The answer lies in changes in the way our genes work In parallel with modern man (Homo sapiens), there were other, extinct types of humans with whom we lived side by side, such as Neanderthals and the recently discovered Denisovans of Siberia. Yet only Homo sapiens survived. What was it in our genetic makeup that gave us the advantage? The truth is that little is known about our unique genetic makeup as distinguished from our archaic cousins, and how it contributed to the fact that we...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With Neanderthals and modern humans sharing more than 99.8 percent of their genetic material, the differences in DNA between the two species are fairly minimal and a new study has found that the differences seen in phenotypes are mostly caused by certain genes being “switched on” or “switched off.” According to the study published in the journal Science, genetic switches that affect the size and shape of limbs, as well as those...

A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory physicist and his colleagues have found a new application for the tools and mathematics typically used in physics to help solve problems in biology. Specifically, the team used statistical mechanics and mathematical modeling to shed light on something known as epigenetic memory -- how an organism can create a biological memory of some variable condition, such as quality of nutrition or temperature. "The work highlights the interdisciplinary...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While the entire genome has been sequenced and the codes of many genes have been identified, there are is a wide range of unknown mechanisms that interact with the code without changing "letters" of the DNA. These chemical changes to DNA are referred to as the epigenome, and a new study in the journal Science has revealed significant epigenomic activity during brain development. DNA includes four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine...
