Scientists have reported observing the evolution of Escherichia coli bacteria in a matter of days. What did they really see?
Contrary to being “junk” DNA, HERVs are thought to play at least three major roles.
The news has been buzzing lately about two recent papers that are reporting the sequencing of up to one million bases of the Neanderthal genome.
The Intelligent Design (ID) movement has gained increasing recognition and publicity over the last several years at both local and national levels.
Two articles make claims of having sequenced even smaller bacterial genomes.
Question: If your brand new car breaks down and you take parts from an older car to fix it, is your new car closer to becoming a Model-T?
Although mitochondria and plastids share some similarities with bacteria/cyanobacteria, that alone is not evidence that the organelles originated from them through endosymbiosis.
Mitochondria are sometimes called the “workhorse” of the cell, as they are responsible for producing the majority of the energy molecule ATP.
Many scientists are desperate to find evidence to support their theory or to make the current evidence fit their theory rather than admitting their theory is wrong.
A ScienceDaily article reported that research published in a recent PNAS article gives new evidence as to how manatees may have lost their hindlimbs.
For many years a dogma within evolutionary biology has been that as organisms evolved from mouse to chimp to human their brain size increased (even relative to body weight). Is this valid?
A researcher suggests that a single mutation in mouse DNA is a major contributor to the light coat color seen in beach mice leading to better survival in a sandy environment. The news article states that this “provides evidence that evolution can occur in big leaps.”PDF Download
An article in the July 24, 2006 Washington Post refers to a March 2006 PLoS Biology article that suggests that humans are currently undergoing evolution.
An article published in Nature indicates previous studies may have underestimated the size of the minimal bacterial genome by as much as 50%. Yet, evolutionary significance seems to be lacking.
Scientists have supposedly forced the evolution of an adeno-associated virus (AAV) commonly used in gene therapy. However, a belief in evolution/millions of years is not needed to initiate this resear
In the current controversies about teaching about the origin of life in public schools, there is a general misunderstanding of the differences between “origin science” and “operation science."
