Republican to become lieutenant governorHowever there is a debate about whether Fischbach can remain a senator while serving as the No 2 person in the executive branch While the state Constitution forbids someone serving in legislative and executive branches at the same time Republican senators point to an 1898 Minnesota Supreme Court ruling allowing that to happen temporarilyFishbach’s executive branch service will end in early 2019 when a new governor-lieutenant governor team takes officeSenate Minority Leader Tom Bakk D-Cook says he will file suit if Fischbach is president when the Legislature returns to work on Feb 20If the courts order Fischbach to resign and Democrats win a Feb 12 election to fill a Senate vacancy each party would have 33 senators That tie would be broken by a special election to replace FischbachA Senate Republican spokesman said that Fischbach as lieutenant governor "isn’t going to do anything just remain a senator" Her only constitutional duty is to become governor if Dayton cannot continue in officeIf Fischbach is forced out of the Senate Republicans are looking into her resigning as lieutenant governor and replacing her with a Democrat as Senate president perhaps someone in a district the GOP could win in a special electionUS Supreme Court UpstateNYer/Wikimedia Commons The question has been debated for years but not addressed directly by the US Supreme Court—until this week It came up for consideration on 15 April thanks to a coalition of clinicians researchers and legal activists who have waged a 4-year legal campaign to invalidate one company’s patents on the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 used in diagnostic tests to estimate cancer risk The challengers argue that human genes are "products of nature"—not inventions—and so cannot be patented The defendant Myriad Genetics of Salt Lake City argues that its patents are valid because they describe genes not as they occur in nature but as they exist after they have been "isolated" from tissue The oral argument in the case—Association for Molecular Pathology v Myriad Genetics Inc—took the court deep into the territory of molecular biologists For more than an hour the justices quizzed the competing sides about exons introns and cDNAs proposing several different metaphors in an effort to squeeze the complex biology into a manageable legal mold At the end it was clear that many of the justices did not seem to like the idea of patenting human genes But they struggled to find a way to distinguish between what might be called artificial genes (patentable) and "natural" genes (not patentable) The decision expected later this year and from which there is no appeal could have an impact on hundreds of companies and thousands of researchers The first justices to attack the question with a metaphor were Samuel Alito and Ruth Bader Ginsburg They compared Myriad’s patented genes to a molecule taken from an imaginary tree deep in the Amazon Alito proposed that the leaves of this tree contained a molecule with "tremendous medicinal purposes … Let’s say it treats breast cancer" Questioning the lead attorney for the challengers Christopher Hansen of the American Civil Liberties Union Alito wanted to know whether a drug made from these leaves would be considered a product of nature and for that reason unpatentable Hansen replied: "If we simply pick the leaf off the tree and swallow it … I think it is not patentable" Hansen suggested however that an inventor might instead get patents on a process for extracting a molecule from the leaves and giving it a new function as medicine Alito said that he considered Hansen’s response to be an important concession because "Isolated DNA has a very different function from the DNA as it exists in nature And although the chemical composition may not be different … it certainly is in a different form" Hansen said that he disagreed with this interpretation Justice Elena Kagan challenged Hansen to explain what economic incentive would be left if human gene patents were ruled out for any company to do "what Myriad did" — develop a genetic test for cancer risk This "takes a lot of work and takes a lot of investment" Kagan said "Why shouldn’t we worry that Myriad or companies like it will just say well you know we’re not going to do this work anymore" Hansen responded: "We know that would not have happened in this case … There were other labs doing BRCA testing and Myriad shut all that testing down" He added that the "whole point" of the argument is that "when you lock up a product of nature it prevents industry from innovating and making new discoveries" Justice Antonin Scalia then pounced charging that Hansen had not answer the question about incentives: "Why would a company incur massive investment if it cannot patent" Hansen said: "I think scientists look for things for a whole variety of reasons sometimes because they’re curious about the world" Kagan said that she had "hoped" for a different answer—such as that there were other patents that could make the investment worthwhile Justice Anthony Kennedy noted that he too had expected to hear that other kinds of patents—on an industrial process for example—would provide the incentive Kennedy said: "I just don’t think we can decide the case on the ground oh don’t worry about investment it’ll come" Hansen agreed with several justices who suggested that it’s not the isolation of the gene but the use of the gene that’s inventive and suitable for patenting "That’s the whole point isn’t it" asked Justice Sonia Sotomayor Hansen replied: "That’s exactly correct" The justices then focused on the question of whether isolated DNA—from which sequences that don’t code for proteins (introns) are removed—is a human invention or a product of nature Myriad claims that the isolated DNA of BRCA1 and BRCA2 are its own inventions (An isolated DNA may also be contained in a "complementary DNA" or cDNA with an identical sequence a useful format for laboratory work) Kennedy said that when he first looked at the case "I thought that maybe the cDNA was kind of an