Nikolai Vavilov, botanist/ plant breeder (25 November 1887 - 1943)

Nikolai Vavilov, botanist/ plant breeder (25 November 1887 - 1943) | NetBiology | Scoop.it

25 November is the anniversary of the birth of botanist / plant breeder Nikolai Vavilov (1887 - 1943). "His vision was of a plant science that united the work of physiologists, cytologists, geneticists, systematists and biochemists; that was international and co-operative in character."
If you have a subscription to Nature you can read this incredibly moving obituary that describes his scientific accomplishments and tragic, premature death.

HIV Could Be Evolving Into A Less Deadly Form | IFLScience | NetBiology | Scoop.it
The pressure to adapt to our immune systems is gradually forcing HIV to become less aggressive in parts of Africa, a new study has found. This, combined with the use of antiviral drugs, could be slowly causing HIV to transition from a deadly virus to a milder form, meaning that infected individuals may be less likely to progress to AIDS in the future.
