Scientists have conducted the first comprehensive analysis of the woolly mammoth genome and have found extensive genetic changes that allowed mammoths to adapt to life in the arctic.
Evolution doesn't stop for any creature-not even humans. Now, scientists have found that humans have evolved to be smarter and taller than their predecessors.
The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) may be making new worlds. The agency wants to create organisms that will turn Mars into another Earth.
It turns out that genetically modified wheat may be falling a bit short. The GMO, which was designed to repel aphids, hasn't managed to do so in a field test.
We apparently haven't learned from Jurassic Park. The renowned paleontologist, Dr. Jack Horner, is spearheading genetic research that could potentially engineer dinosaurs back into existence within the next 10 years.
Evolution may be to blame for a certain agricultural pest that began plaguing apple growers in the 1850s.
Scientists may have discovered a genetic switch that determines whether germ cells become sperm or eggs. The findings may tell researchers a bit more about reproduction.
How would genetically modified fish impact an ecosystem? What happened if they escaped? Now, scientists are examining what would happen if genetically modified fish escaped into wild populations.
How do wild mongooses avoid inbreeding? That's a good question.
How did the Bronze Age change Europe? Scientists have taken a closer look at Europe's genetic past and establish how the foundation for modern Eurasia was laid.
Overlap between genetic effects also partly explains why women who have children earlier also have a higher number of children.
Though there has been progress made in the fight against ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease, researchers are continually learning more about the rare illness, and how to properly manage the progressive symptoms.
