New Avenues for Improving Modern Wheat

Since the Agricultural Revolution about 12,000 years ago, humans have been selectively breeding plants with desirable traits such as high grain yield and disease resistance. Over time, Triticum ... read more

Oxygen Linked With the Boom and Bust of Early Animal Evolution

Extreme fluctuations in atmospheric oxygen levels corresponded with evolutionary surges and extinctions in animal biodiversity during the Cambrian explosion, finds a new ... read more

First they mapped the genome of wheat; now they have reconstructed its breeding history. Scientists have examined the genetic diversity of wheat varieties in the WHEALBI study. By doing so, they ... read more

Scientists Discover Evolutionary Link to Modern-Day Sea Echinoderms

Scientists have discovered a new species that lived more than 500 million years ago -- a form of ancient echinoderm that was ancestral to modern-day groups such as sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sea ... read more

The combination of a big population, good genes and luck helps explain how a species of fish in the Houston Ship Channel was able to adapt to what normally would be lethal levels of toxins for most ... read more

A Model to Decipher the Complexity of Gene Regulation

SysGenetiX project (UNIGE/UNIL) aimed to investigate the regulatory elements, as well as the manifold interactions between them and with genes, with the ultimate goal of understanding the mechanisms ... read more

Working to understand the genetics of peanut disease resistance and yield, researchers led by scientists at the University of Georgia have uncovered the peanut's unlikely and complicated ... read more

Each year on the first Saturday in May, Thoroughbred horses reach speeds of over 40 miles per hour as they compete to win the Kentucky Derby. But the domestic horse wasn't always bred for speed. ... read more

Evolving Alongside Viruses Impacts Susceptibility to Future Infections

Researchers have shown that when fruit flies co-evolve with viruses, different genetic changes occur to those caused by encountering a virus for the first time, altering the insects' ... read more

Virologists have discovered a giant virus that, much like the mythical monster Medusa, can turn almost amoeba to a stone-like ... read more

Darwin Can Help Your Doctor

Taking an evolutionary view can inspire new ideas in clinical microbiology. And looking at microbial communities, rather than just the pathogenic micro-organisms, can also lead to new insights. That ... read more
