Researchers have performed a thorough evaluation of four different name recognition tools on popular 40 novels, including A Game of Thrones. Their analyses highlight types of names and texts that are particularly challenging for these tools to identify as well as solutions for mitigating this.
Based on an analysis of the genomes of more than a dozen flightless birds, including an extinct moa, a team led by Harvard researchers found that while different species show wide variety in the protein-coding portions of their genomes, they appear to turn to the same regulatory pathways when evolving flight loss.
The Arizona Museum of Natural History and Virginia Tech announce the discovery and publication of a mid-Cretaceous Period tyrannosaur that significantly contributes to understanding tyrannosaur evolution. The find is important because of the scarcity of mid-Cretaceous deposits worldwide. Fossils from such rare deposits offer unique insights into the ancestors of the mighty dinosaurs of the end-Cretaceous. The find is announced and described today in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution. Co-discoverer and lead author of!
