However, the correspondence between bird and dinosaur wrist bones is controversial. To identify the bones in the bird wrist, data can be drawn from two radically different sources: (1) embryology and […]

Evolutionary arms race via ancient viruses in primate evolution

New findings by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, suggest that an evolutionary arms race between rival elements within the genomes of primates drove the evolution of complex regulatory networks that orchestrate the activity of genes in every cell of our bodies. The arms race is between mobile DNA sequences known as “retrotransposons” […]

Huge galaxies grow by eating nearby smaller ones

Massive galaxies in the Universe have stopped making their own stars and are instead snacking on nearby galaxies, according to research by Australian scientists. Astronomers looked at more than 22,000 galaxies and found that while smaller galaxies are very efficient at creating stars from gas, the most massive galaxies are much less efficient at star […]
