Recently, large studies have identified some of the genetic basis for important common diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, but most of the genetic contribution to them remains undiscovered.
An article recently published in the Journal of Mammalogy, Volume 94 Issue 6 focuses on the struggling Florida manatee population and analyzes the factors pertaining to their decline.
Armed with nothing but a laptop and an Internet connection, researchers from the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at MIT say they were able to uncover the identities of almost 50 people who donated DNA to genetic research studies.
The researchers say that a recent genetic analysis shows evidence of a substantial flow of genes running between the Indian and Australian populations about 4,000 years ago.
When Charles Darwin first sketched how species evolved by natural selection, he drew what looked like a tree.
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.
The National Geographic unveiled the next phase of its Genographic Project, which aims to use DNA to map the history of human migration.
The results of a new study help fill in the gaps in scientific understanding of both Native American and Northern European ancestry.
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...
