Molecular biology fills gaps in knowledge of bat evolution

...uencing, analyzed data from portions of 17 nuclear genes from representatives of all bat families. Their results support the hypothesis that the group of large fruit-eating bats from the tropics, that fly mostly during the day - known to biologists as megabats - emerged from four major lineages of smaller...

A new mechanism of regulating RNA degradation

...shown that many of the tools cells use to regulate genes work after transcription, by moderating the activity and the life span of the RNA itself.
