What Happens When You Put Evolution On Replay? - Astrobiology Magazine


Astrobiology Magazine
A team of scientists from the University of Arizona have engineered an instant replay switch for evolution. The technique, known as ancestral gene resurrection, inserts ancient genes into modern E. coli bacteria. It gives researchers the opportunity to ...

Evolution constrains large-scale bioproduction - Phys.Org


Phys.Org
Bioengineers have long debated whether it was realistic for evolution to eliminate production of engineered production cells during the relatively short time courses of large industrial-scale production. According to a new study published in Nature ...
