The color of eyes: a study with application in forensic sciences

Education
The applications of genetics in the field of forensic sciences are well known, but that does not mean there is still much to be explored and new lines of related research continue to be opened. This is the case of the determination of the color of the eyes, a topic that historically has not aroused greater interest because it is considered that any study aimed at defining the phenotypic aspect of people - that is, their characteristics and traits - was stigmatizing. In the last decade, however, it was gaining more and more momentum, summoning a large number of experts. In this favorable context, two scientists from the Multidisciplinary Institute of Cell Biology (IMBICE, CONICET-UNLP-CICPBA) (Argentina) have just published a paper in the journal Genetics and Molecular Biology.

If you are a student, these are the savings accounts that are most convenient for you

Education

Numerical curiosities (Liz Strachan)

Numerical curiosities (Liz Strachan)

Magazine
The publication of a book of the popularization of mathematics is always a reason for celebration. There are few examples that can be found in bookstores, so any new work that goes into this field should be necessarily welcome, especially if it is written by a disseminating expert like Liz Strachan, who has the rare ability to make perfectly understandable concepts that otherwise (and hopefully) would require more than our full attention. "Numerical curiosities", the book that Alianza Editorial has just published, is in any case, by itself, a true magnet for the interest of readers. Its title says it all. If mathematics is interesting, even more so if we go into it, and never better said, innumerable numerical curiosities. The book has a particular structure. The author has written…
