In 2017, researchers reported in the journal Cell that octopuses, squids, and cuttlefish don’t follow their DNA’s commands like the rest of us mortals. Instead, they do what’s known as RNA editing. Here’s how it works: usually, RNA acts as a sort of messenger and copyist for DNA, which provides it with genetic information that goes to create particular proteins in cells. But in these animals, that information can get changed in translation. Enzymes can swap out certain nucleotides in the RNA’s code—you may know them as the letters A, U, G, and C—for others, thereby creating proteins that were never encoded in the DNA. As The New York Times puts it, this can allow an organism to “add new riffs to its base genetic blueprint.” To learn more, click the link in our bio! #octopus #squid #octopuses #squids #genes #animals #creatures #brains #octopi #invertebrates #marineife #curiosity

Lorraine, a singer in the choir, is exhausted and happy after back-to-back performances at a hospital in Compton, California, and a nursing home in Pasadena, California.

I’m Kat Bawden @bawdenka a documentary photographer in Los Angeles, California. This week I’m sharing images from Skid Row in Los Angeles, where I’ve been documenting a choir of people who are or have experienced homelessness. The project follows the choir as they study college-level music theory, write original compositions, and perform in Skid Row and across Los Angeles.

Conflict and the worst drought in decades has left nearly 20 million children and families across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda in urgent need of food and water. It is very rare that so many countries are affected by drought and conflict this severe at the same time. We’re helping to provide food, clean drinking water, lifesaving medical care and so much more to children and families affected by the hunger crisis. Learn more at the link in our bio.
