Scientists have identified how a single gene in honey bees separates the queens from the workers.
When it comes to biofuels, corn leads the all-important category of biomass yield. However, focusing solely on yield comes at a high price.
The home team holds the advantage over visitors – at least in the plant world. However, a mere handful of genetic adaptations could even the playing field.
