House Mice

According to new research, house mice (Mus musculus) are ideal biomarkers of human settlement, as they tend to stow away in crates or on ships that end up going where people go. Using mice as a proxy for human movement can add to what is already known through archaeological data and answer important questions in areas where there is a lack of artefacts, Searle said.

Where people go, so do mice, often stowing away in carts of hay or on ships. Despite a natural range of just 100 meters (109 yards) and an evolutionary base near Pakistan, the house mouse has managed to colonize every continent, which makes it a useful tool for researchers like Searle.

Previous research conducted by Searle at the University of York supported the theory that Australian mice originated in the British Isles and probably came over with convicts shipped there to colonize the continent in the late 18th and 19th centuries.

In the Viking study, he and his fellow researchers in Iceland, Denmark and Sweden took it a step further, using ancient mouse DNA collected from archaeological sites dating from the 10th to 12th centuries, as well as modern mice.

He is hoping to do just that in his next project, which involves tracking the migration of mice and other species, including plants, across the Indian Ocean, from South Asia to East Africa.

Due to their nature of stowing away around humans, house mice are used by researchers as additional information sources to known archaeological data, to study human settlement and movement.

Our galaxy could have 100 billion brown dwarfs or more, according to work by an international team of astronomers, led by Koraljka Music from the University of Lisbon and Aleks Scholz from the University of St Andrews.

Brown dwarfs are objects intermediate in mass between stars and planets, with masses too low to sustain stable hydrogen fusion in their core, the hallmark of stars like the Sun. After the initial discovery of brown dwarfs in 1995, scientists quickly realized that they are a natural by-product of processes that primarily lead to the formation of stars and planets.

All of the thousands of brown dwarfs found so far are relatively close to the Sun, the overwhelming majority within 1500 light years, simply because these objects are faint and therefore difficult to observe. Most of those detected are located in nearby star-forming regions, which are all fairly small and have a low density of stars.

  • Hello Author,

    Please review.

    House mice is a useful tool for researchers by using it as a proxy for human, so it has a chance to colonize its family in every continent like human.

    Astronomers discovered thousands of brown dwarfs which are intermediate objects between stars and planets, and all these were found relatively close to the Sun.

    Thanks

  • According to the Astronomers Galaxy has a 100 billion brown dwarfs, its natural process between Stars and Planets for low hydrogen fusion in the core, its found near the Sun and its difficult to absorb

    • – Astronomers,
      It appears that you are missing a comma after the introductory phrase ‘According to the Astronomers’. Consider adding a comma.

  • As evident from multiple research, mice have colonized in every continent and are considered to be proxy of human movement, for example Australian mice are considered to have originated from the British Isles; further in addition to the mice movement, researchers are also planning to track the movement of plants and other species to understand human movement.

    Author please review….

  • House mice, originated in Pakistan, has managed to spread all over the world with people, and new research is expected to reveal the exact migration of mice and other species by analyzing the DNA of ancient and modern mice.

    Brown dwarfs are objects, which are located near the Sun and star-forming regions with a low density of stars, are difficult to observe, however, scientists contend that these objects are partly responsible for the formation of stars and planets.

    Hi Author, what do you think?

  • As per new research conducted, it has been found out that house mice end up going where people go, and this research has been taken a step further whereby researchers have extract mouse DNA from ancient archaeological sites to trace the migration of mice into countries such as Australia.

    • The word ‘research’ appears repeatedly in this text. Consider using a synonym in its place. (you can replace ‘research’ with ‘study’)

  • Our galaxy consists of more than 100 billion dwarfs, are faint and small objects, intermediate in mass between stars and planets, and formed as by-product of stars and planets formation processes, often difficult to observe due to closeness to the sun.

      • As per international team of astronomers, the count of brown dwarfs in our galaxy could be more than 100 billion, basically faint and small objects, intermediate in mass between stars and planets, are considered to be formed as byproduct of stars and planets formations and are mostly detected in star-forming regions.

  • Our Galaxy could have more than 100 billion dwarfs, which is an intermediate mass between stars and planets, with lower mass to sustain stable hydrogen fusion in their core, although most of the dwarfs located in the nearby star forming region still these objects mostly found near to the Sun as these objects are faint and difficult to observe.

    Author please review:

  • Dear Team, Please comment

    According to a team of international astronomers, the total count of brown dwarfs in our galaxy could be over 100 billion and are considered to be formed as a natural by product of the process of formation of stars and planets and hence are mostly found in star formation areas.

  • Dear Team, Please comment on below

    House mice can be considered as ideal bio markers of human settlement, which when studied, can add to the what is already known through archeological data and answer important questions in areas where there are no artefacts, according to research conducted by Searle

    • Content covers every important detail, usage of grammar is good.

      Just a suggestion – change first line, it is same as used in the paragraph

  • Brown dwarf are natural by-product due to formation of stars and planets and they are discovered in 1995, huge amount of brown dwarf are found near to the sun and these objects are blurry and difficult to see.

    plz author review this summary.

  • Brown dwarfs are the objects having mass less than a planet and more than a star and are difficult to observe due to their faint nature, those that are spotted so far, is only due to their closeness with Sun.

  • Brown dwarfs, which are now probably more than 100 billion in count according to astronomers, was initially discovered in 1995 and they are the by product of the stars and planets making process and that is why they are mostly detected such regions.

  • According to international team of astronomers, our galaxy consists of more than 100 billion dwarfs which are basically faint and small objects intermediate in mass between stars and planets and are also realized as the by product of of stars and planets making process.

  • According to a research by Searle, presence of colonial establishment can be tracked using mouse movements because mouse are generally stowed away during human and goods transportation and to further this, few researchers compared the DNA of the ancient mouse and modern mice, however now plants and other species are also being used for the similar researches.

  • House mice are biological makers of humans and solve many significant situations where there is a lack of artifacts and colonize to every continent where people go and it so useful for researchers to find migration of mice and species.

  • According to Searle house mice are very useful tool in archaeology to trace human settlement in case of lack of artifacts, as house mice always manage to follow humans wherever they go.

  • Our galaxy could have 100 billion or more brown dwarfs which are irresistibly near the sun formed as a by-product during formation of stars and planets, they are small and faint therefore difficult to observe.

  • There are more than 100 billion brown dwarfs which are objects intermediate in mass between stars and planets with low hydrogen fusion in the core, and far from the Sun, therefore, these dwarfs are faint and difficult to observe.

  • House mice can be seen everywhere in the continent as they move from one continent to other with people and mice originated in one place is found settled in another location like humens, viking planning to research on migration of mouse and other species.
