<< A research team at the University of Texas at Arlington (..) has been exploring the genomes of snakes and lizards to answer critical questions about these creatures' evolutionary history >>
<< For instance, how did they develop venom?
How do they regenerate their organs?
And how do evolutionarily-derived variations in genes lead to variations in how organisms look and function? >>