economy-class gene" but then realized that it wasn’t; he seemed confused Sotomayor suggested that the whole gene without the introns "is just not found in nature" Hansen argued that while cDNAs are a modified form of DNA the process used by Myriad to create them involves "letting nature manipulate" the sequence "not the scientist manipulating" it Scalia confessed "You’ve really lost me when you say that it’s nature that does the alteration rather than the scientist" Midway through the proceedings the spokesperson for the Obama administration Solicitor General Donald Verrilli rose to present the government’s view He said that isolated DNA should not be patentable "because it is simply native DNA extracted from the body" In contrast he added cDNA should be patentable: "cDNA is an artificial creation in the laboratory that doesn’t correspond to anything in your body" Verrilli argued The problem in his view appears to be in the wording of Myriad’s patent claim Soon the court sought aid in another metaphor—baking cookies When Myriad’s attorney Gregory Castanias rose to speak Sotomayor said "I can bake a chocolate chip cookie using natural ingredients … and if I combust those in some new way I can get a patent on that But I can’t imagine getting a patent simply on the basic items of salt flour and eggs simply because I’ve created a new use or product from those ingredients" Castanias argued that the combination of materials in the Myriad invention was original But he ran into a series of objections from Sotomayor based on the cookie recipe Stymied he said: "That’s the problem with using the really simplistic analogies with all due respect" Castanias seemingly in retreat then decided to resort to a simple metaphor himself "A baseball bat doesn’t exist until it’s isolated from a tree" he said "But that’s still a product of human invention to decide where to begin the bat and where to end the bat" Justice Stephen Breyer challenged him noting that briefs filed by scientists described how BRCA genes are isolated by a natural process in the body that clips away introns unlike the making of a baseball bat He demanded to know whether this view of the science was correct Castanias disagreed Chief Justice John Roberts also weighed in on the baseball bat saying that it is "quite different" from an isolated gene As Roberts read the scientific briefs he said "you don’t have to invent the particular segment" of DNA that Myriad patented "You just have to cut it off" Castanias disagreed describing some of the research that went into creating a cDNA version of the BRCA genes in the lab Roberts remained skeptical: "I still don’t understand … in what sense it’s different than just snipping along the line" Before adjourning the justices explored the possibility of a compromise decision Sotomayor for example asked Hansen: "Is there some value to us striking down isolated DNA and upholding the cDNA" Hansen said that although this was not exactly what his side was seeking it would help He argued that it would prevent companies like Myriad from getting patents that can be used to block research by others "on a part of the human body" The court will deliberate on all this and is expected to render a decision by 30 June Mans best friend is also mans oldest friend Dogs were the first animals to be domesticated with evidence suggesting they were tamed about 15000 years ago But the history behind how the four-legged creatures went from wild wolves to pampered pets remains hazy scientists say "Its a puzzle" said Dr Greger Larson a professor of evolutionary genomics in the archaeology department at the University of Oxford in England "Rather than thinking about it as an event or a single overnight incidence its a long-term multigenerational change" Larson 42 is part of an international team of scientists working to nail down when where and how many times dogs were domesticatedall questions that experts agree that well they just cant agree on yet "Theres a heck of a lot of speculation The field really lacks a consensus" Larson said in a recent interview with TIME "Theres still a heck more that we dont know You need a lot of information from a long time ago and its tough to really get that" The latest theory is that the domestication of ancient wolves may have taken place in both Asia and Europe with about 1000 to 2000 years between the two instances according to the teams research which was published in the journal Science in June Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter The research involved scientists poring over canine fossils and modern DNA samples It found a deep split between modern East Asian dogs and those from the Middle East and Europe The divide may have taken place between 6400 and 14000 years ago The hypothesis is significant according to Larson because the dual domesticationsomething unlikely to have happened randomlysuggests that external factors may have forced wild and often aggressive wolves to forge a working relationship with humans for survival "Were so far in the beginning of this" Larson said "If it happened just once youre kind of thinking its a lucky happenstance in space and time If it happens twice independently on two different sides of the old world then you’re looking at an environmental driver" Among some possible scenarios: Wolves may have been trying to take advantage of resources humans had at the time or humans may have just been introduced to the animals in an area in which they didn’t previously live Scientists agree that wolves began associating more closely with people about 15000 years ago Around that time people were burying dogs which could be taken as a possible sign of affection Sometimes canines were buried alongside humans evidence shows Dogs were considered an important member of the human family helping people hunt about 8000 years ago Ultimately that relationship led to the idea of dogs as petstamed animals kept for companionship inside the homewhich can be seen as early as 2000 years ago during the Roman years Larson said Now nearly 78 million dogs are considered pets in the US.
