When 18,000 years ago humans entered America through the Bering Strait they found a totally different climate and food. A recent study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA (PNAS) shows that this migration left traces in the genome of Native Americans, descendants of those early settlers.

Educational and economic levels of the analyzed countries are highly related to the practice of physical activity of their citizens.
Predictive models of diseases are gaining importance in medicine thanks to their usefulness when customizing treatments. Hence, computational methods based on human biology have become a key factor for the development of customized medicine.

An international consortium depicts the genetic and molecular evolution of insectivorous plants
Natural selection favours fragile and unhealthy old age if it is due to mutations that are beneficial during childhood. As of 40-50 years of age, natural selection is blind because we have already passed on our genes, whether beneficial or not, to our descendants.
Scientists at the IBE find common features in genes associated with diseases. The study, published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics, suggests a degree of biological importance in the genome depending on the linkage of genes to disease
'Rare Disease Discovery’ is a prototype that automatically ranks the rare diseases that are most likely associated to a list of patient symptoms. The prototype shows a precision of moret han 80% on the benchmark tests
