Michael Deem, a physicist and bioengineer from Rice University, was first drawn to CRISPR in 2010 and has created a number of computer models to explore CRISPR's inner workings. In a new study in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface , Deem and former graduate student Pu Han found there is a subtle interplay between phages and bacteria that can change, depending upon how often the two encounter one another and how quickly each evolves defenses against the other. The study documents a strange survival-extinction pattern between bacteria and phages that helps explain seemingly conflicting experimental results that have stymied CRISPR researchers. Evolving together There's a co-evolution between the phages and the bacteria, Deem says. The bacteria are incorporating DNA from the phages, and this allows the bacteria or their offspring to be protected against those phages.

The local standup comedy scene has been growing steadily over the past few years. One of the more interesting events on its calendar has been the Laugh Die You series by Popcorn Studios, which features standup routines, skits, and musical performances. The most recent installation, Laugh Die YouThe Mob, took place on Feb 11 at the Genting International Showroom, Resorts World Genting. The show promised a hilarious look at the love-hate relationship between Malaysians and Singaporeans. Representing Malaysia was f­unnyman Kuah Jen Han, and flying the flag for Singapore were actor-comedian Mark Lee and New Zealand-born comic Jonathan Atherton. Before the show, it was difficult to determine who would come out on top in the comedy battle. While Kuah arguably would have the ­homeground advantage, Lee has a strong local fanbase due to his roles in some of Singapore’s biggest comedy films, while Atherton has been a longtime veteran of the regional comedy scene.

He said their remand was extended for seven days while Siti Aishah’s boyfriend was released today on police bail. He also denied that Jong-Nam's son, Kim Han Sol had arrived in Malaysia and said they were all merely just “rumours”. He said no family members have come forward to identify or provide DNA samples for them to positively identify the victim as Kim Jong-Nam. He said police will refer to the victim as Kim Chol, until they can positively identify him. Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was killed on Feb 13 by two women who splashed chemicals on his face at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) departure hall. He was about to leave for Macau

After the Alexander family were killed in a plane crash, the house was leased by Elvis, hence its name. The design consists of four circles on three different levels with lots of glass and stonework. Photo by Yield With a triangular A-frame front, similar to that of a Swiss ski chalet, the Swiss Miss houses were designed by Charles Dubois in a section with about 15 other homes just like it. The unusual front spans two-stories tall giving the home some dramatic curb appeal. Photo by Chimay Bleue via Flickr Model A2 Residence is a home by Palmer & Krisel (Dan Palmer and William Krisel) that was designed in 1957 as part of the Twin Palms Estates Development. To ensure all the homes didn't look alike in the subdivision, they designed alternate rooflines to change it up. Back in the day, these homes only cost around $30,000 brand new! Photo by Gregory Han On the last Palm Springs hillside development, the Chino Canyon Project is a new home that was designed by mid-century architect Al Beadle .

PETALING JAYA: Kim Han-Sol, the eldest son of the presumably deceased Kim-Jong-Nam is yet to arrive Malaysia to identify if the body of a North Korean man who was killed on Feb 13 is that of his father. Checks by theSun with the relevant authorities at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) showed no records of Han-Sol's arrival on Monday. Even the police are in the dark about claims of Han-Sol showing up here to provide blood samples for the identification of the body that lies at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) mortuary. Asked if there was any truth to the 21-year-old North Korean coming to Malaysia, Selangor police chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat said today that police neither had knowledge of it nor informed by any party of such arrival of a family member of Jong-Nam. "We received many enquiries about it but we are unaware of such arrangements.
