Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

... Although it's not clear why losing the armor is a benefit to freshwater fish, Kingsley noted that the unarmored fish are lighter and faster than their more burdened marine cousins. In an effort to learn more about how the armor trait evolves so quickly, Kingsley and his colleagues sequenced that genetic re...
