The nanolithia particles would normally be very unstable, so the researchers embedded them within the cobalt oxide matrix, a sponge-like material with pores just a few nanometers across. The matrix stabilizes the particles and also acts as a catalyst for their transformations.

Scientists have uncovered an interesting role for “mobile genes” — genetic material that moves between organisms by a process called horizontal gene transfer — in shaping culturally distinct microbiomes in developing world populations.

This implied 'mobile gene' transfer is physical and not contextual epigenetic or genetic adaptation over time !! Time period for manifestation in human population through generational heriditary?? More information needed to answer arising questions on HMP.

Biologists have long suspected that ants base their population-density estimates on the frequency with which they — literally — bump into other ants while randomly exploring their environments.

Introduction
MIT is a world-class educational institution where teaching and research — with relevance to the practical world as a guiding principle — continue to be its primary purpose.

MIT is independent, coeducational, and privately endowed. Its five schools and one college encompass numerous academic departments, divisions and degree-granting programs, as well as interdisciplinary centers, laboratories and programs whose work cuts across traditional departmental boundaries.
