Eukaryotic Organisms in Proterozoic Oceans
(Royal Society, The, 2006)
The geological record of protists begins well before the Ediacaran and Cambrian diversification of animals, but the antiquity of that history, its reliability as a chronicle of evolution and the causal inferences that can ...
Synergy and Discounting of Cooperation in Social Dilemmas
The emergence and maintenance of cooperation by natural selection is an enduring conundrum in evolutionary biology, which has been studied using a variety of game theoretical models inspired by different biological situations. ...
Burkholderia Xenovorans LB400 Harbors a Multi-Replicon, 9.73-Mbp Genome Shaped for Versatility
(National Academy of Sciences, 2006)
<i>Burkholderia xenovorans</i> LB400 (LB400), a well studied, effective polychlorinated biphenyl-degrader, has one of the two largest known bacterial genomes and is the first nonpathogenic <i>Burkholderia</i> isolate ...
High-Resolution Mutation Mapping Reveals Parallel Experimental Evolution in Yeast
(Public Library of Science, 2006)
Understanding the genetic basis of evolutionary adaptation is limited by our ability to efficiently identify the genomic locations of adaptive mutations. Here we describe a method that can quickly and precisely map the ...
On the origin and highly likely completeness of single-domain protein structures
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2006)
The size and origin of the protein fold universe is of fundamental and practical importance. Analyzing randomly generated, compact sticky homopolypeptide conformations constructed in generic simplified and all-atom protein ...
Intercontinental Community Convergence of Ecology and Morphology in Desert Lizards
(The Royal Society of London, 2006)
Evolutionary ecologists have long debated the extent to which communities in similar environments but different geographic regions exhibit convergence. On the one hand, if species' adaptations and community structure are ...
