Neandertal DNA and Proteins

With the completion of the Neandertal genome by the team of Dr. Svante Paabo and a closer look at their proteins by Gregory Hannon’s team at CSHL, scientists reveal incredible similarities between Neandertals and humans. Neandertals, the extinct species of what are most likely our closest relatives, lived on earth at the same time as our human ancestors but died out about 30,000 years ago. With the sequence of their genome now complete, we can compare the DNA to humans and chimpanzees to learn more about what makes humans unique as a species. The discovery of fossils is an exciting link to [more...]

The Creative Fundraising of Jim Watson by Anthony Dellureficio ...

In May 1968, less than a year after taking up his appointment as Director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, James D. Watson received a letter on official Playboy letterhead. In their never ending quest to bring quality journalism to their readers, a columnist for Playboy contacted several prominent authors, scientists, and other people he perceived as creative, requesting that they respond to the question, what are the sources of creativity?The columnist suggested two possible viewpoints: creativity is born from an unhappy childhood and creativity comes from a "core of bone-hard selfishness."

Cold Spring Harbor

Cold Spring Harbor is also home to the Dolan DNA Learning Center, the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum and the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium so there are some big lessons to be learned in this tiny little town! But, if you're too cool for school, you may choose to hike, dine or shop instead. You can take a hike in Cold Spring Harbor State Park. The entrance, with its steep, hilly steps, is reminiscent of the Dipsea Trail in Mill Valley, California. Home to great horned owls, red-tailed hawks and other interesting birds, this park is a nice place for birders. The park is [more...]
