This week on LSCDS #ScienceNews, rare fossils belonging to a newly identified, lion-like carnivore were found after lingering in a museum drawer for decades!

Even though the human genome was sequenced nearly two decades ago, researchers have struggled to identify the genetics underlying height. Today, scientists have discovered how rare genetic variants can explain this trait’s heritability.

Lastly, you may have heard that scientists were able to revive the brains of pigs four hours after death. What does this mean for humans post-mortem? Are we closer to understanding consciousness? Read some of the most asked questions here.
