Nature is a master at constructing biological machines and circuits, including the ones that maintain the body's internal clock, copy genes or help cells move. Now human engineers are learning to design and synthesize novel biochemical devices such as ...

Land plants arose earlier than thought—and may have had a bigger impact on the evolution of animals - Science Magazine


Science Magazine
Some scientists have tried to use plant genetic data as "molecular clocks"—knowing a typical mutation rate, they can estimate how long ago various species split based upon their differences in DNA-to figure out their evolutionary history. But they ...
