New Study Reveals Genomic Factors Influence Yeast Metabolic Niche Breadth The concept of niche generalists and specialists stands across the tree of life. Overall, generalists perform relatively well across many ecological niches, while specialists are experts in thriving in their own niche.
Deep Earth electrical grid mystery solved To “breathe” in an environment without oxygen, bacteria in the ground beneath our feet depend upon a single family of proteins to transfer excess electrons, produced during the “burning” of nutrients, to electric hairs called nanowires projecting from their surface, found by researchers at UCIBIO-NOVA School of Science and Technology, NOVA University Lisbon (UCIBIO NOVA FCT) and Yale University.
