When Boy Fish Build Castles to Impress Girls, Boy Genes ‘Turn On’ and ‘Tune In’

Georgia Institute of Technology

What if we could observe genes firing off signals to cause some behaviors? We're getting closer. Researchers were able to directly match gene regulation with ritual mating behavior in fish. Their research field may also give some insight into autism spectrum disorder.

Replaying the Tape of Life: Is It Possible?

Washington University in St. Louis

A review published in the Nov. 9 issue of Science explores the complexity of evolution’s predictability in extraordinary detail. In it, researchers at Kenyon College, Michigan State University and Washington University in St. Louis closely examine evidence from a number of empirical studies of evolutionary repeatability and contingency in an effort to fully interrogate ideas about contingency’s role in evolution.

Goldilocks and the optimal mating distance: Neither too small nor too large but just right

University of Michigan

Evolutionary theory predicts that the fitness of an individual is maximized when the genetic differences between its parents are neither too small nor too large but some ideal amount known as the optimal mating distance.

Scientists go ‘Back to the Future’ and Create Flies with Ancient Genes to Study the Evolution of Embryonic Development

New York University

Scientists at New York University and the University of Chicago have created fruit flies carrying reconstructed ancient genes to reveal how ancient mutations drove major evolutionary changes in embryonic development—the impact of which we see today.

Reimagining Evolution Education: Free, Multimedia High School Curriculum Brings New Life to Old Concepts

University of Utah Health

Gone are the days of heavy science textbooks with over-used examples and hard-to-grasp lessons. The Genetic Science Learning Center (GSLC) at the University of Utah is bringing science education into the 21st century with an online, interactive and multimedia curriculum that teaches up-to-date concepts in evolution and genetics to high school students.
