Ernst Mayr's theory illustrated in genetic epidemiology studies

...r in another. This is a very real phenomenon that documents Mayr's point of view." Templeton said that the Fisher camp views major and minor genes as if they are the properties of the single gene itself.

Setting the standard for computer models of life

... a set of 'annotation schemes'. The first of these documents the model's provenance: who created it, whether it's been modified, and a stable link to its full description; the second scheme links the components of the model to relevant bioinformatics resources: for example, a model of alcohol metabolism in the...

A bug's life: Exceptional genomic stability yet rapid protein evolution in a carpenter ant mutualist

...utualists remains unclear. While the current study documents rapid changes in amino acid sequence through evolutionary time, some studies suggest that most changes in proteins are slightly harmful to the bacterium and by extension, to its host. "Overall, the picture emerging is one of genome deterioration, wi...

A step toward the $1,000 personal genome using readily available lab equipment
