A model for studying the genetics of Angelman syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes mental retardation and other symptoms in one out of 15,000 births, has been developed by biologists at The University of Texas at Austin.
Across Species, Genes Evolve to Minimize Protein Production Errors, Scientists from The University of Texas at Austin and Harvard Find
Genetic evolution is strongly shaped by genes' efforts to prevent or tolerate errors in the production of proteins, scientists at The University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University have found.
Two faculty members at The University of Texas at Austin have been elected fellows of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.
In the 1920s, J.T. Patterson, the chairman of the Department of Zoology at The University of Texas at Austin, wanted to push his school into the top ranks of genetic research. So he did what Texans do, he recruited a top player for his team. The recruit was Hermann J. Muller, a born-and-raised New Yorker… » Continue Reading
