Intestinal microbiota and human health
The central objective of the MetaHit project is to establish associations between the genes of the human intestinal microbiota and human health and disease.

UMass Amherst Helps to Save Ancient Wheats from Extinction
Several varieties of heritage wheat being grown at the University of Massachusetts Amherst experimental farm in Deerfield will help to prevent extinction for some of the most delicious and nutritious foods we've inherited from the ancient world, and re-introduce them to local bakers and markets eager to try something "new." These varieties, selected over centuries for flavor and high food value rather than yield, are often more disease-resistant than commercial wheats available today. Despite so

AlgTop19: An algebraic ZIP proof
We give a description of a variant to the proof of the Classification theorem for two dimensional combinatorial surfaces, due to John Conway and called the ZIP proof. Our approach to this is somewhat algebraic. We think about spheres with holes that are then zipped together rather than polygonal pieces which are glued together. This is the 19th lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc. Prof. N J Wildberger at UNSW.
