C. biochemist Paul Roepe—inspired her to expand the program’s focus to include competitions Dantzler talked about how her passion for research pushed her far beyond the assignment in her honors biology course “For students like myself and those who I mentor it can be discouraging to see that there aren’t people who look like you or have the same cultural experiences as you” she said SSP doesn’t collect demographic information on the students who enter the STS competition says Maya Ajmera president and CEO But Caitlin Sullivan program manager of STS says that Asian-American and Caucasian students make up a majority of the participants each year and that advocates are expected to target African-Americans Latinos and Native Americans as well as students whose families have limited incomes She and other educators say that the lack of a support network is probably the biggest obstacle to greater participation by those underrepresented groups The problem is compounded by insufficient opportunities to do hands-on science teachers with too little free time to help students pursue their scientific interests and an application process that can be hard to navigate advocates say “What we do know is that there are quite a few underserved students doing [research programs] but they don’t compete” Ajmera said That’s where advocates can be so important “There’s always the recruiting question” says David Evans executive director of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) based in Arlington Virginia Evans says NSTA works with other organizations to make potential mentors aware of opportunities for their students to participate in science competitions Advocate Scott Bolen research coordinator at the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology in Conyers Georgia says that promoting student research opportunities sometimes makes him feel like an outlier “Science fairs and science competitions—that’s not really a school building priority … So anything that gets these advocates together to talk about what they’re doing to keep their kids successful I think that really is valuable” Last year Bolen mentored some 15 students weekly in what he called Bolen’s Breakfast Club Every student participated in the school’s science fair and one was accepted into the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix In his second year as an advocate Bolen hopes to extend access to an online discussion board for students across the county “[The advocates] talk about deadlines and dates and what these competitions are looking for” Bolen said “If teachers don’t know who to ask then that becomes an obstacle to their students” In Texas second-year advocate Russ Stukel plans to expand the program he created for middle school students He said SSP contacted him last year based on the success of the decade-old high school research program at the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science (TAMS) Stukel assistant dean for student life at TAMS at the University of North Texas in Denton says his goal is to convince students to reach for the stars even when they are young “You don’t have to have a million dollars or a giant brain to conduct an experiment” Stukel said “They’re like ‘Oh [research] is for somebody else’ And our response is ‘No You do experiments daily but you don’t realize it’” This year’s program will start in the summer he says so that the middle-schoolers “can hit the ground running” Dantzler expects to graduate next spring with a double major in biology and African studies and aspires to be a physician In the meantime she aims to grow her cohort this year to five women “I’ve always believed that science should be a very inclusive field” she said “We all have an obligation to help all students become involved [in research]”The chemical chain of events that led to the origin of life on Earth is likely forever lost to the mists of time But some of our earliest ancestors—including the microbial Eve from which all modern cells descended—left behind traces in the genes they passed to their descendants To track these shared genes geneticists have surveyed nearly 2000 genomes of modern microbes Now researchers report that they’ve used this sort of genome mining to reveal new insights about the daily life of our last universal common ancestor or LUCA The results suggest that LUCA was a heat-loving microbe that fed on hydrogen gas and lived in a world devoid of oxygen bolstering strong suspicions that life on Earth formed in and around hydrothermal vents such as those found near undersea volcanoes Today the cells that make up all life on Earth are clustered into three broad groups: bacteria archaea and eukaryotes The first two comprise prokaryotes—cells without a nucleus A distant union between these two formed eukaryotes—cells with a nucleus that make up all the complex multicellular organisms including plants and animals Genetic studies to date have revealed some tantalizing clues about LUCA Most evidence suggests that like modern cells LUCA stored genetic information using DNA It also built proteins and used adenosine triphosphate as its currency for energy But it has been harder for geneticists to know other details of LUCA’s lifestyle One major complication: Microbes not only pass genes to their progeny but also swap them among their neighbors in a process called horizontal gene transfer This makes it hard to tell whether genes shared by separate microbes reflect a shared lineage or whether some bugs were just better at spreading their genetic material far and wide And that makes it harder to pin down LUCA’s lifestyle To get closer to doing just that researchers led by William Martin an evolutionary biologist at Heinrich Heine University in Dusseldorf Germany took a more stringent approach to identifying genes that were likely inherited Rather than looking for genes shared by a single species bacteria and archaea they searched for those shared by at least two species of bacteria and two archaea This gave them an initial count of some 6 million genes grouped into more than 286000 related gene families Further analysis revealed that only 355 of these gene families were broadly distributed across all modern organisms and thus could be tracked from an ancestral species through all of its descendants That made the 355 gene families likely LUCA candidates As Martin and his colleagues report in today’s issue of Nature Microbiology these genes aren’t randomly scattered throughout modern organisms but fall into distinct groups that reflect LUCA’s likely metabolism Most notably they reveal that LUCA was an anaerobe that grew in an environment devoid of the oxygen that most cells today require That jibes with what scientists know about Earth 4 billion years ago a period known as the late heavy bombardment Not long after the planet’s formation meteors and comets rained steadily down the seas periodically boiled away and the atmosphere lacked oxygen The gene scans also show that LUCA was almost certainly a heat-loving “thermophile” that fed on hydrogen gas (H2) as others have proposed Today many microbes produce H2 But because LUCA preceded them it would have had to belly up to a geological source of hydrogen such as a hydrothermal vent like those found near an undersea volcano James Lake an evolutionary biologist at the University of California Los Angeles calls the new work “remarkable” and “an important step forward” Lake also notes that LUCA shares its lifestyle with two groups of modern microbes: clostridium a genus of anaerobic bacteria and methanogens a group of H2-eating archaea So even though the LUCA is long gone its closest relatives may still be with usWritten by Agencies | Mumbai |

Security firm finds Apple Macs vulnerable to ‘firmware’ attacks Related News Since 2015 Apple Inc has tried to protect its Mac line of computers from a form of hacking that is extremely hard to detect but it has not been entirely successful in getting the fixes to its customers according to research released on Friday by Duo Security Duo examined what is known as firmware in the Mac computers Firmware is an in-built kind of software that is even more basic than an operating system like Microsoft Windows or macOS When a computer is first powered on — before the operating system has even booted up — firmware checks to make sure that basic components like a hard disk and processor are present and tells them what to do That makes malicious code hiding in it hard to spot In most cases firmware is a hassle to update with the latest security patches Updates have to be carried out separately from the operating system updates that are more commonplace In 2015 Apple started bundling firmware updates along with operating system updates for Mac machines in an effort to ensure firmware on them stayed up to date But Duo surveyed 73000 Mac computers operating in the real world and found that 42 percent of them were not running the firmware they should have been based on their operating system In some models – such as the 215-inch iMac released in late 2015 – 43 percent of machines had out-of-date firmware That left many Macs open to hacks like the “Thunderstrike” attack where hackers can control a Mac after plugging an Ethernet adapter into the machine’s so-called thunderbolt port Paradoxically it was only possible to find the potentially vulnerable machines because Apple is the only computer maker that has sought to make firmware updates part of its regular software updates making it both more trackable and the best in the industry for firmware updates Rich Smith director of research and development at Duo told Reuters in an interview Duo said that it had informed Apple of its findings before making them public on Friday In a statement Apple said it was aware of the issue and is moving to address it”Apple continues to work diligently in the area of firmware security and we’re always exploring ways to make our systems even more secure” the company said in a statement “In order to provide a safer and more secure experience in this area macOS High
