Very small marine organisms, such as plankton, are ideal for showing gradual evolutionary change. There are many billions of them, many with hard parts, and they conveniently fall directly to the seafloor after death, piling up in a continuous sequen...

All apes except humans have 24 pairs of chromosomes. We humans are the only apes to have 23 pairs. Evolution made a testable prediction; That somewhere in the human genome we should find evidence of chromosomal fusion. In other words, we should be ...

Humans and chimpanzees both carry inactive genes acquired from viruses. This occurs because some viruses insert a copy of their genome into the DNA of whichever species they infect. These are called retro-viruses... HIV is one such. Where such virus...

Genes code for proteins. That’s pretty much all they do (they have quite dull social lives, and don’t seem to have hobbies or outside interests). Those proteins are built up from amino acids. The genes comprise large numbers of base-pairs, which are...

All species carry ‘silenced’ genes… these are genes that once caused certain proteins to be produced, but now no longer function in the original manner. Such genes are called pseudogenes. Nearly all mammals have functional genes for expressing an en...
