Iowa's Leopold Center considers future after losing funding

- A university's sustainable agriculture research center is shutting down this summer as the organization's future is uncertain following the Legislature's decision to cut the center's state funding. The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture at Iowa State University's budget was reduced by nearly $2 million. The 30-year-old center will no longer offer grants to support researchers, graduate students, working farmers or field-to-table advocacy programs

In controversial move, researchers repair heart defect gene in human embryos

- WASHINGTON (AP) -- Altering human heredity? In a first, researchers safely repaired a disease-causing gene in human embryos, targeting a heart defect best known for killing young athletes - a big step toward one day preventing a list of inherited diseases. In a surprising discovery, a research team led by Oregon Health and & Science University reported Wednesday that embryos can help fix themselves if scientists jump-start the process early enough

Scientists have produced a food using electricity, and it could solve world hunger

- Finnish scientists have developed a protein that might one day change the world. Researchers at the Lappeenranta University of Technology and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland have produced a single-cell protein using electricity and carbon dioxide. And it can be "grown" in places where it's impossible to grow plants or raise livestock. According to Business Insider, all you need is water, electricity, carbon dioxide, and microbes

Scientists find key 'friendliness' genes that distinguish dogs from wolves

- Your dog is basically a super social wolf, and scientists may have found the gene that makes him want to cuddle with you. A new study shows that friendliness in dogs is associated with the same genes that make some people hyper-social. The study, published this week in the journal Science Advances, found that structural variations in three genes on chromosome 6 are correlated with how much canines socialize with humans

What Makes A Dog Man's Best Friend? It's In The Genes

- Miami, United States: Dogs that are extra friendly share certain genetic similarities with people who are born with a developmental disorder sometimes called the "opposite of autism," which makes them hyper social, researchers said Wednesday. The report in the journal Science Advances pinpointed changes in two genes that are related to extreme social behavior in dogs, and also in people who are born with Williams-Beuren Syndrome

William Shatner Narrates History of NASA's 100-Year-Old Langley Research Center (Video)

- "Star Trek" captain William Shatner narrates a new 45-minute documentary about NASA's Langley Research Center, which celebrates 100 years of solving "fundamental problems of flight" this year, according to the agency. Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory was born in 1917, just months after the United States entered World War I. Langley created many aircraft technologies that we take for granted today, according to a NASA release: propellers, metal airplanes, wing tips, glass cockpits and even faster-than-sound flight
