Widespread signals of convergent adaptation to high altitude in Asia and America

Abstract

Living at high-altitude is one of the most difficult challenges that humans had to cope with during their evolution. Whereas several genomic studies have revealed some of the genetic bases of adaptations in Tibetan, Andean and Ethiopian populations, relatively little evidence of converg...read more

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Genome Dynamics and Adaptation

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.

Hypoxia (Preprints)

Hypoxia is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply at the tissue level. Hypoxia may be classified as either generalized, affecting the whole body, or local, affecting a region of the body. Discover the latest preprints here.

Genetic Speciation

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.
