An article by ECU biology professor Jinling Huang, with co-authors, appeared in the latest issue of the online publication Nature Communications.

According to a press release from the online journal, Huang’s research indicates that transfer of genes from one species to another helped moss species adapt to life on land. Horizontal gene transfer – from one species to another – may not be uncommon in land plants, the release said.

The article, “Widespread impact of horizontal gene transfer on plant colonization of land,” is available at  http://www.nature.com/ncomms/journal/v3/n10/full/ncomms2148.html.

  1. Delco will testify as the lawyer’s forensic expert for Finley.
    The next room is an area where Rapunzel paints all her murals.
    Also, for those who already have a wireless doorbell, you can even purchase add ons that provide more chimes or sounds.

  2. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.

    I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads
    very fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

  3. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

  4. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

  5. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community.
    Your web site provided us with valuable information to work on. You’ve
    done an impressive task and our entire neighborhood
    will likely be thankful to you.
