Biology Articles » Evolutionary Biology » Evo-Devo Biology
Evolutionary developmental biology, or Evo-Devo biology, is a science that compares the developmental processes of different organisms in order to identify the ancestral relationship between them, as well as how developmental processes evolved.
Researcher Traces Gene Development In "Last Common Link"; Two Genes Diverge From OneA researcher studying the last common link between invertebrate and vertebrate animals has found a key genetic change that separates the spineless from the backboned.
How Evolution Learns From Past Environments To Adapt To New EnvironmentsThe evolution of novel characteristics within organisms can be enhanced when environments change in a systematic manner
Darwin Was Right About How Evolution Can Affect Whole GroupWorker ants of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your fertility.
Cancer Signatures UncoveredA new systematic analysis of the relationship between the neoplastic and developmental transcriptome provides an outline of trends in cancer gene expression.
Autism And Schizophrenia Share Common Origin, Review SuggestsSchizophrenia and autism probably share a common origin, hypothesises Dutch researcher Annemie Ploeger following an extensive literature study.
Evolution Of Fins And Limbs Linked With That Of GillsThe genetic toolkit that animals use to build fins and limbs is the same genetic toolkit that controls the development of part of the gill skeleton in sharks, according to a new study.
Fishing for the Origins of Genome ComplexityBiologists at Georgia Tech have provided scientific support for a controversial hypothesis that has divided the fields of evolutionary genomics and evolutionary developmental biology, popularly known as evo devo, for two years.
USC scientists uncover secrets of feather formation'Jurassic Chicken' project may help studies of human development and evolution of dinosaurs
'Evo-devo' biology tackles evolutionary history's unanswered questionsThe recent marriage of evolutionary biology with developmental biology has resulted in the birth of a new field, evolutionary developmental biology, or "evo-devo."
Biologists call for better choice of model organisms in 'evo-devo'Research in evolutionary developmental biology, known as ‘evo-devo’, is being held back because the dominant model organisms used by scientists are unable to illustrate key questions about evolution
Origins of nervous system found in genes of sea spongeScientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara have discovered significant clues to the evolutionary origins of the nervous system by studying the genome of a sea sponge
Rare example of Darwinism seen in actionA research team, including UC Riverside biologists, has found experimental evidence that supports a controversial theory of genetic conflict in the reproduction of those animals that support their developing offspring through a placenta.
Evolution of genomic imprintingHow we come to express the genes of one parent over the other is now better understood through studying the platypus and marsupial wallaby
The difference between fish and humans: scientists answer century-old developmental questionEmbryologists at UCL have helped solve an evolutionary riddle that has been puzzling scientists for over a century.
Evo/Devo and the lungfish: the last gasp of intelligent designThe more advanced of the fishes, however, in order to survive in the stagnant waters of the continents, took to swallowing air and thus invented lungs and prepared the way for the evolution of the terrestrial vertebrates.
Evolution and Development: some insights from Evolutionary TheoryDevelopmental biology and evolutionary biology are both mature integrative disciplines which started in the 19th century and then followed parallel and independent scientific pathways.
The evolution of evo-devo biologyA report on the joint Spring meeting of the British Society of Developmental Biology and the Genetics Society, York, UK, 20-23 March 2002.
18th Century Reverend Enlightens Evolutionary BiologistsEvolutionary biologists are often interested in reconstructing how different genes evolved from each other.
