This week, Trisha, Kat, Greg, and Diego host an episode full of more laughing children than a McDonald’s playplace. We interview local Stanford Social and Developmental psychologist Rodolfo Cortes Barragan, who has been studying the development of altruism in children, then discuss squids who can change their own RNA.
This week is all about how life finds a way… well unless you’re a dinosaur. Join hosts Dave, Diego, Emily, and Greg as we cover a new protein that breaks the central dogma, a new way to develop antibiotics, and a new discovery that could explain why the dinosaurs went extinct.
This week, we cover robot swarms – what it takes to get over a thousand robots to behave as one. We explore the origins of the super-athlete gene found in Tibetans. Finally, we cover a cool new way plants and parasites can share messages.
Lisl, Diego, Dave and guest host Dr. Mary Cavanagh speak with graduate students Jason Buenrostro and Lauren Chircus on building new technologies, RNA-protein interactions, and strawberry-rhubarb pies. Plus, we cover a newly discovered female penis and what really happens during conception (articles not related!).
