several days, as we build up to next week's "Mother of All Pandemics" session sponsored by the @MedievalAcademy (medievalacademy.org/general/custom…). Today, just fn. 3, on Issyk Kul.
fn. 3: "Since Lake Issyk Kul is located near a plague reservoir, this outbreak may have no causal connection with the Second Pandemic." Okay, so what's Issyk Kul, and what has it ever played any role in #BlackDeath narratives?

Extravagant success of Ashkenazi #Jews in wide range of intellectual domains serves as solid refutation to already exhausted #woke narrative of oppression, victimhood, & intersectionality. Why?/1

"..., and medicine/physiology. In the second half of the 20th century, when Nobel Prizes began to be awarded to people from all over the world, that figure rose to 29 %. So far, in the 21st century, it has been 32 %. Jews constitute ~0.2 % of the world’s population."/3

Have you ever wondered when we should pursue genetic testing in paediatric patients with cystic kidneys?#nephtwitter #medtwitter #NephMadness #Genetics. But first a quick primer on paediatric genetic kidney cystic diseases😃😃
Paediatric genetic cystic kidneys are heterogenous group of disorders. The age of presentation, clinical features and family history are often useful for coming to a diagnosis. linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S…
But first let's talk about 4 common genetic causes of cystic kidney disease in children:
🌟ADPKD
🌟 ARPKD
🌟Nephronophthisis
🌟 HNF-Beta related disease

Thrilled we finished this 8 yr study w/@NeuroCellPress Wonder what oxygen, blood vessels, Hif1 has to do with cell polarity & neuron migration? Genetics, gaussian & lattice light-sheet crack the case! Cerebellar blood vessels in cyan #cellfie #Science
url:cell.com/neuron/fulltex…
The story starts w/great chances to interact w/ world-class scientists @StJudeResearch On a visit here, Bill Kaelin @kaelin_lab asked me a question: your favorite polarity reg protein is hypoxia-responsive, does O2 impact migration initiation? Following up led to this study.
Everyone #TakeABow that did the #work: this paper is our second in row where we had at least four equal contribution first authors. A multiyear and multidiscipline project like this needs teamwork.

Okay, since @KevinMKruse now seems to have given his imprimatur to this piece in the @washingtonpost today about #nCoV2019 & past plagues, it seems time for a mini-thread about #medhist & hot takes. #epitwitter: you might want to listen in on this, as it effects you, too.
@KevinMKruse @washingtonpost The @washingtonpost piece by Eisenberg et al. makes 3 main points: 1) that the #BlackDeath (the #plague pandemic usually dated to the mid-14thC) is the most commonly invoked analogy when people think of epidemics; 2) that not all "plague" epidemics/pandemics were alike; and 3) ..
@KevinMKruse @washingtonpost ... that there's an "outbreak narrative" that "we replay .. as a script with each new outbreak — whether real or fictional." First, some background on what #histmed (History of Medicine) is: it's probably pretty much as you would assume from its name. The field of history that ..

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

I've had 24 hours to think about @TheACMG's decision NOT to support #genetic counselors bill HR3235, The Access to Genetic Counseling Act. @TheACMG does not support genetic counselors right to order genetic testing. 1/5
@TheACMG I am a certified genetic counselor with >25 years experience in the field. I've been the senior author on 4 published papers re: 'errors in genetic testing', including errors due to the wrong test being ordered. 2/5 #gcchat
@TheACMG Errors documented have resulted in #patients having prophylactic surgeries they did not need, being diagnosed w late-stage cancers, and huge waste of #healthcare dollars. All of this because a #genetics professional was not involved in the ordering process. 3/5

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.

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/
