Researchers have found correlations between Neandertal-derived genes and disease states in modern humans.

As summer approaches, the AAAS Skin Deep Project has released its latest set of educational tools promoting skin health awareness. The tools include standards-based science lessons plans for middle and high school students and an interactive, online skin cancer investigation activity.

The new tools are funded by Neutrogena and were released this month, which is skin cancer awareness month. The scientific content of the online teaching tools is based on the online AAAS book, The Science Inside: Skin, released last year.
