Positive selection on BMP3 gene, consistent with the rapid evolution of human skeletal system
Dong-Dong Wu
  Modern human populations exhibit substantial phenotypic variation as evidenced by body mass, height and craniofacial differences shaped by the skeletal system. The human skeletal system has evolved rapidly with the advent of agriculture and it is possible that these changes would have likely been accompanied by changes in selective pressures on the underlying genes, where adapt... more
A new species of Triplophysa from Yunnan, China
When the group of systematic evolution and biogeography in the Kunming Institute of Zoology examined the specimens of Triplophysa, the specimenscollected in April 2008 from Jianchuan in Dali Prefecture, Yunnan, China was recognized as a new species and named Triplophysa jianchuanensis. T. jianchuanensis can be distinguished from the other Triplophysa species by the following combination of char... more
Phylogeny of the Asian spiny frog tribe Paini (Family Dicroglossidae) sensu Dubois

  Scientists from Kunming Institute of Zoology (KIZ) and affiliates of Shenyang Normal University, Royal Ontario Museum, and the University of California, recently collaborated to investigate the phylogeny of the Asian spiny frog tribe Paini, Family Dicroglossidae.
  The anuran tribe Paini, is known in this group only from Asia. These aquatic and semi-aquatic species live mostly in swift, ... more
Distinctive Paleo-Indian Migration Routes from Beringia Marked by Two Rare mtDNA Haplogroups

  Kong Qingpeng, a Scientist of Kunming Institute of Zoology (KIZ), in collaboration across multiple institutions, recently published a manuscript on the migration of Native Americans through investigation of mitochondrial DNA.
  It is widely accepted that the ancestors of Native Americans arrived in the New World via Beringia approximately 10 to 30 thousand years ago (kya). However, the a... more
Investigation of the recently released Domestic Dog Genome

  Investigation of the recently released Domestic Dog Genome
  The recent release of the domestic dog genome provided Kunming Institute of Zoology (KIZ) scientist, Han Leng, with an ideal opportunity to collaborate with an American-based researcher and investigate dog-specific genomic features.
  In their study, they performed a systematic analysis of CpG islands (CGIs), which are often ... more
