Dun stallions.

The dun coat pattern, believed to be ancestral in horses, appears to involve uneven distribution of a transcription factor encoded by TBX3.

ruff male morphs

Two studies have discovered a set of genes originating from a historical inversion that have evolved together to produce three very different groups of male ruffs.

The researchers said that if confirmed, their findings could be used to design better diagnostics and inform patient treatment.

Hints from living fish and ancient fossils reveal overlap between an enamel-like skin covering called ganoine and the enamel that covers tetrapod animals' teeth.

The present-day Basque population carries genetic patterns resembling those in Iberian farmers related to other early European farmer groups.

Up All Night

Researchers find that sleep loss leads to epigenetic changes affecting circadian clock genes.

finch

Researchers sequenced 120 finches from the Galápagos and Cocos Island to resolve bird phylogeny and explore the genetic basis of fast-evolving features.

The Uppsala University study recommends a targeted sequencing assay as a first-line test to diagnose primary immunodeficiency disorders.

The researchers are also developing the method in tandem with a more extensive pathogen profiling diagnostic platform from Swedish startup Q-linea.
