Nested ‘DNA’ of Ancestor that Mated with Ancient Humans Discovered

Stephanie Pappas Live Science Today’s humans carry the genes of an ancient, unknown ancestor, left there by hominin species intermingling perhaps a million years ago. The ancestor may have been Homo erectus, but no one knows for sure — the genome of that extinct species of human has never been sequenced, said Adam Siepel, a computational biologist at Cold Spring … Continue reading

Primate Specie in Panama May Have Entered the Stone Age

Is this is indeed evolution happening before our eyes? via unexplained-mysteries: Remarkable new footage shows a white-faced capuchin using a stone as a hammer to break open nuts to eat. The discovery was made by an international team of researchers who had set up camera traps around Panama’s Coiba National Park in an effort to capture the capuchins’ behavior on … Continue reading

Dark DNA Will Alter the Way We See Evolution

Ever wondered how giraffe got its huge neck or why snakes are so long. DNA sequencing technology has helped scientists to solve questions that humans have wondered about animals for centuries.The discovery of these phenomenon certainly raises questions about how genomes evolve, and what could have been missed from existing genome sequencing projects. Since we are now able to map … Continue reading

Life on Earth May Have Been Sparked By Meteorites Splashing Into ‘Warm Little Ponds’

A new study argues that meteorites that landed in volcanic pools of water 4 billion years ago were key to jump-starting life on Earth—a theory proposed by Charles Darwin more than 140 years ago. New analysis from McMaster University in Canada and the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy suggests that meteorites that landed in shallow, stagnant pools of water (or … Continue reading

Study Claims to Solve Mystery of How Animals’ Originated on Earth

The origin of animals on planet Earth has long been a mystery, however a new study, which examined 650 million-year-old rocks, claims to finally answer the age-old question. A research team from the Australian National University (ANU) studied ancient molecules buried in the rocks and discovered that a very particular set of circumstances led to the origin of life on … Continue reading

‘Dark DNA’ Could Change Our Perceptions of Evolution

DNA sequencing technology is helping scientists unravel questions that humans have been asking about animals for centuries. By mapping out animal genomes, we now have a better idea of how the giraffe got its huge neck and why snakes are so long. Genome sequencing allows us to compare and contrast the DNA of different animals and work out how they … Continue reading

What Happens When Humanity Reaches “Godhood”?

In the coming decades, we have a lot to look forward to… and perhaps in equal measure, plenty to be concerned about, too. As humanity moves ever-forward, we have as many questions about where we are headed as we do about where we have been. All too often people today, surrounded by the fruits of modernity, seem to forget that … Continue reading

Excavation In Siberia Reveals Fourth Fossil Clue To Mysterious Ancient Denisovan Humans

Three becomes four. The extraordinarily sparse fossil record of the Denisovans – an ancient form of human – has gained one more specimen: a tiny, worn tooth belonging to a young girl. It adds to evidence that the Denisovan population in what is now Siberia remained small for tens of thousands of years. The Denisovans are perhaps the most mysterious … Continue reading

Evolutionary Theory Questioned by Transposable Genetic Elements

Transposable elements just don’t make sense. These so-called “jumping genes” are segments of junk DNA that insert themselves at random in our genomes. That is the evolutionary interpretation of these genetic units, but how and why do they move about, and why don’t they wreak havoc on the genome? The answers to these questions, which have been emerging in recent … Continue reading

‘Mars One Colony Humans’ May Quickly Evolve in the Martian Environment, Biologist Claims

An evolutionary biologist has suggested that human colonists on Mars could go through rapid evolution, eventually becoming an entirely new human species. Scott Solomon, an evolutionary biologist with Rice University and the author of “Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution,” wrote on Nautilus that humans on Mars would be subjected to the “founder effect,” a phenomenon in … Continue reading
