Scientists investigate the mechanism on how some invasive species, such as the green crab, had shown extensive dispersal in the last decade as they adapt across environmental gradients despite lacking genetic diversity.
Archaeologists have been in constant debate about what is the oldest known archaeological site. But experts and scholars recently identified three candidates that make Giza pyramids and Stonehenge seem young.
Resurrecting a woolly mammoth has long been in the crosshairs of geneticist George Church. Specifically, in 2017, his Harvard University laboratory was able to add 45 genes to the Asian elephant’s genome in an attempt to recreate the said species.
