“Rewiring” at Non-Coding Genome Regions Important for Adaptation

News

Scientists shows that ‘genetic rewiring’ at non-coding regions - rather than mutations to protein-coding regions of genes - may play an important role in how cichlid fish are able to rapidly adapt to fill a staggeringly wide range of environmental niches in the East African Rift lakes.
