Researchers working at the California Institute of Technology have found a way to create transparent mice, a technique which could help others to perform experiments like mapping out details of the nervous system, or the spread of cancer in lab animals.
A survey of 10,000 developers by Developer Economics shows that two percent of app developers take in over $100,000 per month.
The data also shows nine percent of developers getting $10,000-$100,000 per month, and 88% of developers on under $10,000 per month.
