Latest Modern evolutionary synthesis Stories
This week a ground-breaking new resource for scientists went live. More than twenty paleontologists, molecular biologists, and computer programmers from five different countries designed and contributed to a new open-source database that stores carefully reviewed fossil data and makes it accessible worldwide.
The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Magazine EurekaMag.com has published 747 new articles on evolutionary genetics.
Beneficial Mutations have still not been found in the wild, though their existence was confidently predicted in the 1940s.
In a comparison made between the actual progress of evolution and how it would have progressed if the mechanism had been genetic mutation and natural selection, the two progress in opposite directions.

Natural selection was never a good idea, according to Contrarian Evolutionist author Shaun Johnston in the second of a series of articles published at http://www.takeondarwin.com.
National Science Foundation grants will bring together what's known about how species are related.
An innovative, educational computing platform developed by University at Buffalo faculty members and hosted by the cloud (remote, high-capacity, scalable servers) is helping UB students understand parts of evolutionary biology on an entirely new level. Soon, high-school and middle-school students will benefit from the same tool as well.
Clement Loo, a University of Cincinnati doctoral student in the philosophy program, was one of the featured researchers at the biennial meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association Nov. 4-6 in Montreal, Quebec.
Using digital evolution techniques that give scientists the ability to watch evolution in action, Michigan State University researchers have shed new light on what it is that makes species altruistic.
