Experimental evidence for evolution

... force maintained anisogamy . Here, we empirically test this prediction directly by using selective breeding to generate controlled and independent variance in sperm size and number traits in the cricket Gryllus bimaculatus. We find that sperm size and number are male specific and vary independently ...

... of the host cell by binary division, similar to bacteria. There are several problems with it. For example the mitochondria’s genetic code is at variance with the standard DNA code. The codon UGA is a stop codon in the standard code, but encodes for Tryptophan in mitochondria. ( I have covered ...
