In our chromosomes there are small disorders that generally do not affect us but that can be decisive for reproduction. This is the case for the so-called chromosomal inversions (a change in direction of a chromosomal fragment within the original chromosome). UAB researchers have studied these alterations and concluded that the larger a...

After being synthesized, the proteins fold themselves to acquire their function. Although this process, called oxidative folding, has been investigated extensively, some keys aspects have been neglected, like the thermodynamics or the computational prediction. UAB researchers disassembled this puzzle and its conclusions became a one single theory...

Why are hybrids not symmetrical?

Most animal species have two symmetrical halves. There are small differences that break this bilateral symmetry. Scientists at the UAB have studied how these differences come about and how organisms try to achieve perfect symmetry by crossing two species of insects, Drosophila madeirensis and...

UAB scientists have participated in a international cooperation project in order to study the phenomenon of the El Nio and its impact on surrounding vegetation. Investigators studied the relationship between the development of two species (pallida Prosopis and Prosopis chilensis) and the cycles of the El Nio (who has a very variable intensity)....
