Scientists reconstruct a 3.3 billion year old protein and discover an all new biochemical pathway critical to life and hiding in plain sight

We’re just starting to understand how evolution takes advantage of much more than mutations in our DNA.  Everything evolves, from the biochemical pathways to the cellular structures that support them.  Further, some of these structures are incredibly ancient, shared by all life, and still working today. The human body is constructed from four basic building… Continue reading Scientists reconstruct a 3.3 billion year old protein and discover an all new biochemical pathway critical to life and hiding in plain sight
