Comparative Oncology and Comparative Tumor Immunology

Comparative oncology is a branch of comparative pathology that is relatively new biomedical

A Look Into Natural Selection and its Mechanisms

The paper briefly introduces Darwin and his voyage aboard the HMS Beagle. Evolution, and its tool, natural selection, are discussed. Methods of natural selection, such as genetic drift and allopatric speciation are also discussed.

Failure of anti-tumor immunity inmammals - evolution of the hypothesis

Anti-tumor immunity failure in mammals can be defined as an immunoreproductive phenomenon, which is developed under the evolutionary pressure of autoimmunity and reproductive effectiveness.

Origin and evolution of viruses: EscapedDNA/RNA sequences as evolutionaryaccelerators and natural biological weapons

Knowledge of the origin and evolution of viruses could provide a better understanding of a number of phenomena in the field of evolution, such as the origin and development of multi-cellular organisms...

Tale of two snails reveals secrets about the biochemistry of evolution

Researchers in Spain are reporting deep new insights into how evolution changes the biochemistry of living things, helping them to adapt to new environments.

Analysis: Corucia ssp. Integrades

This question of subspecies integrades of monkey scincid Corucia zebrata will be discussed in this paper.

2 explosive evolutionary events shaped early history of multicellular life

Scientists have known for some time that most major groups of complex animals appeared in the fossils record during the Cambrian Explosion

Study discovers secret of Scottish sheep evolution

Researchers have discovered the secret of why dark sheep on a remote Scottish Island are mysteriously declining

Scientists' cell discovery unearths evolutionary clues

The full family tree of the species known as social amoebas has been plotted for the first time

Research discovers oldest bee, evolutionary link

Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered the oldest bee ever known

Pressured by predators, lizards see rapid shift in natural selection

Scientists found that natural selection dramatically changed direction over a very short time

Does natural selection drive the evolution of cancer?

Emerging field sees cancer as an evolutionary and ecological process

SENI Biometric Analysis on the extinct Scincidae species: Macroscincus coctei (underlined)

The SENI is a ratio based on anterior foot length at the junction of the

ulna/radius-carpal bones to the longest digit divided by the snout to vent

length {SVL} (B. Schnirel, 2003). It had been determined that a

relationship seemed to exist between

The facts of evolution: fighting the Endarkenment

Those of us who practice experimental science are living in the best of times and the worst of times, and I’m not talking about A Tale of Two Cities, but a tale of two cultures

Spatial mosaic evolution of snail defensive traits

The authors addressed certain questions concerning the evolution of defenses in Mexipyrgus.

Evolution and medicine: the long reach of "Dr. Darwin"

In this review the authors consider the new science of Darwinian medicine.

Chromatin structure and evolution in the human genome

Evolutionary rates are not constant across the human genome but genes in close proximity have been shown to experience similar levels of divergence and selection.

Evolution of male genitalia: environmental and genetic factors affect genital morphology in two Drosophila sibling species and their hybrids

In this work the authors investigated the patterns of intraspecific variation and interspecific divergence in male genitalic morphology (size and shape) in the cactophilic sibling species Drosophila buzzatii and D. koepferae.

Ancient ape ruled out of man's ancestral line

Ancient remains, once thought to be a key link in the evolution of mankind, have now been shown to be 400,000 years too young to be a part of man's family tree.
