Research Round-Up: Tardigrades’ genes help them survive extreme conditions; Women and children also exposed to hunting-related pathogens; Isotopes in Neolithic cattle teeth suggest a variety of herding strategies

Tardigrades’ genes help them survive extreme conditions Tardigrades are microscopic animals that can withstand complete dehydration, resurrecting years later when water is again available. To investigate the genes underlying their extraordinary ability to survive in extreme conditions, researchers analyzed the…
