The Black Death was one of the most devastating sicknesses to spread across Europe. Now for the first time ever, scientists have studied the Black Death bacterium's entire family tree to understand how some family members evolved to be so deadly.
Scientists have mapped the genetic profile of the rainbow trout, a versatile fish whose relatively recent genetic history reveals new clues as to how vertebrates evolved.
It turns out that the chickens of today are a lot different from the chicken that lives a few hundred years ago. Scientists have taken a look at the DNA from the bones of birds that lived 200 to 2,300 years ago in Europe, and have found that they've evolved drastically since then.
A little-known cave insect has called into question about what it means to be female. It turns out that this insect has a rather unusual sex life and that the female is the one with the penis rather than the male.
Sharks may not be the living fossils that scientists once thought they were. An ancient fossil has revealed that the living sharks of today are far more advanced in evolutionary terms than once believed.
Ancient DNA from archaeological skeletons shows that European’s had darker skin, hair, and eye pigmentation 5,000 years ago
Evolution of life on Earth began about 3.5 billion years ago but it has not been a constant or continuous process.
Despite the findings of modern science, a recent survey by the National Science Foundation shows that as many as one in four Americans believe that the earth revolves around the sun.
In honor of the holiday, don’t be completely discouraged if the girl of your dreams didn’t accept your request to be your Valentine. If her reasoning isn’t completely based on your shortcomings, studies have shown that her sexual preferences vary during ovulation cycles.
Bill Nye “the science guy”, a childhood idol of many, will be participating in a creationism vs. evolution debate tomorrow night. His opponent is Ken Ham, who is one of the founders of a creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis.
Millions of years after the first single cells appeared, there now exists various multicellular organisms: plants, animals, fungi, algae, etc. But how has it all evolved over millions of years?
It turns out that calcium absorption wasn't the only reason that Europeans evolved milk tolerance. Scientists have uncovered ancient DNA from early Iberian farmers and have found another reason why Europeans may have evolved milk tolerance.
