Genome Evolution: On the Road to Parasitism.

08:00 EDT 23rd March 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Genome Evolution: On the Road to Parasitism."

Roughly 1 billion people are infected with nematode parasites, but there is little understanding of the genomic changes that accompany the evolution of parasitism. A new study analyzes the genome of Caenorhabditis bovis, a nematode that may be evolving a parasitic lifestyle.

The interdisciplinary science that studies evolutionary biology, including the origin and evolution of the major elements required for life, their processing in the interstellar medium and in protostellar systems. This field also includes the study of chemical evolution and the subsequent interactions between evolving biota and planetary evolution as well as the field of biology that deals with the study of extraterrestrial life.

Evolution at the molecular level of DNA sequences and proteins. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)

The techniques used to produce molecules exhibiting properties that conform to the demands of the experimenter. These techniques combine methods of generating structural changes with methods of selection. They are also used to examine proposed mechanisms of evolution under in vitro selection conditions.
