The story of animal domestication retold (4/20/2014)

The story of animal domestication retoldA review of recent research on the domestication of large herbivores for 'The Modern View of Domestication,' a special feature of PNAS, suggests that neither intentional breeding nor genetic isolation were as significant as traditionally thought. ...> Full Article


Trisomy 21: How an extra little chromosome throws the entire genome off balance (4/19/2014)

Trisomy 21: How an extra little  chromosome throws the  entire genome off balanceA study conducted by Stylianos Antonarakis and his team in the Department of Genetic Medicine and Development at the University of Geneva Faculty of Medicine light on how the extra chromosome 21 upsets the equilibrium of the entire genome, causing a wide variety of pathologies. ...> Full Article


At the origin of cell division (4/18/2014)

At the origin of cell divisionMovement and the ability to divide are two fundamental traits of living cells. The origin of these abilities could rely on very simple physical mechanisms, which have been simulated by scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies of Trieste in a study just published in Physical Review Letters. Luca Giomi and Antonio DeSimone have reproduced motility in their models, by acting on a single parameter until they caused the 'cells' to divide spontaneously without the action of external forces. ...> Full Article


Study finds new links between number of duplicated genes and adaptation (4/17/2014)

Liken it to a case of where two genes are better than one. Scientists have found a class of genes, called small-scale duplication genes, or SSDs, that are important for adapting to novel environments and surviving environmental changes. ...> Full Article


Does germ plasm accelerate evolution? (4/16/2014)

Scientists at The University of Nottingham have published research in the leading academic journal Science that challenges a long held belief about the way certain species of vertebrates evolved. ...> Full Article


Faithful allies since the Cretaceous (4/16/2014)

Faithful allies since the CretaceousScientists from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology and the University of Regensburg, Germany, in collaboration with researchers in the USA, discovered that certain wasps tightly control mother-to-offspring transmission of their bacterial symbionts. This stabilizes the symbiotic alliance and contributed to its persistence over the past 68-110 million years. ...> Full Article


Ferns borrowed genes to flourish in low light (4/15/2014)

Ferns borrowed genes to flourish in low lightDuring the age of the dinosaurs, the arrival of flowering plants as competitors could have spelled doom for primitive ferns. Instead, ferns diversified and flourished under the new canopy -- using a mysterious gene that helped them adapt to low-light environments. A team led by Duke University scientists has pinpointed the curious origins of this gene and determined that it was transferred to ferns from a group of unassuming, mossy plants called hornworts. ...> Full Article


Study tests theory that life originated at deep sea vents (4/11/2014)

Study tests theory that life originated at deep sea ventsOne of the greatest mysteries facing humans is how life originated on Earth. Scientists have determined approximately when life began, roughly 3.8 billion years ago, but there is still intense debate about exactly how life began. One possibility -- that simple metabolic reactions emerged near ancient seafloor hot springs, enabling the leap from a non-living to a living world -- has grown in popularity in the last two decades. ...> Full Article


Scientists firm up origin of cold-adapted yeasts that make cold beer (4/10/2014)

Scientists firm up origin of cold-adapted yeasts that make cold beerAs one of the most widely consumed and commercially important beverages on the planet, one would expect the experts to know everything there is to know about lager beer. Now, however, scientists are beginning to color in the margins of yeast ecology and genetics, identifying new strains in new environments and using the tools of molecular biology to ferret out traits that could aid industrial fermentation technologies. ...> Full Article


Lactase persistence alleles reveal ancestry of southern African Khoe pastoralists (4/9/2014)

In a new study a team of researchers lead from Uppsala University show how lactase persistence variants tell the story about the ancestry of the Khoe people in southern Africa. The team concludes that pastoralist practices were brought to southern Africa by a small group of migrants from eastern Africa. The study is published in Current Biology today. ...> Full Article

The human 'hairless' gene identified: One form of baldness explained (4/5/2014)

It's not a hair-brained idea: A new research report appearing in the April 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal explains why people with a rare balding condition called 'atrichia with papular lesions' lose their hair, and it identifies a strategy for reversing this hair loss. ...> Full Article


Going batty for jumping DNA as a cause of species diversity (4/4/2014)

The vesper bats are the largest and best-known common family of bats. Authors Ray et al., wanted to get at the root cause of this diversity by taking advantage of two vesper bat species whose genomes have recently been sequenced. They speculated that one cause of this diversity might be jumping elements in the genome, called DNA transposons, which are more active and recent in the evolutionary history of this family than any other mammal. ...> Full Article
