Research shows nice pigs like bad boars

When it comes to researching the history behind how some animals became domesticated, scientists agree that the easiest way would be to travel back in time. Since this option is far from a reality, however, scientists are left to the next best thing—studying animal’s genetics.

That was exactly the focus of recently conducted research involving […]

Research shows genomics can match plant variety to climate stresses

A new study has shown that genomic signatures of adaptation in crop plants can help predict how crop varieties respond to stress from their environments. Led by a Kansas State University research team, this is the first study to document that genomic signatures of adaptation can help identify plants that will do well under certain […]
