E. so perhaps many sick and stillborn calves were used for parchment says zooarchaeologist Annelise Binois-Roman of the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne The York Gospels also offer a rare record of the people of the book: Almost 20% of the DNA Teasdale extracted from its eraser shavings came from humans or microbes shed by humans he announced at the symposium This is the only surviving Gospel book to contain the oaths taken by UK clergymen between the 14th and 16th centuries and it’s still used in ceremonies today Pages containing oaths were read kissed and handled the most and these pages were particularly rich in microbial DNA from humans Teasdale reported For example researchers identified DNA from bacteria known to live in human skin and noses including an abundance of two genera—Propionibacterium which causes acne and Staphylococcus which includes strains that cause staph Thus the "crud" that mars the surface of many books and documents is a well-preserved bioarchive of bacteria that infected people who handled the books Stallybrass says Of course how much of that DNA is contamination by recent handlers of a manuscript is tough to tell Researchers are seeking creative solutions to find out Many medieval manuscripts contain pages with darkened or discolored areas and smudged fingerprints signs of being regularly touched or kissed long ago If Teasdale could sample such smudges in devotional prayer books used heavily by one person he predicts that "the main user’s original DNA could be retrievable" For example an image of Christ on the cross in the Missal of the Haarlem Linen Weavers Guild (circa 1400 CE) was apparently kissed repeatedly by a Dutch priest who may have left secretions from his lips and nose on the feet of Christ and on the cross Eraser shaving DNA might reveal that priest’s hair and eye color ailments and ancestry By sampling roughly dated parchment documents researchers could also trace changes in the ethnic identity of people who made and used books over time and perhaps identify some of their diseases Bradley is seeking samples from books that have identifiable contrasts between early and later users such as books that have been moved from one continent to another Bodleian Libraries staff turn pages for scholars eager to examine manuscripts with a new scientific perspective John Cairns With funding from the European Union and book owners Collins is now traveling the world from the J Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles California to the Royal Library in Copenhagen gathering eraser debris from all manner of illustrious books Other scholars are sending samples and entering the field as well: Researchers studying the Dead Sea Scrolls in Israel are reportedly getting ancient DNA from those parchments And Stinson has tried to extract DNA from a medieval poem "We want to build a parchment DNA library" he says Collins is seeking advice on what to do with any DNA his team finds and sequences What hypotheses should they address "We’re fishing for proteins and DNA and catching a lot of stuff" Collins says "But we scientists come up with questions humanities scholars think are dumb" such as the cause of a death already described in mortuary records And scientists and humanities scholars have different approaches: Given the concerns about DNA contamination scientists prefer to touch books only with gloves But among humanities scholars the tradition is to use bare hands to ensure that people handle the pages gently; those wearing gloves are thought be rougher Some scholars at the Bodleian meeting had lofty ideas—would it be possible to get DNA of famous people such as Isaac Newton who left behind many diaries and documents Others were more interested in the bookworms Hedges announced that the wormholes he measured in the Gospel of Luke were 13 millimeters in diameter suggesting that they were made by Anobium punctatum a northern European beetle That would confirm that the book was made in the United Kingdom or northern Europe rather than in southern Europe The DNA of bookworms "can provide clues as to when and where objects such as books originated and were transported" Hedges says Some medievalists are enthused about the idea that biologists might be able to aid their studies filling in the blanks left by written records "I look at handwriting and dialect analysis to figure out a manuscript’s age—ridiculous" laments Stinson given the Herculean effort required to do so Now he says "I could go ask a biologist"By: PTI | Los Angeles | Published: December 4 2016 9:09 pm Researchers believe that clues to the continued dominance of men in the science technology engineering and mathematics fields – and the reason nurturing often comes more easily to women – can be found in the children’s toy department (AP) Top News Encouraging children to enjoy a wide variety of toys allows them to develop fully according to a new study which found that limiting this choice on the basis of their gender can fuel stereotypes Researchers believe that clues to the continued dominance of men in the science technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields – and the reason nurturing often comes more easily to women – can be found in the children’s toy department “When we wall off the toys that develop spatial skills or are devoted to science and say ‘These are only for boys’ and we wall off the toys that develop empathy and verbal skills and say ‘These are only for girls’ it severely limits how children develop” said Elizabeth Sweet from California State University in the US “If kids are not exposed to the kinds of toys and play that help them develop those skills they may not be as good at them over time” said Sweet “However even more insidious is that it reinforces the stereotype that boys are good at science and math and girls are not It pushes women and girls out of that field because they think it is not for them” she said Some toy manufacturers have proposed making STEM toys pink to appeal to girls “I think that is the wrong approach I think that plays up the stereotype that girls are so different that they need aspecial kind of STEM toys” Sweet said “Everybody was committed to the idea that something needs to change recognising there is a real problem here” she said “There are a lot of gender and racial stereotypes at the core of children’s toys in the media today and that affects children on a couple of different levels” she added “Research shows that different kinds of toys help children to develop different kinds of skills For instance building blocks are great for building spatial skills” said Sweet “Playing with dolls is really good for developing language skills and nurturing abilities All of those skills are essential for a fully functioning human” she said “Do not go first to the idea that this is a girl so she must want a princess doll” said Sweet “Play helps children to develop necessary skills and to learn and grow in their world so the toys that allow for the most open-ended and creative play are those that research has found are best And I do not recommend that parents limit the possibilities” she said For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: IANS | Washington | Updated: May 10 2017 12:53 pm The spacecraft scheduled for launch

can cause subtle distortions in the apparent shapes of galaxies That is because its gravity bends light that travels from a distant galaxy toward an observer which changes the appearance of the galaxy
