May 22, 2015 7:00 am | by The Univ. of Texas at Austin | News | Comments

Despite a billion years of evolution separating humans from the baker’s yeast in their refrigerators, hundreds of genes from an ancestor that the two species have in common live on nearly unchanged in them both. Biologists have created thriving strains of genetically engineered yeast using human genes and found that certain groups of genes are surprisingly stable over evolutionary time.


Dogs May Have Been Man's Best Friend for Longer than Believed

Dogs' special relationship to humans may go back 27,000 to 40,000 years, according to genomic analysis of an ancient Taimyr wolf bone. Earlier genome-based estimates have suggested that the ancestors of modern-day dogs diverged from wolves no more than 16,000 years ago, after the last Ice Age.

Ability of GM Crops to Deter Pests Diminishes

May 21, 2015 3:00 pm | by North Carolina State Univ. | News | Comments

A new study has found that the toxin in a widely used genetically modified (GM) crop is having little impact on the crop pest called corn earworm– which is consistent with predictions made almost 20 years ago that had been largely ignored. The study may be a signal to pay closer attention to warning signs about the development of resistance in agricultural pests to GM crops.
