A carnivorous plant’s prized genetic treasures, unveiled [Phys]

A new genomic analysis shows just how valuable this carnivorous lifestyle has been to the plant throughout its evolutionary history.Over millions of years, the species, Utricularia gibba, repeatedly retained and enhanced genetic material associated with its carnivorous nature—despite tremendous evolutionary pressure to delete DNA, the research finds.

Unfolding the folding mechanism of ladybug wings [Phys]

Japanese scientists have figured out how ladybugs fold their wings by transplanting a transparent artificial wing onto the insect and observing its underlying folding mechanism. The study’s findings, which help explain how the wings can maintain their strength and rigidity during flight, while becoming elastic for compact folding and storage on the ground, provide hints for the innovative design of a wide range of deployable structures, from satellite antennas to microscopic medical instruments to articles for daily use like umbrellas and fans.
