Forest geneticists at Oregon State University have created genetically modified poplar trees that grow faster, have resistance to insect pests and are able to retain expression of the inserted genes for at least 14 years.

Butterflies Offer Insights Into Evolution

A new method that could give a deeper insight into evolutional biology by tracing directionality in gene migration has just appeared in EPJ Data Science.

Rare Ethiopian Wolves Under Threat

Ethiopian wolf populations are genetically fragmenting, scientists say. This is cause for concern because the Ethiopian wolf is the world's rarest canine and fewer than 500 of Africa's only wolf species remain in the wild.
