Ancient DNA sequences are able to offer valuable insights into molecular evolutionary processes, but are notoriously difficult to analyze due to molecular damage and exogenous dna contamination. Discover the latest research on Ancient DNA here.
The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
Recent advances in genomic sequencing has led to the discovery of new strains of Archaea and shed light on their evolutionary history. Discover the latest research on Archaeogenetics here.
Inter/Intra-Species: Comparative Sequencing describes the sequencing techniques that compare between and within species genomes. Discover the latest research on comparative sequencing of inter/intra-species here.
Conservation genomics aims to preserve the viability of populations and the biodiversity of living organisms through the use of genomic data. Discover the latest research on Conservation Genomics here.
Environmental genomics deals with large-scale sequence-based information obtained from environmental samples to link organismal capabilities, organism–environment interactions, functional diversity, ecosystem processes, evolution and Earth history. Discover the latest research on Environmental Genomics here.
This feed focuses on molecular models of enzyme evolution and new approaches (such as adaptive laboratory evolution) to metabolic engineering of microorganisms. Here is the latest research.
The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on Evolution of Gene Regulation here.
Speciation depends on the genetic evolution of reproductive barriers that allow populations to diverge from each other. Discover the latest research on Genetic Speciation here.
Genome-scale tools are revolutionizing studies of evolution by providing complete determination of the genetic basis of adaptation. Discover the latest research on Genome Dynamics and Adaptation here.
Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism in which genetic material is transmitted from one organism to another organism. This process is used by bacteria to acquire antibiotic resistance genes and is important for bacterial evolution. Discover the latest research on horizontal gene transfer here.
Hox genes encode evolutionarily conserved transcription factors with key functions in development and evolution. Discover the latest research on Hox Genes and Evolution here.
This feed focuses on mechanisms that underlie the evolution of axonal guidance pathways, neurogenesis, and synaptic connectivity. Here is the latest research.
Gene and whole-genome duplications have occurred repeatedly and broadly throughout the evolutionary history of eukaryotes. Discover the latest research on Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution here.
