Genetic Archaeology Research & News

Chickens and turkeys 'closer to dinosaur ancestors' than other birds (12/18/2014)

New research from the University of Kent suggests that chickens and turkeys have experienced fewer gross genomic changes than other birds as they evolved from their dinosaur ancestor. ...> Full Article


Decoding the Tree of Life (12/17/2014)

Nature abhors a vacuum, which may explain the findings of a new study showing that bird evolution exploded 65 million years ago when nearly everything else on Earth -- dinosaurs included -- died out. ...> Full Article


Rapid bird evolution after the age of dinosaurs unprecedented, study confirms (12/16/2014)

Rapid bird evolution after the age of dinosaurs unprecedented, study confirmsUniversity of Sydney's Associate Professor Simon Ho contributed his expertise on evolutionary timescales to the international scientific effort to better undertsand bird evolution. It has confirmed birds rapidly diversified after the age of the dinosaurs. ...> Full Article


Team proposes new model for snake venom evolution (12/13/2014)

Team proposes new model for snake venom evolutionAlong with colleagues from the UK and Colorado, a University of Texas Arlington team found genetic evidence that highly toxic venom proteins were evolutionarily 'born' from non-toxic genes, which have other ordinary jobs around the body, such as regulation of cellular functions or digestion of food. ...> Full Article


Parasites and the evolution of primate culture (12/12/2014)

Learning from others and innovation have undoubtedly helped advance civilization. But these behaviors can carry costs as well as benefits. And a new study by an international team of evolutionary biologists sheds light on how one particular cost -- increased exposure to parasites -- may affect cultural evolution in non-human primates. ...> Full Article


Global research to uncover one of mankind's most ancient lineages (12/11/2014)

Global research to uncover one of mankind's most ancient lineagesScientists at Nanyang Technological University and Penn State University in the United States have successfully discovered one of modern human's ancient lineages through the sequencing of genes. ...> Full Article


Arabian Sea humpback whales isolated for 70,000 years (12/6/2014)

Arabian Sea humpback whales isolated for 70,000 yearsScientists from Wildlife Conservation Society, the American Museum of Natural History, the Environment Society of Oman, and other organizations have made a fascinating discovery in the northern Indian Ocean: humpback whales inhabiting the Arabian Sea are the most genetically distinct humpback whales in the world and may be the most isolated whale population on earth. ...> Full Article


King Richard III -- case closed after 529 years (12/5/2014)

King Richard III -- case closed after 529 yearsKing Richard III: a DNA and genealogical study confirms the identity of remains found in Leicester and uncovers new truths about his appearance and Plantagenet lineage. ...> Full Article

Prehistoric conflict hastened human brain's capacity for collaboration, study says (12/3/2014)

Warfare not only hastened human technological progress and vast social and political changes, but may have greatly contributed to the evolutionary emergence of humans' high intelligence and ability to work together toward common goals, according to a new study from the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis. ...> Full Article


Centipede's genome reveals how life evolved on our planet (12/2/2014)

Centipede's genome reveals how life evolved on our planetCentipedes have been genetically sequenced for the first time by an international team of over 100 scientists. Study co-author Prof. Ariel Chipman at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem says the humble arthropod's DNA gives scientists new insight into how life developed on our planet. The creature independently evolved solutions to the problem of living on land by losing some genes and expanding other gene families not present in insects. ...> Full Article


Scientists solve reptile mysteries with landmark study on the evolution of turtles (12/1/2014)

Scientists solve reptile mysteries with landmark study on the evolution of turtlesA team of scientists, including researchers from the California Academy of Sciences, has reconstructed a detailed 'tree of life' for turtles. Next generation sequencing technologies in Academy labs have generated unprecedented amounts of genetic information for a thrilling new look at turtles' evolutionary history. Authors place turtles in the newly named group 'Archelosauria' with their closest relatives: birds, crocodiles, and dinosaurs. ...> Full Article


Evolution: The genetic connivances of digits and genitals (11/30/2014)

During the development of mammals, the growth and organization of digits are orchestrated by Hox genes, which are activated very early in precise regions of the embryo. These 'architect genes' are themselves regulated by a large piece of adjacent DNA. A study led by Denis Duboule, professor at the University of Geneva and the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, reveals that this same DNA regulatory sequence also controls the architect genes during the development of the external genitals. ...> Full Article


Deep-earth carbon offers clues on origin of life on Earth (11/29/2014)

Scientist reveal details about carbon deep beneath the Earth's surface and suggest ways it might have influenced the history of life on the planet. ...> Full Article


Darwin 2.0 (11/28/2014)

Darwin 2.0It has long been thought that dramatic changes in a landscape like the formation of the Andes Mountain range or the Amazon River is the main driver that initiates species to diverge. However, a recent study shows that speciation occurred much later than these dramatic geographical changes. Researchers from LSU's Museum of Natural Science have found that time and a species' ability to move play greater parts in the process of speciation. This research was published today in the print edition of Nature. ...> Full Article
