An evolutionary race between rival elements within the genomes of primates drove the evolution of complex regulatory networks that orchestrate the activity of genes in every cell of our bodies, reveal new research.
The cells that control our rhythms of sleep and wakefulness may have first evolved in the ocean - hundreds of millions of years ago - in response to pressure to move away from the sun, shows a new study.
A new study shows that our ancient ancestors' ability to find new sources of groundwater during extremely dry periods in Africa millions of years ago may have been the key to their survival and the evolution of the human species.
A new study has revealed that the ability to find the new groundwater sources during extremely dry periods in Africa millions of years ago may have helped ancient ancestors to survive and evolve as species.

Know why life on earth stalled for more than a billion years after making the first appearance 2.3 billion years ago? It was because of massive oxygen fluctuations that brought a billion-year hiatus called "boring billion" in evolution.
Two recent studies have revealed that that the movement rate of plates carrying the Earth`s crust may not be constant over time, which provides a new explanation for the patterns observed in the speed of evolution and has implications for the interpretation of climate models.
