Tropics Reputation As Site of Modern Evolutionary Innovation Questioned

The tropics are the birthplace of most rosids, a massive group of flowering plants that includes this Sterculia monosperma, a nut-bearing tree native to southern China and Taiwan. But rosids are diversifying faster in temperate zones, a finding that challenges a longstanding hypothesis about evolution in the tropics. Credit: Miao Sun

CRISPRoff: A New Addition to the CRISPR Toolbox

News

Researchers have described a new gene-editing technology called CRISPRoff that allows researchers to control gene expression with high specificity while leaving the sequence of the DNA unchanged. The method is stable enough to be inherited through hundreds of cell divisions, and is also fully reversible.
