Quotes

...In fact, Charles Darwin wrote in OnOn the Origin of Species that "…no animal is more difficult to tame than the young of the wild rabbit; scarcely any animal is tamer than the young of the tame rabbit" . Darwin used domestic animals as a proof-of-principle that it is possible to change phenotypes by selection...
"complete` disequilibrium), but their interpretation is slightly different. |D'| is defined in such a way that it is equal to 1 if just two or three of the possible haplotypes are present, and it is <1 if all four possible haplotypes are present. Therefore, a value of |D'| that is <1 indicates that historical recombination may have occurred between two sites (recurrent mutation can also cause |D'| to be <1, but for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) this is usually regarded as being less likely than recombination). The measure r.sup.2 represents the statistical correlation between two sites, and takes the value of 1 if only two haplotypes are present."
...According to news reporting out of Chesterfield, Missouri , by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Mimulus guttatus and M nasutus are an evolutionary and ecological model sister species pair differentiated by ecology, mating system, and partial reproductive isolation. Despite extensive research on this system, the history of divergence and differentiation in this sister pair is unclear."
...our understanding of human genetics, can be applied to bacteria," says Professor Stephen Bentley, a senior author from the Sanger Institute. "This opens up new avenues of research into antibiotic resistance, transmission and virulence that were previously thought impossible in bacterial genomics."
