Wait, I thought evolution was an interminably slow process requiring millions of years to make any noticeable difference? Apparently not if you're yeast. A research team has just announce that it's figured out how to evolve a single-celled organism into a multicellular animal just like a freakin' Pokemon.
Simple -- evolution of course. But new research now suggests that the reason humans and apes don’t look alike in the face is down to facial expressions. We have plain faces, without varying colour and with less hair poking out everywhere, because it helps us track the complex facial contortions we use for communication.
Do you prefer to run in packs or operate as a loner? Your answer is determined by your genes, a new study claims. It's a big shift in social behavior theory, since scientists previously thought the environment determined social behaviour.
