Our learning abilities depend both on genetics and environment. Most abilities run in families but the complex system of genes affecting these abilities is largely unknown. However, scientists from University of Oxford and King's College London have shown a link between mathematical and learning abilities of a child.
Scientists have long wondered how transition from sea to land caused the ancestral organisms to adapt to environment on land.
Psychologists believe that every relation in a person's life is the reflection of his/her very first relation, the parent-child relation.
What makes us “us”? What is responsible for producing startling inherited resemblances between the members of a family as well as distinctive variations in different generations? Why are identical twins so ‘identical’?
New study on the evolution of butterflies turns out that there's more in the process than meets the eye as it can explain a lot about evolution of other species as well.
Researchers are bringing genetic engineering to rescue animals from extinction. It is estimated that 15 to 40 percent of living species will be eventually extinct due to climate change, habitat loss and other consequences of human behavior BY 2050.
Researchers discover cancers are mostly caused by normal biological processes.
