Sleeping with partners can bring all sort of issues for a marriage, especially when one partner is a snorer. But scientists are more about the health of relationships by looking at how couple sleep together. The amount of time that couple sleep in sync is an indicator of the wife’s satisfaction with the relationship.
After eight years of work, researchers have completed the first sequencing of the entire sheep genome.
Scientists from CSIRO led an international research team to complete the sequencing, which could lead to more effective breeding strategies and new approaches to the management of sheep in Australia and around the world.
With about 70m head of sheep in Australia and 1bn globally, the sequencing of the genome could have a massive impact for the rural economy given that sheep are a major source of meat, milk and wool products.
