Completely Neutral Evolutionary Changes Helped Shape Our Genome

...red times. "For a long time, the basic belief of evolution was that all random genetic changes that manage to stick around have some selective advantage. But our work adds to the case that frequently, we are what we are largely due to random changes that are completely neutral," said Nicholas Katsanis, Ph.D....

Amorous African Fish Exchange Electric Pulses While Mating

...sh, researchers hope to gain new insights into the evolution of animals' breeding behavior and communication. The new study suggests that electrical signaling may have been shaped in part by sexual selection, the evolutionary process responsible for many animals' elaborate decorative features and courtship ...

Natural Selection in Butterflies

... pressures, such as an extremely skewed sex ratio, evolution can happen very fast." Charlat pointed out that, unlike mutations that govern such traits as wing color or antennae length, a genetic change that affects the sex ratio of a population has a very wide impact on the biology of the species. It is no...

Evolution of HIV from African Greek Monkeys

... shed light on the future course and timing of the evolution of HIV. The new research also challenges the idea that one ancient SIV was transmitted vertically, down through time, and evolved into many SIVs as its original host diverged into many different species. Wertheim and Worobey suggest various SIVs a...

Ancient Viral Defense may Explain Susceptibility to HIV: Study

...IV-1," said Emerman. "In the end, this drove human evolution to be more susceptible to HIV," or human immunodeficiency virus. The study does not have any implications for modern-day research into HIV but sheds some light on how ancient viruses have shaped our "viral defenses," he said....

Genetic Cause of Inherited Eye Diseases Identified

... with mammals, have been thought to be remnants of evolution without much purpose. But new research has shown that mutations in genes that encode the proteins of cilia are common causes of a host of genetic diseases, including inherited retinal diseases and polycystic kidney disease. Cilia diseases can also ...

Another Sexual Attraction is Possible ...

...hence they are thought to play a major role in the evolution of mating barriers and in the formation of new species. The fact that conspecific males and females recognize each other by their common use of a highly specific "language" is likely to decrease the fitness of mutants that might use slightly differ...

Revealing the Secrets of Gut Ecosystem

...ence in the intestine. The new study tracked the evolution of the microbial ecosystems in 14 healthy, full-term human infants that were breast fed. Most of the bacteria that live within humans do not thrive in an oxygen-rich environment, and thus are difficult or impossible to grow in culture in the lab. So ...

A New Signaling Mechanism in Drosophila

RNA Play a Vital Role in Gene Activity

...es." The work will also provide insight into the evolution of gene regulation. Because RNA is thought to have preceded DNA in the evolutionary timeline, it makes sense that it still plays a role in controlling DNA's function. Rinn and Chang's Stanford collaborators on the research include cancer biology gr...

Female Ducks Develop Complicated Genitals to Outwit Aggressive Males

... a species evolved better defenses, they drove the evolution of male phalluses. The males have to step up to produce a longer or more flexible phallus, she said. "You can envision an evolutionary scenario that, as the male phallus increases in size, the female creates more barriers. You get this evolutionary...

Why Humans Fail to Act on Climate Change

... "We are, well, a little like rats, programmed by evolution to find advantages and exploit them," said Ernst, who is also spokesman for a panel on environmental psychology in the German Society of Psychology. "Short term advantages are preferred to the long-term variety." Ernst made his remarks as a scienti...

WHO Director Urges Nations to Share Bird Flu Virus Strains
