How the Mammoth Got its Wool
Evolutionary change in a gene reconstructed in the lab from the woolly mammoth was part of a suite of adaptations that allowed the mammoth to survive in harsh arctic environments, according to new research.
Animals’ Genomic Buffers May Help Humans
Researchers at Duke University School of Medicine and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School have identified a mechanism that explains why some mutations can be disease-causing in one genome but benign in another.
Expanding the DNA Alphabet: 'Extra' DNA Base Found to be Stable in Mammals
A rare DNA base, previously thought to be a temporary modification, has been shown to be stable in mammalian DNA, suggesting that it plays a key role in cellular function.
Mistletoe Lacks Genes Found in All Complex Organisms
Indiana University scientists have discovered the first known instance of a plant or animal lacking several key genes involved in energy production in cells.
Mold Unlocks New Route to Biofuels
Scientists have made an important discovery that forms the basis for the development of new applications in biofuels and the sustainable manufacturing of chemicals.
Britain Needs 'Super-Sub Bees'
Rare bees and insects must be protected to give British farmers a strong ‘reserve squad’ of pollinating species and prevent potential food shortages in the future, scientists say.
Massive Genome Shift in one Generation
A team of biologists has discovered that an agricultural pest that began plaguing U.S. apple growers in the 1850s likely did so after undergoing extensive and genome-wide changes in a single generation.
Scientists Reveal Underpinnings of Drought Tolerance in Plants
Genome-wide analysis elucidates drought-tolerance system in Arabidopsis.
Crop-rotation Resistant Rootworms Have A Lot Going on in Their Guts
After decades of effort, scientists are finally figuring out how insects develop resistance to environmentally friendly farming practices – such as crop rotation – that are designed to kill them.
Longstanding Problem Put to Rest
Proof that a 40-year-old algorithm for comparing genomes is the best possible will come as a relief to computer scientists.
