HHMI investigators have found a gene that determines whether roundworms prefer to eat alone or in a group. Further studies may give a glimpse at the genetic origins of social behavior.
A team of biologists has determined the three-dimensional structure of an enzyme that allows certain bacteria to resist the killing effects of the antibiotic gentamicin. The structure is also shared by a number of proteins involved in basic biological processes, including circadian rhythms and gene regulation.
