Isolation of an archaeon at the prokaryote-eukaryote interface, biorxiv (2019). DOI: 10.1101/726976 © 2019 Science X Network The tree that represents all known living things has three main branches: eukaryotes, bacteria and archaea. The first branch includes existing organisms, including humans; the second comprises familiar microbes—but archaea are less well-known. They, too, are microbes, and resemble bacteria, but are actually different. In recent years, some scientists have suggested that eukaryotes evolved through interactions between archaea and bacteria. Some have taken a further step and suggested that a certain kind of archaea, Asgard archaea, may have been that which interacted with bacteria, resulting in the first eukaryotes. Such theories emerged after researchers subjected samples of mud from the deep ocean to DNA analysis—the results showed evidence of both archaea and eukaryote-like genomes. The samples were given the name Lokiarchaea, because they were uncovered from an area close to Loki’s Castle, a deep-sea hydrothermal vent. These theories were met with skepticism, however, due to the possibility of sediment contamination. In this new effort, the researchers have overcome that argument by growing and testing pure samples of Lokiarchaea in their lab.The work consisted of obtaining sand from the seafloor and putting it in a special chamber that mimicked the conditions under which the mud was found—deep pressure and exposure to a lot of methane. The researchers report that it took five years for the microbes to reproduce in detectable numbers. Once that happened, they separated the microbes into glass tubes, and once again waited for signs of a colony to develop. That took another year. At that point, the team collected samples and carried out a DNA study that confirmed the microbes were Lokiarchaea. More time passed as the researchers allowed the colony to grow. Twelve years into the project, the team finally had a large enough sample for more sophisticated testing. DNA analysis showed that the Lokiarchaea genome did have eukaryote-like genes, strongly bolstering the theory that eukaryotes evolved due to interactions between archaea and bacteria.last_img read more

Suranjan Das resumes duty as VC mum on students union poll

first_imgKolkata: Jadavpur University Vice-Chancellor Prof Suranjan Das on Tuesday refused to comment on the holding of students’ union election in the varsity. Das, who was on leave after he was heckled during a protest by students on February 19 and hospitalised for two days, resumed his duties on Tuesday and held discussion with teachers and students union representatives on academic issues. The V-C told reporters he has nothing new to comment when asked about his views on holding students’ union polls at the earliest as demanded by the Arts Faculty Students’ Union (AFSU), Science Faculty Students Union (SFSU) and Faculty of Engineering and Technology Students’ Union (FETSU). Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose”I don’t have anything to comment on this issue today,” he said. Pro-VC Pradip Kumar Ghosh had sent a letter to the Higher Education department on February 25, requesting it to facilitate a tripartite discussion among the university, students and the higher education department on the issue of students’ union polls. The V-C had earlier maintained the JU cannot take any decision on its own about holding the students union polls and any decision on this issue can only be taken by the government.last_img read more

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Friday, December 9, 2016 TORONTO — Air Transat and Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada hosted hundreds of children with a life-threatening diagnosis for a special flight to meet Santa yesterday.The flights, which took off from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, were part of Air Transat’s 12th annual Flights in Search of Santa, a joint effort in partnership with Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. For the second year in a row, a flight from Paris carrying some 50 sick children and their families also took off in search of Santa.Onboard the flights Air Transat announced a $98,975 donation to Children’s Wish, which represents the amounts collected over the past year as part of the airline’s ‘Small Change, Big Hearts’ program and other initiatives. Yesterday’s donation is in addition to the more than $5 million raised for Children’s Wish since the inception of the partnership between the two organizations.“There is truly nothing better than seeing a child smile in wonderment, and we in turn are delighted to bring a little magic into the lives of hundreds of children across Canada and in France,” said Jean-Francois Lemay, President, Air Transat. “The Flights in Search of Santa is at the core of our partnership with The Children’s Wish Foundation and is the Air Transat family’s favourite event of the year.”More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portalThe memorable day began at the Air Transat check-in counter at Toronto-Pearson airport, where some 250 passengers, including children living with severe illnesses, along with members of their families, received their boarding passes for the North Pole. They then made their way to the boarding lounge, where a number of festive activities awaited. Finally, they took their seats in the aircraft for a 90-minute flight during which Santa Claus made a surprise appearance and distributed presents.“Children’s Wish Foundation is very fortunate to be able to count on the support of Air Transat, a partner since 2004,” said Chris Kotsopoulos, CEO of The Children’s Wish Foundation. “This event is truly one of the greatest moments of the year for Children’s Wish and for the participating children. We are delighted that Air Transat is here to help us make this unique day possible for these kids, for whom illness is a daily reality.”The annual Flights in Search of Santa come together with the collaboration of several partners including Montréal-Trudeau, Toronto Pearson, Vancouver International airports and Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport, and the volunteer efforts of Air Transat employees.
