Administering hormones affects DNA

In pigs, endocrine disruptors can alter gene expression in a way that also affects the next generation. This has been shown by a team of researchers from ETH Zurich and the Technical University of Munich. The study findings ...

Study: How life generates new forms

When organisms change during the course of evolution, often what drives new forms is not genes themselves, but gene regulation —what turns genes on and off. A new study identifies the kind of gene regulation most likely ...

Fishing can cause slowly reversible changes in gene expression

Cohort after cohort, fishing typically removes large fish from the population and can lead to rapid evolutionary changes in exploited fish populations. A new study from the University of Turku, Finland, shows that removing ...

Tweaking the transcriptome to tackle stress

Single-celled plankton known as dinoflagellates are shown to cope with stress using an unexpected strategy of editing their RNA rather than changing gene expression levels.

A step toward making crops drought tolerant

QUT researchers are part of an international consortium of researchers whose work hopes to future-proof crops against the impacts of global climate change.
