New research suggests that there may be two other significant factors that natural systems weigh: the information-theoretic nature of the genetic code and the principle of maximum entropy
A new model of human evolution suggests that Homo sapiens arose from many closely related populations rather than from a single group
Scientists have published draft results from a comprehensive research effort underway to capture all human genetic variation
The study of genetics has progressed rapidly in recent decades. For example, just a few months ago, the first complete, gap-free sequencing of the human genome was announced. Now the researchers have gone ahead again and created the comprehensive functional map
