The scientists are even able to double the number of oil the algae could generate.
The evolution of smallpox could be better understand in the discovery of the DNA of a mummified child.
A new study found that a set of new genes born by accident may have led to an evolutionary innovation. This 'accident' led to the creation of novel genes, which developed during the course of evolution.
Scientists have sequenced the first ancient Irish human genomes, revealing a bit more about Celtic people.
Scientists have uncovered the genes that may lead to a longer, healthier life. They've looked at the genomes of three organisms and have found the genes associated with the aging process that all three have in common.
Farming may have changed the human genome.
One of the toughest creatures on Earth is the water bear, known formally as the tardigrade. Now,researchers have sequenced its genome have found that it gets a huge chunk of its genome from foreign DNA.
You wouldn't think that cows are all that complex-but they are. Scientists have now taken a closer look at the ancestry of domesticated cattle, and have found that it's more complicated than previously thought.
Snakes may not have arms or legs, but they do have the blueprints for them in their genome.
Imagine regrowing lost limbs. That's exactly what a certain flatworm can do with its regenerative powers. Now, scientists are aiming to learn a bit more about this regenerative ability after sequencing its genome.
