Tiny water flea has more genes than you.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110203...55d2F0ZXJmbGU-

WASHINGTON (AFP) – A tiny, translucent water flea that can reproduce without sex and lives in ponds and lakes has more genes than any other creature, said scientists who have sequenced the crustacean's genome.

Daphnia pulex, named after the nymph in Greek mythology who transforms into a tree in order to escape the lovestruck Apollo, has 31,000 genes compared to humans who have about 23,000, said the research in the journal Science.

Often studied by scientists who want to learn about the effects of pollution and environmental changes on water creatures, the almost-microscopic freshwater Daphnia is the first crustacean to have its genome sequenced.

But just because this creature -- viewed as the canary in the gold mine of the world's waters -- has more genes doesn't necessarily mean they are all unique, explained project leader John Colbourne.

"Daphnia's high gene number is largely because its genes are multiplying, by creating copies at a higher rate than other species," said Colbourne, genomics director at the Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics.

Daphnia has a large number of never-before seen genes, as well as a big chunk of the same genes found in humans, the most of any insects or crustacean so far known to scientists.

"More than one-third of Daphnia's genes are undocumented in any other organism -- in other words, they are completely new to science," said Don Gilbert, coauthor and Department of Biology scientist at IU Bloomington.

200 paper planes dropped from space via weather balloon launched in Germany, each contained a memory card so they could be tracked. They were found as far away as Canada, India, and possibly South Africa!

Check out PBS' Nova Science Now web-series. Tonight's show is about the human brain and its inner workings. Subject matter touches perception, time, magnets and odd brain farts.

Episode should be up by morning. Check out out here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/
I'll be poking around this site soon enough! Cool.

Now that is espionage!! You would think the story itself would be classified -- if it wouldn't immediately identify who did it. Awesome!!

It's my understanding that space is generally regarded as beginning at an altitude of 60 miles -- not that 23 miles is shabby!

How about growing artificial organs? http://video.pbs.org/video/1754457671

They take a rat's heart, strip it of cells, reinsert the cells and restart it. It is freaky to watch the heart beat.

I was doing a lot of googling about it last week when we had a vendor's control programmer in trying to get our PLCs working.
This stuxnet is going to make for the most popular movie ever among geeks and hackers.

My favorite rotation in school was the open heart surgical experience.
I just could not believe how they crack and close the chest.
My favorite part was the restart!
