Research reveals how genetics interact with social forces and the environment

Humans are a diverse species. Every person on Earth has enough DNA to reach Pluto three times. Studying how all this genetic material works, and in particular how genes influence human behavior, is a very complex endeavor, aided by the introduction of large genetic data banks and powerful data science analytical tools to analyze this … Read more

The research deepens our understanding of how humans affect climate change

This was done by isolating and quantifying the effects of the two forces using coupled climate model simulations. The researchers found that aerosol-driven changes in ocean circulation and the associated interbasin heat transport capabilities are more effective at altering the distribution of ocean heat than those caused by globally increasing GHGs. “A better understanding of … Read more
