Practice doesn't always make perfect. Scientists have found that there's more to it than that, and a new study reveals what parts of the brain account for individual talent and what parts of the brain are activated through training.
The stature of pygmies is well-suited to tropical rainforests, but the mechanisms underlying their growth remain poorly understood.--until now.
It turns out that intelligent people live longer. Scientists have discovered that a person's genes determines not only how smart they are, but also that these genetics are linked to how long they live.
Colorado's bighorn sheep population is declining and now, scientists have found out that it's not due to inbreeding.
Scientists have discovered that a genetic mutation is responsible for the juicy kernels on a corn cob and caused them to be out in the open rather than trapped inside an inedible casing as tough as a walnut shell.
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.
