Hummingbird Adaptation in the Andes Reveals New Clues to the Biology of Evolution

Stony Brook University

Genetic changes are necessary for species to evolve and adapt to new environments. However, how can one predict such genetic changes? A new study led by Stony Brook University researchers reveals that this may be possible at a molecular level.

Evolutionary Gene Loss May Help Explain Why Only Humans are Prone to Heart Attacks

University of California San Diego Health

University of California San Diego School of Medicine scientists say the loss of a single gene two to three million years ago in our ancestors may have resulted in a heightened risk of cardiovascular disease in all humans as a species, while also setting up a further risk for red meat-eating humans.

Genes linked to death from sepsis ID’d in mice

Washington University in St. Louis

Bacteria in the bloodstream can trigger an overwhelming immune response that causes sepsis. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found genes that help protect the body's cells from dying during sepsis, which could lead to new treatments for the life-threatening condition.
