The mammalian tree of life redefined: the genomic time machine traces 100 million years of evolution

New research redefines the mammalian tree of life

Researchers at Texas A&M University have used the largest mammalian genomics dataset to track the evolutionary history of mammals, concluding that mammalian diversification began before and accelerated after the extinction of the dinosaurs. This study, part of the Zoonomia project, could have a significant impact on human medicine and biodiversity conservation by helping to identify … Read more
