The work was part of an overall project called, quite naturally, the Ruminant Genome Project. All three teams were made up of members from several institutions in China and a few other countries. All three groups have published their findings in the journal Science. Also, Dai Fei Elmer Ker and Yunzhi Peter Yang with the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Stanford University, respectively, have published a Perspective piece outlining the work by the three teams in the same journal issue.

Domesticated ruminants such as sheep and cows are important to humans. Others are important because of their unique physical characteristics. Deer antlers, for example, grow exceptionally quickly, and reindeer live in the Arctic without freezing or suffering depression due to long winter nights. In this new effort, all three teams sought to learn more about particular aspects of these unique mammals.In the first study, the researchers assembled the genomes of 44 ruminants covering all six members of the Ruminantia families. They created a phylogenetic tree for the group, which helped to clear up some of the mysteries in the family history. It also showed that the group as a whole suffered severe declines in population coinciding with humans migrating out of Africa.The work by the second team involved studying ruminant headgear—horns, antlers, pronghorns and ossicones. They found that despite their physical differences, the bony headgear shared many similarities. They also found that the reason deer antlers regenerate so quickly is because they exploit cancer-associated signaling paths. The deer also have tumor-suppressing genes that prevent tumors from growing in their antlers—information that could be useful in cancer research.

Credit: Dr. Wen Wang, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Mr. Zhe Si The third team focused most specifically on reindeer—they wanted to know how the deer manage to survive in such a cold, harsh environment, and why they do not succumb to depression during long, dark winters. To find out, they studied the reindeer genome and discovered that reindeer have unique genes related to metabolizing vitamin D and circadian arrhythmicity, and also for female antler growth. And their unique digestive system helps them survive on limited plant growth. © 2019 Science X Networklast_img read more

first_img22nd December marked a win for U.S. government in terms of efficiency, accountability, and transparency of open data. Following the Senate vote held on 19th December, Congress passed the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking (FEBP) Act (H.R. 4174, S. 2046). Title II of this package is the Open, Public, Electronic and Necessary (OPEN) Government Data Act, which requires all non-sensitive government data to be made available in open and machine-readable formats by default. The federal government possesses a huge amount of public data which should ideally be used to improve government services and promote private sector innovation. According to Data Coalition, “the open data proposal will mandate that federal agencies publish their information online, using machine-readable data formats”. What does the bill mandate? There are a number of practical things the bill will do, which should have real benefits for both citizens and federal organizations: Makes Federal data more accessible to the public, and requires all agencies to publish an inventory of all their “data assets” Encourages government organizations to use data to make decisions Ensuring better data governance by requiring Chief Data Officers in Federal agencies After some minor corrections made on Saturday, December 22nd, the Senate passed the resolution required to send the bill onwards to the president’s desk. There are two things which were amended in this act before passing it on to the president: The text was amended so that it only applied to CFO Act agencies, not the Federal Reserve or smaller agencies. There was acarve-out “for data that does not concern monetary policy,” which relates to the Federal Reserve, among others. Why is the open data proposal required? For many years, businesses, journalists, academics, civil society groups, and even other government agencies have relied on data that the federal government makes freely available in open formats online. However, while many federal government agencies publish open data, there has never been a law mandating the federal government to do so. The data available in a machine-readable format and catalogued online will help individuals, organizations, and other government offices to use it while preserving privacy and national security concerns. Open data has been an effective platform for innovation in the public sectors supporting significant economic value while increasing transparency, efficiency, and accountability in government operations. It has worked towards powering new tools and services to address some of the country’s most pressing economic and social challenges. Michele Jolin, CEO and co-founder of Results for America, said in a statement. “We commend Speaker Ryan, Senator Murray and their bipartisan colleagues in both chambers for advancing legislation that will help build evidence about the federally-funded practices, policies and programs that deliver the best outcomes. By ensuring that each federal agency has an evaluation officer, an evaluation policy and evidence-building plans, we can maximize the impact of public investments.” U.S Citizens also called this bill a big ‘milestone’ in the history of the country and accepted the news with vigor. You can read the entire backstory on what’s in the bill and how it was passed at E Pluribus Unum.

first_img The family of a fallen soldier from Greenville today joined state Rep. Rick Outman as Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation to name a portion of M-57 the “Joseph Prentler Memorial Highway.”U.S. Army Spc. Joseph T. Prentler was killed while serving in Afghanistan on Oct. 4, 2010, when insurgents attacked his military vehicle using an improvised explosive device. The Carson City-Crystal High School graduate was 20 years old.Prentler’s mother, Tammy Prentler, was present at today’s ceremonial bill signing. Also present were his sister, Tanya Dale; and his brother-in-law, Craig Thompson.“Naming a portion of a local highway for this brave young man, who gave everything for his country, is just one way we can honor him,” said Rep. Outman, R-Six Lakes. “Byy doing so we can keep alive the memory of Specialist Prentler and the ultimate sacrifice he made.”##### Categories: News 10Mar Ceremonial bill signing names highway in honor of fallen soldierlast_img read more

first_img Bill funds development of local paddle parkState Rep. Pamela Hornberger on Thursday joined her colleagues in voting for legislation to fund dozens of recreation projects across the state, using Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund money with local matching funds.Hornberger, of Chesterfield Township, said the improvements, developments and land acquisitions use dedicated money for such projects to fund projects at parks, trails and other recreational facilities across the state.The $379,000 project will pay for a development to transform 3.14 acres of property into Chesterfield Township’s first paddle park. The project will develop the Webber Paddle Park with the following amenities: parking lot for paddlers with accessible parking space, parking lot with access to the fishing pier with accessible parking space, universally accessible fishing pier and accessible kayak launch with 10-foot wide route to launch to accommodate a two-person carry to the launch, picnic shelter and restrooms. When the project is complete, this park will give the public access via non-motorized watercraft to the Salt River and Lake St. Clair.“We have so many natural resources in our state, and this development will give families, outdoor lovers and tourists more opportunities to enjoy our local waterways,” Hornberger said. “Development of this park will give people access to fishing, family picnics, kayaking, canoeing and more.”The funding is comprised of revenue from the lease of state land and is designated on an annual basis in partnership with local governments for the projects.The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.#####The bill is Senate Bill 76.
