1 | Update: Number of Genes in Human Genome 4 minutes

A recent article in Science News kinda sounds like the known number of genes in the human genome has doubled since the report cited in a recent episode. Nope. It's just that experts are now often including both protein-coding genes and noncoding (RNA-coding) genes in the total.


2 | New Sensory Structure Found in the Gut 5 minutes

A new sensory structure has been documented in the lining of the mammalian gut. It involves the enteroendocrine cell, which has now been shown to synapse with neurons that lead to the brain via the vagus nerve, sort of like other epithelial-nervous sensory structures like the tactile disk (Merkel disk) arrangement in the skin.
