Adaptive evolution of hybrid bacteria by horizontal gene transfer [NEW RESULTS]
Adaptive evolution of hybrid bacteria by horizontal gene transfer [NEW RESULTS]: Horizontal gene transfer is an important factor in bacterial evolution that can act across species boundaries. Yet, we know little about rate and genomic targets of cross-lineage gene transfer, and about its effects on the recipient organism's physiology and fitness. Here, we address these questions in a parallel evolution experiment with two Bacillus subtilis lineages of 7% sequence divergence. We observe rapid evolution...

 Evolutionary Biology News -- ScienceDailyDNA may not be life's instruction book -- just a jumbled list of ingredientsThe common view of heredity is that all information passed down from one generation to the next is stored in an organism's DNA. But one research suggests this might not be so. In two new papers, he argues DNA is just the ingredient list, not the set of instructions used to build and maintain a living organism. The instructions, he says, are stored in the molecules that regulate a...

Cornelia de Lange syndrome: from molecular diagnosis to therapeutic approach: Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a severe genetic disorder characterised by multisystemic malformations. CdLS is due to pathogenetic variants in NIPBL, SMC1A, SMC3, RAD21 and HDAC8 genes which belong to the cohesin pathway. Cohesin plays a pivotal role in chromatid cohesion, gene expression, and DNA repair. In this review, we will discuss how perturbations in those biological processes contribute to CdLS phenotype and...
