Genetic variation is a term used to describe the variation in the DNA sequence in each of our genomes. Genetic variation is what makes us all unique, whether in terms of hair colour, skin colour or even the shape of our faces.
Researchers from the College of Pharmacy and Medical School working within the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, have partnered to identify genetic variations that may help signal which acute myeloid leukemia .
Evolution Simulation: "Beak" Lab with Cheap Materials
Organisms with favorable genetic variations will tend to survive and breed successfully, fueling evolution. In this lab activity, students will simulate evolution, which takes place over many years in one class period. They will observe how organisms with favorable genetic variations tend to survive and pass on traits to their offspring using materials you can acquire cheaply.
Plant Genetic Resources is an international journal which provides a forum for describing the application of novel genomic technologies, as well as their integration with established techniques, towards the understanding of the genetic variation captured in both in situ and ex situ collections of crop and non-crop plants; and for the airing of wider issues relevant to plant germplasm conservation and utilisation. http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayJournal?jid=PGR
