Latest Population genetics Stories
According to new report from BCC Research, the global single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping market is expected to grow to more than $11.5 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual
Cut off by freeways and human development, mountain lions in southern California are facing a severe loss of genetic diversity
The first large-scale, comprehensive analysis of the genomic diversity of Mexico — led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine, the University of California-San Francisco and the Mexican National Institute of Genomic Medicine — has identified a dazzling mosaic of genotypes and population substructures across the country.
The diamondback terrapin is known for the diverse patterns intricately grooved into its shell. This pattern makes the turtle instantly recognizable, however it does not solve the problem of conservation for these coastal animals.
While many tiger conservation efforts focus on the numbers of a population, maintaining the big cats’ genetic diversity is just as important, according to a report published on Thursday in the Journal of Heredity.
Dog owners in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia might want to consider penning up their dogs more often: hybridization of wolves with shepherd dogs might be more common, and more recent, than previously thought
What happens when physicists play (using mathematical instruments) with the genetics of populations?
A pair of new studies from the Wildlife Conservation Society, Idaho State University, and the University of Nevada Reno look at the surprising variety of factors that prevent two closely related species of woodrats from becoming a single hybrid species despite the existence of hybrid individuals where the two species come into contact.
4-Hour Fitness Formula reviews have been showing up all over the Internet, and BethsBestChoice.com reveals the truth about the program that promises fat loss, a flatter belly, and improved health.
Researchers including Jackson Laboratory Professor Gary Churchill, Ph.D., have found a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) difference in cocaine and methamphetamine response between two substrains of the C57BL/6 or "Black 6" inbred laboratory mouse, pointing to Cyfip2 as a regulator of cocaine response with a possible role in addiction.
Even in the wild, this rodent is associated with humans by destroying crops and stored food. The house mouse is also known as the fancy mouse, a common pet. It is also a widely used laboratory animal, important for testing in genetics, biology, and medicine. There are three recognized subspecies of the house mouse. These mice thrive in a number of locations including fields, houses, and commercial structures. An adult male house mouse can have a body length of up to 3.9 in, and tail length...
