Mammalian Evolution: A Genetic Time Capsule Revealing the Origins of Human Diseases

Human Genetic Diseases Concept Art

Researchers from the UNC School of Medicine are using evolutionary genomics to understand human diseases. They focus on unchanged, highly constrained genes through mammalian evolution. This new insight allows the tracing of psychiatric and neurological disorders to changes in these genes. This could provide insights into various mental health conditions and potentially allow researchers to … Read more
