Did men evolve navigation skills to find mates? (11/25/2014)

Did men evolve navigation skills to find mates?A University of Utah study of two African tribes found evidence that men evolved better navigation ability than women because men with better spatial skills - the ability to mentally manipulate objects -- can roam farther and have children with more mates. ...> Full Article


Bacteria become 'genomic tape recorders' (11/24/2014)

MIT researchers find engineered E. coli can store long-term memories of chemical exposure, other events in their DNA. ...> Full Article


Genetic tweak gave yellow fever mosquitoes a nose for human odor (11/23/2014)

Genetic tweak gave yellow fever mosquitoes a nose for human odorOne of the world's deadliest mosquitoes sustains its taste for human blood thanks in part to a genetic tweak that makes it more sensitive to human odor, according to new research. ...> Full Article


Supercomputing beyond genealogy reveals surprising European ancestors (11/22/2014)

Supercomputing beyond genealogy reveals surprising European ancestorsMost Europeans today derive from three distinct populations, as evidenced by sequenced genomes of nine ancient remains and 2,345 contemporary humans.Genomic analysis of modern and ancient DNA, combined with archeological evidence is revealing new complexity in human history.Scientists used the NSF XSEDE Stampede supercomputer of the Texas Advanced Computing Center to model and compare genomic data of ancient and modern Europeans. ...> Full Article


The cat's meow: Genome reveals clues to domestication (11/21/2014)

The cat's meow: Genome reveals clues to domesticationCats and humans have shared the same households for at least 9,000 years, but we still know very little about how our feline friends became domesticated. An analysis of the cat genome by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis reveals some surprising clues. The research appears Nov. 10 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Early Edition. ...> Full Article


Rabbit-proof hoof: Ungulates suppressed lagomorph evolution (11/20/2014)

Rabbit-proof hoof: Ungulates suppressed lagomorph evolutionRodents and rabbits are sister groups, but while rodents have diversified to over 2,000 living species and an enormous range of body sizes, lagomorphs (rabbits, hares, and pikas) are limited to fewer than 100 relatively small species. A new study shows, surprisingly, that competition with ungulates -- hoofed mammals -- intensified by climate change, are to blame for the lagomorphs' limited diversity. ...> Full Article


Complete 9,000-year-old frozen bison mummy found in Siberia (11/20/2014)

Many large charismatic mammals went extinct at the end of the Ice Age -- approximately 11,000 years ago, including the Steppe bison, Bison priscus. A recent find in Eastern Siberia has uncovered one of these bison, literally, frozen in time. ...> Full Article


Nature adores a hybrid (11/19/2014)

Nature adores a hybridNew research from Concordia, published in the journal Evolutionary Applications, shows that after a few generations of breeding and natural selection, hybrid fish are genetically as robust as their purely wild forefathers. ...> Full Article


Ancient DNA shows earliest European genomes weathered the Ice Age (11/18/2014)

Ancient DNA shows earliest European genomes weathered the Ice AgeA genome taken from a 36,000 skeleton reveals an early divergence of Eurasians once they had left Africa, and allows scientists to better assess the point at which 'admixture' -- or interbreeding -- between Eurasians and Neanderthals occurred. The latest research also points to a previously unknown population lineage as old as the first population separations since humans dispersed out of Africa. ...> Full Article


Discovering the undiscovered -- advancing new tools to fill in the microbial tree of life (11/17/2014)

Discovering the undiscovered -- advancing new tools to fill in the microbial tree of lifeIn a perspective piece published Nov. 6 in the journal Science, Eddy Rubin, Director of the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute discusses why the time is right to apply genomic technologies to discover new life on Earth. 'Nature has been tinkering with life for at least three billion years and we now have a new set of ways to look for novel forms of life that have so far eluded discovery.' ...> Full Article


Ancient genomes show the European meta-population (11/16/2014)

DNA recovered from a 36,000 year old fossil skeleton found in Russia shows early divergence of Eurasians once they had left Africa, and the deep shared ancestry of Europeans. ...> Full Article


Evolution of competitiveness (11/15/2014)

Virtually all organisms in the living world compete with members of their own species. However, individuals differ strongly in how much they invest into their competitive ability. Some individuals are highly competitive and eager to get access to high-quality resources, while others seem to avoid competition, instead making prudent use of the lower-quality resources that are left over for them. A theoretical study published in 'Nature Communications' sheds some new light on these findings. ...> Full Article


Scripps Research Institute scientists make enzyme that could help explain origins of life (11/14/2014)

Scripps Research Institute scientists make enzyme that could help explain origins of lifeMimicking natural evolution in a test tube, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have devised an enzyme with a unique property that might have been crucial to the origin of life on Earth. Aside from illuminating one possible path for life's beginnings, the achievement is likely to yield a powerful tool for evolving new and useful molecules. ...> Full Article


Koala study reveals clues about origins of the human genome (11/13/2014)

Koala study reveals clues about origins of the human genomeEight percent of your genome derives from retroviruses that inserted themselves into human sex cells millions of years ago. In a recent study scientists from the University of Illinois discovered that 39 different koala retroviruses in a koala's genome were all endogenous, which means passed down to the koala from one parent or the other; one of the koala retroviruses was found in both parents. ...> Full Article


Scientists resolve the evolution of insects (11/12/2014)

Scientists resolve the evolution of insectsA collaboration of more than 100 researchers from 10 countries announce the results of an unprecedented scientific study that resolves the history of the evolution of insects. The results are published in Science, the world's leading peer-reviewed research journal, and include answers to many long held questions about the evolutionary history of the world's largest and most diverse group of organisms. ...> Full Article
