    Experimental evolution for the recovery of growth loss due to genome reduction

    Kenya Hitomi, Yoichiro Ishii, Bei-Wen Ying
    Diversified genetic and transcriptional changes in parallel evolved Escherichia coli populations for improved growth revealed that the evolution complementing genome reduction was like all roads leading to Rome.

    Synthetic analysis of trophic diversity and evolution in Enantiornithes with new insights from Bohaiornithidae

    Case Vincent Miller, Jen A Bright ... Michael Pittman
    Enantiornithine birds reached similar dietary diversity to modern birds in a similar amount of time many millions of years earlier, but how exactly they did that requires further research.

    Stochastic parabolic growth promotes coexistence and a relaxed error threshold in RNA-like replicator populations

    Mátyás Paczkó, Eörs Szathmáry, András Szilágyi
    An individual-based model framework of sub-exponentially growing replicator systems suggests that parabolic dynamics could have been able to maintain genetic diversity and circumvent the error threshold problem during early evolution.
