Why is it inevitable that evolution by mutations alone should be a common cause of evolutionary change in most natural populations? And do you expect mutation-driven evolution to be more common in ...
If a plant, say a ficus or a teak, as a sapling were exposed to radiation, and a tree of the same species were present at the same distance, which of the two would be more likely to mutate?
I am looking for molecular tech' which could give a transient gene silencing in plants. The objective is to not make transgenic plant, but use these tech' to silence gene of interest for a short time. ...
I'm trying to estimate the penetrance of a disease in a population given a rare spontaneous mutation that confers predisposition in an autosomal dominant manner. Given that the mutation is ...
How does TILLING (Targeting Induced Local Lesions in Genomes) work? What is needed to perform a TILLING experiment, and what kind of information can we get out of it?
