Stay complex, my friends (12/30/2014)

Stay complex, my friendsThe KISS concept -- keep it simple, stupid -- may work for many situations. However, when it comes to evolution, complexity appears to be key for prosperity and propagating future generations. ...> Full Article


DNA sheds light on why largest lemurs disappeared (12/29/2014)

DNA sheds light on why largest lemurs disappearedDNA from giant lemurs that lived thousands of years ago in Madagascar may help explain why the animals went extinct, and what makes some lemurs more at risk today. Scientists have little doubt that humans played a role in the giant lemurs' demise. By comparing the species that died out to those that survived, scientists hope to better predict which lemurs are most in need of protection in the future. ...> Full Article


Microbiome may have shaped early human populations (12/28/2014)

Vanderbilt mathematician Glenn Webb and NYU microbiologist Martin Blaser propose that the microbes which live on our bodies may have influenced the age structure of human populations in prehistoric times. ...> Full Article


Big-data analysis reveals gene sharing in mice (12/27/2014)

Big-data analysis reveals gene sharing in miceRice University scientists have detected at least three potential hybridization events that likely shaped the evolutionary paths of 'old world' mice, two in recent times and one in the ancient past. ...> Full Article


Reshaping the horse through millennia (12/26/2014)

Reshaping the horse through millenniaWhole genome sequencing of modern and ancient horses unveils the genes that have been selected by humans in the process of domestication through the last 5,500 years, but also reveals the cost of this domestication. An international research group reports that a significant part of the genetic variation in modern domesticated horses could be attributed to interbreeding with the descendants of a now extinct population of wild horses. This population was distinct from the only surviving wild horse population. ...> Full Article


Viral 'fossils' study on birds finds fewer infections than in mammals (12/25/2014)

Professor Edward Holmes, from the University of Sydney, has contributed to research published in Science and Genome Biology by screening 48 avian genomes. The research found that genomic 'fossils' of past viral infections are up to thirteen times less common in birds than mammals. ...> Full Article


Slow rate of croc mutation revealed in major study (12/24/2014)

Slow rate of croc mutation revealed in major studyIn research led by Texas Tech Uni a team of researchers from the University of Sydney's Faculty of Veterinary Science has sequenced three crocodilians species and revealed that their rate of evolution is approximately four times slower than birds'. ...> Full Article


Scientists reconstruct genome of common ancestor of crocodiles, birds, dinosaurs (12/23/2014)

Crocodiles are the closest living relatives of birds, sharing a common ancestor that lived around 240 million years ago and also gave rise to the dinosaurs. A new study of crocodilian genomes reveals an exceptionally slow rate of genome evolution in this group. The researchers used the crocodilian genomes, combined with newly published bird genomes, to reconstruct a partial genome of the common ancestor of crocodiles, birds, and dinosaurs. ...> Full Article


Tooth loss in birds occurred about 116 million years ago (12/22/2014)

A question that has intrigued biologists is: Were teeth lost in the common ancestor of all living birds or convergently in two or more independent lineages of birds? A research team led by biologists at the University of California, Riverside and Montclair State University, NJ, used the degraded remnants of tooth genes in birds to determine that teeth were lost in the common ancestor of all living birds more than 100 million years ago. ...> Full Article


New method helps map species' genetic heritage (12/21/2014)

Where did the songbird get its song? What branch of the bird family tree is closer to the flamingo -- the heron or the sparrow? These questions seem simple, but are actually difficult for geneticists to answer. A new, sophisticated technique called statistical binning developed by researchers at the University of Illinois and the University of Texas at Austin can help researchers construct more accurate species trees detailing the lineage of genes and the relationships between species. ...> Full Article


Human DNA shows traces of 40 million-year battle for survival between primate and pathogen (12/20/2014)

Human DNA shows traces of 40 million-year battle for survival between primate and pathogenExamination of DNA from 21 primate species -- from squirrel monkeys to humans -- exposes an evolutionary war against infectious bacteria over iron that circulates in the host's bloodstream. Supported by experimental evidence, these findings, published in Science on Dec. 12, demonstrate the vital importance of an increasingly appreciated defensive strategy called nutritional immunity. The study models an approach for uncovering reservoirs of genetic resistance to bacterial infections, knowledge that could be used to confront antibiotic-resistance and emerging diseases. ...> Full Article


Biologist gains insight into genetic evolution of birds (12/19/2014)

Biologist gains insight into genetic evolution of birdsJay Storz, a Susan J. Rosowski Associate Professor of Biological Sciences, led a research group that examined the evolution of multi-gene families shared by birds and mammals. ...> Full Article


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
