Natural antifreeze yields secrets

... the icy seas around the North Pole and Antarctica thrive in temperatures that would freeze most animals to death in minutes. Their secret: blood proteins that act as a natural antifreeze. Now researchers at the University of California, Davis, are closing in on just how those proteins work. The research c...

Scientists conduct first DNA field tests on Antarctic soil microbes

...ently conducted genetic tests of the bacteria that thrive in one of the driest, coldest places on Earth Antarcticas Dry Valleys.

Darwin's Time Machine: Scientists begin predicting evolution's next step

... Those organisms with mutations that allow them to thrive better than their cousins, tend to survive while the cousins die out. A classic example is to remove the gene that allows E. coli bacteria to digest lactose, but then give the colony of bacteria only lactose to eat. Of the millions in a colony, some...

Ambushing prey may make snakes vulnerable
