Dramatic evolution within human genome may have been caused by malaria parasite - Science Magazine


Science Magazine
That makes the mutation one of the swiftest, strongest changes to the human genome yet seen—though it remains a mystery why this particular disease sparked such a dramatic evolutionary response. The world's most widespread type of human malaria is ...
