Walking fish reveal how our ancestors evolved onto land (9/1/2014)

Walking fish reveal how our ancestors evolved onto landAbout 400 million years ago a group of fish began exploring land and evolved into tetrapods -- today's amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. But just how these ancient fish used their fishy bodies and fins in a terrestrial environment and what evolutionary processes were at play remain scientific mysteries. ...> Full Article


And then there were 10 -- unexpected diversity in New Zealand kanuka genus Kunzea (8/30/2014)

And then there were 10 -- unexpected diversity in New Zealand kanuka genus KunzeaA New Zealand botanist has completed a 15-year study of the cryptic diversity in what was thought to be a single tree species from the myrtle family, Kunzea ericoides. Previously regarded as either New Zealand endemic or Australasian species, the study has revealed that not only it is endemic to New Zealand, but that further nine species (seven new to science) can be segregated from it. The study was published in the open-access journal PhytoKeys. ...> Full Article


Evolutionary history of honeybees revealed by genomics (8/29/2014)

Evolutionary history of honeybees revealed by genomicsIn a study published in Nature Genetics, researchers from Uppsala University present the first global analysis of genome variation in honeybees. The findings show a surprisingly high level of genetic diversity in honeybees, and indicate that the species most probably originates from Asia, and not from Africa as previously thought. ...> Full Article


Canola genome sequence reveals evolutionary 'love triangle' (8/28/2014)

An international team of scientists including researchers from the University of Georgia recently published the genome of Brassica napus -- commonly known as canola -- in the journal Science. Their discovery paves the way for improved versions of the plant, which is used widely in farming and industry. ...> Full Article


500 million year reset for the immune system (8/21/2014)

500 million year reset for the immune systemA single factor can reset the immune system of mice to a state likely similar to what it was 500 million years ago, when the first vertebrates emerged. ...> Full Article


8,000-year-old mutation key to human life at high altitudes (8/20/2014)

8,000-year-old mutation key to human life at high altitudesTibetans thrive in the thin air of the Tibetan Plateau, an environment in which others struggle to survive in. A study led by University of Utah scientists is the first to find a genetic cause for the adaptation -- a single DNA base pair change that dates back 8,000 years -- and demonstrate how it contributes to the Tibetans' ability to live in low oxygen conditions. The study appears online in the journal Nature Genetics on Aug. 17. ...> Full Article


Our ancestor's 'leaky' membrane answers big questions in biology (8/14/2014)

Our ancestor's 'leaky' membrane answers big questions in biologyAll life on Earth came from one common ancestor -- a single-celled organism -- but what it looked like, how it lived and how it evolved into today's modern cells is a four-billion-year-old mystery being solved by researchers at UCL using mathematical modelling. ...> Full Article

Study traces evolutionary origins of migration in New World birds (8/8/2014)

A team of scientists from the University of Chicago have developed a new method to reveal the ancestral ranges of New World birds, and discovered that bird migration in the Americas evolved in species that resided in North America. Their work also offers evidence that many tropical bird species descended from migratory ancestors that lost migration. The study was published Aug. 4 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ...> Full Article


Study advances 'DNA revolution,' tells butterflies' evolutionary history (8/7/2014)

Study advances 'DNA revolution,' tells butterflies' evolutionary historyBy tracing nearly 3,000 genes to the earliest common ancestor of butterflies and moths, University of Florida scientists have created an extensive 'Tree of Lepidoptera' in the first study to use large-scale, next-generation DNA sequencing. ...> Full Article


Analysis of the iceman mummy suggests genetic predisposition to atherosclerosis (8/6/2014)

While prevalence and types of risk factors for atherosclerosis have varied over time from ancient times to modern society -- such as levels of obesity, physical activity -- genetic predisposition/risk for the condition today appears to be very similar to that in ancient times. This forms the subject of a paper in this month's edition of Global Heart. ...> Full Article

Marmoset sequence sheds new light on primate biology and evolution (7/26/2014)

Marmoset sequence sheds new light on primate biology and evolutionAn international team of scientists led by the Baylor College of Medicine and Washington University St. Louis, including a researcher from the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna have completed the genome sequence of the common marmoset -- the first sequence of a New World Monkey -- providing new information about the marmoset's unique rapid reproductive system, physiology and growth shedding new light on primate biology and evolution. The team published the work in the journal Nature Genetics. ...> Full Article
