Dads genes dominate: study

We mostly use dad's genes, study finds

March 3, 2015 Credit: Thinkstock Brett Smith for redOrbit.com @ParkstBrett Some of us might look like mom, but we all mostly take after dad at least genetically speaking. A new study by a large team of American researchers has found that although we inherit our genetic makeup equally from both parents we use more DNA from our father than we do from our mother. Published in the journalNature Genetics,the study focused on genetic mutations that make us who we are and included all mammals in its scope. Continue reading

Human evolution questioned: 'Big brain gene found humans, not chimps'

Human evolution questioned: ‘Big brain gene found humans, not chimps’ A single gene may have paved the way for the rise of human intelligence by dramatically increasing the number of brain cells found in a key brain region. This gene seems to be uniquely human: It is found in modern-day humans, Neanderthals and another branch of extinct humans called Denisovans, but not in chimpanzees. By allowing the brain region called the neocortex to contain many more neurons, the tiny snippet of DNA may have laid the foundation for the human brain’s massive expansion. Continue reading

Gene making human brains bigger found

By inserting bits of human DNA into mice, scientists were able to make their brains develop more rapidly and ultimately grow bigger in the womb. The study, published in Current Biology, suggests that the evolution of this gene may be one of the things that sets us apart from our close relatives in the primate world. Continue reading
