Biologists mull rapid, non-adaptive gene mutations

Scientists attempting to discover why some human genes evolved very rapidly believe that biased gene conversion (a non-adaptive evolutionary process) may be a significant factor, above and beyond Darwinian natural selection. Describing their results in the journal PLoS Biology, the Uppsala University researchers describe how they identified fast evolving human genes by comparing our genome […]
