Darwin’s Finches Show How Genes Shape Evolution

Darwin’s Finches Show How Genes Shape Evolution

Darwin’s finches have shown scientists the genetic mechanisms that explain how birds develop varying beak shapes in regards to fluctuations in their environment. The research involves the quintessential Galapagos finches Charles Darwin used for his research on natural selection. Originally, he was prompted to use finches as the basis of his research due to the […]

Albino Dolphin Visits Florida Shores

Albino Dolphin Visits Florida Shores

Just one month ago, an albino bottlenose dolphin was captured on video by Danielle Carter, a member of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), while she visited some of the more empty shores in the area. The sighting, while rare, is not the first of its kind. According to several distinguished researchers, there are […]

Genes Affected by Spatial Distribution of Fibers

Genes Affected by Spatial Distribution of Fibers

A research team drawn from Poland’s Nencki Institute and Spain’s Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante (INA) recently found that gene expression can be affected by the distribution of space between units of genetic material, packaged as special fibers. This discovery, which came out of their tests using laboratory mice, could potentially bring the medical community […]
