Newswise: Study Shows Evolution Turns Genes Back On to Regain Function

Study Shows Evolution Turns Genes Back On to Regain Function

Stony Brook University

Genes often mutate and lose their function over long-term evolution, which could be good if that stops drug resistance or cancer. A study by Stony Brook University researchers, published online in PNAS, shows that evolution can exploit positive feedback (PF) within cells to restore gene function.

New Geologic Modeling Method Explains Collapse of Ancient Mountains in American West

Stony Brook University

By using the latest computer technologies, combined with geologic data, researchers at Stony Brook University have developed a geodynamic model that explains the forces behind the collapse of what were lofty mountains some 30 million years ago in what is now part of the American West.

Ancient Molecules from the Sea Burst Into the Air From Ocean Waves

Stony Brook University

When waves crash in the ocean, they inject tiny particles into the air that carry organic molecules more than 5,000 years old. This discovery, published in Science Advances by a national team of scientists, helps to solve a long-standing mystery as to what happens to ancient marine molecules.
