Deep Green spawns Deep Gene and Deep Time to continue work toward a complete tree of life for the green plants

... at least eight times within flowering plants, and again when the seed evolved. It appears, from our initial work, that many of the genes involved in seed dessication tolerance are descendents of the early genes that were involved in vegetative dessication tolerance in the first place." These findings emph...

Rat study shows high-fat diet impairs concentration and memory
