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. 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.

  2. 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.
