DOE/Joint Genome Institute Glomeromycota is an ancient lineage of fungi that has a symbiotic relationship with roots that goes back nearly 420 million years to the earliest plants. More than two thirds of the world's plants depend on this soil-dwelling symbiotic fungus to survive, including critical agricultural crops such as wheat, cassava, and rice. The analysis of the Rhizophagus irregularis genome has revealed that this asexual fungus doesn't shuffle its genes the way researchers...

A new view of our chromosomes reveals a complex picture Chromosomes – the 46 tightly-wrapped packages of genetic material in our cells – are iconically depicted as X-shaped formations. However, those neat X’s only appear when a cell is about to divide and the entire contents of its genome duplicated. Until now researchers have not been able to get a good picture of the way that our DNA – some two meters of strands all told – is neatly bundled into the nucleus while enabling...

Believed to 'ingest' DNA from other simple organisms Up to ten per cent of the active genes of an organism that has survived 80 million years without sex are foreign, a new study from the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London reveals. The asexual organism, the bdelloid rotifer, has acquired a tenth of its active genes from bacteria and other simple organisms like fungi and algae. The findings were reported today in the journal PLoS Genetics. Bdelloid rotifers are best...

Geologist Find Unusual Land Formation On Mars
2012-03-23 06:10:46

Geologists at the University of Washington found that a previously unseen landform on Mars could help provide a window into the geological history of the Red Planet. The "periodic bedrock ridges", or PBRs, look like sand dunes, but the scientists say that they are actually made from wind erosion of bedrock. "These bedforms look for all the world like sand dunes but they are carved into hard rock by wind," David Montgomery, a UW professor of Earth and space sciences, said in a press...
