Increased genetic contribution to wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic

Warmerdam et al. study a BioBank population over 10 months of the pandemic and observe that genetics affected many aspects of wellbeing, but also that its impact on several phenotypes changed over time. Particularly, they find the genetic predisposition to life satisfaction had an increasing influence on perceived quality of life.

Dnmt1a is essential for gene body methylation and the regulation of the zygotic genome in a wasp

Arsala et al. study wasp wasp Nasonia vitripennis and propose that lower expression levels of methylated genes due to reduced gene body methylation is the direct effect of Nv-Dnmt1 knockdown. The disruption of methylated genes then leads to downstream dysregulation of the maternal-zygotic transition, culminating in developmental failure at gastrulation.
