A team of international scientists reports today they have sequenced and annotated the genome of the sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera), which is thought to have a powerful genetic system.
According to a report in the journal Nature Genetics, an international team of geneticists has announced the successful sequencing of the sea lamprey genome.
Scientists have discovered a genetic cause of extreme thinness for the first time, in a study published today in the journal Nature.
People can develop new technologies and animals may migrate to other regions.
Hybrid plants with multiple genome copies show evidence of preferential treatment of the genes from one ancient parent over the genes of the other parent, even to the point where some of the unfavored genes eventually are deleted.
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in TÃ¼bingen, Germany, and Indiana University in Bloomington have now been able to measure for the first time directly the speed with which new mutations occur in plants.
In a step that advances our ability to discern the ancient evolutionary relationships between different genes and their biological functions, researchers have provided insight into the present-day outcome of a single gene duplication that occurred over a hundred million years ago in an ancestor of modern plants.
