*It’s time to redraw the world’s very unequal knowledge map* July 8, 2015 12.22am EDT Author 1. Laura Czerniewicz Associate Professor, Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching, University of Cape Town 2. If the world were mapped according to how many scientific research papers each country produced, it would take on a rather bizarre, uneven appearance. The Northern hemisphere would balloon beyond recognition. The global south, including Africa, would effectively melt off the map. This image is based on data from 2001 - but, as this interactive map which ... mais »

[image: Mitochondrial DNA Synthesis] Endoplasmic Reticulum Key To Mitochondrial DNA Synthesis Florian Rosado July 16, 2016 Aging, neurodegenerative disorders and metabolic disease are all linked to mitochondria, structures within our cells that generate chemical energy and maintain their own DNA. In a discovery with far-reaching implications, scientists at the University of California, Davis, have now shown how cells control DNA synthesis in mitochondria and couple it to mitochondrial division. Mitochondria retain their own DNA from the very distant past, when they were a type of b... mais »

As maps go, they have their shortcomings. But when it comes to communicating magnitude, I think they are much more effective than maps that do so with color alone.
