Greater Rates of Mitochondrial Mutations Discovered in Children Born to Older Mothers
Statististicians participate in a large study of mutations in mitochondrial DNA. A multidisciplinary Penn State and UC Berkley team including researchers in genomics, bioinformatics, medical sciences, forensic sciences and statistics produced and analyzed breakthrough data on mutations that accrue as human mitochondria are passed from mothers to children. These mutations are involved in a large number of diseases. The findings that mitochondrial DNA molecules undergo a small bottleneck, and that mutations are more common in children of older mothers, are therefore critical for genetic counseling.

Jogesh Babu invited guest on SynTalk episode
SynTalk (short for Synthesis Talk) is a freewheeling interdisciplinary talk show with a philosophical approach to understanding the world from a long-term perspective. SynTalk believes that all understanding lies on nodes, and it, therefore, brings together concepts, ideas, and impulses from different epistemological categories under one topic in one episode. The goal is to contribute and promote original interdisciplinary collaboration & research inside, outside, and across academic institutions, companies, think tanks, independent intellectuals, students, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, connoisseurs, and common folk. In the long run, SynTalk aspires to become a global platform for fence-less thinking.
