Plasmids, in an evolutionary game of high-stakes poker, are swapped freely among bacteria in order to gain the upper hand---or in the case of pathogenic E. coli , to outwit its competitors by colonizing animals and ca...

Coping and copulation behavior may help calculate diabetes risk

Any variants or competitors to the genetic code that arose later would have been unable to spread and establish. ...

Tool developed to silence genes in specific tissues using RNAi
