Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 02:44

The United States has voiced concern about Russia’s launch of a mysterious satellite that is exhibiting “very abnormal behaviour”, raising suspicions about Moscow’s pursuit of new space weapons. The Russian government has insisted the satellite is a “space apparatus inspector”, but an American official said the object’s movements in orbit were “inconsistent with anything seen before” in that capacity. “We don’t know for certain what it is and there is no way to verify it,” said Yleem Poblete, US assistant secretary for arms control, verification and compliance.

Genome points to inbreeding, disease behind bumblebee decline: research

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Wed, 08/15/2018 - 23:21

(Reuters) - Researchers in Canada playing detective with the yellow-banded bumblebee's genome have found evidence that inbreeding and disease are the likely reasons for the decline of the species, York University's Associate Professor Amro Zayed told Reuters. The team led by Zayed, Sheila Colla and biology researcher Clement Kent believes it is the first time the genome of an at-risk bumblebee has been sequenced. "We took one queen and used new sequencing technology that gave us very long stretches of DNA to sequence and assemble the reference genome for Bombus terricola," Zayed told Reuters.
