Sea Anemone genetics
2014-03-18 13:58:44

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers lead by evolutionary and developmental biologist Ulrich Technau at the University of Vienna say that a sea anemone has a genomic landscape that is half animal, half plant. Developmental biologists found that the genetic landscape of sea anemones features complex regulatory elements similar to that of fruit flies or other animal model systems. However, they also discovered that sea anemones are more similar to plants rather...

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...
