    Yesterday | PR.com

    If you could image a horse running a race at top speed 10 times the distance that our hero Secretariat did in the 1973 Belmont, and still break speed records, then you would have a good idea of the quality of our racehorse of the 1800s when heat racing was the standard performance test. Author Kathleen Kirsan shows us that the genetics of those supreme athletes is not lost and how to bring it back to our herds today.

  6. Gene mutation may be behind mysterious sibling deaths in eastern TurkeyRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday | Turkish Daily News

    A gene mutation has been detected in samples taken from a five-month-old baby girl of a family who saw three of their children die mysteriously in four months in the northeastern province of Kars, with several doctors saying this sort of mutation could lead to partial hearth enlargement, and thus immediate death. Samples taken from Gozde Guler, Zeynep and Hac Guler's five-month-old toddler who died on May 21, were sent to a laboratory in Europe, with their test results showing a gene mutation in her heart cells, one which could cause immediate death as it widened sections of the heart, said Ebru Marzioglu Ozdemir, a doctor from the medical genetics department of the training and research hospital in the eastern province of Erzurum.

    Tuesday | Genetics current issue

    The use of genetic polymorphism data to understand the dynamics of adaptation and identify the loci that are involved has become a major pursuit of modern evolutionary genetics. In addition to the classical "hard sweep" hitchhiking model, recent research has drawn attention to the fact that the dynamics of adaptation can play out in a variety of different ways, and that the specific signatures left behind in population genetic data may depend somewhat strongly on these dynamics.
