Tracing genes, biologists show lizard migration is traced to Florida
... program funded it. Another motivation to analyze
and observe the introduced populations was to see if the introduced species are having an impact on the Floridian ecosystem. It has been noted, Kolbe said, that Anolis sagrei will eat the small hatchlings of the Anolis carolinensis, the little gre...
'Gene chips' research in cotton could lead to superior variety

the genetic diversity of a species against the backdrop of environmental fluctuation within an evolutionary time frame. The past 3,000 years includes two periods marked by dramatic climate change--the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age--tha...
Identifying tick genes could halt disease, bioterrorism threat
..."Once we begin to collect the genome data, we will analyze
what the genes do and how they control tick behavior, including how they are able to spread disease," she said. Stephen Wikel is co-principal investigator on the project, which is funded by the NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disea...
