Chicken study reveals evolution can happen much faster than thought
New study of chickens overturns popular assumption that evolution is only visible over long time scales
Date:
October 27, 2015
Source:
University of Oxford
Summary:
Scientists found two mutations that had occurred in the mitochondrial genomes of the birds in only 50 years, showing a rate of evolution much higher than the widely accepted rate of change in the mitochondrial genome of about 2 percent per million years.
