    The evolution of our diet has changed the dog genome

    Posted the 03/01/17
    Unlike wolves, dogs have adapted to be able to feed on our leftovers. At least 7000 years ago, in parallel with the development of agriculture, dogs acquired the ability to digest starch. This was shown by Christophe HITTE and Laetitia LAGOUTTE, from the team of Catherine ANDRÉ, in collaboration with their colleagues of the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon and of the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle....

    Gold at microtubule tips

    Posted the 28/09/16
    Essential components of our cells, microtubules resize permanently. One of the secrets of this dynamic instability resides in the stabilizing cap present at the tips of these structures. Led by scientists from the IGDR, a European collaboration revealed the architecture of this cap at the molecular level, as well as the conformational changes that take place in this key region of the microtubule. This work is published in Nature Cell Biology....
