Evolution Appears To Be A Start-Stop Affair




Some regions of the human genome have been hotspots for acquiring duplicated DNA sequences, but only at specific time-points during evolution. Researchers say that long periods of genomic stasis, in regard to the accretion of duplicated DNA fragments, are “punctuated” by relatively brief episodes of duplicative activity. The study, appearing in Genome Research, is the […]
