Best of Genetics

My Favorites:

Humans are still evolving
Pregnant moms to start taking steroids

Best of the Rest:
The evolution of humanity is being investigated with the Genographic project and leading to genetic tests for ancestry.

The diversity of human genetics is being cataloged with Hapmap. A gene has been discovered that may be the key to brain development from chimps to humans. Stress impacts your genes.

I can't wait for the genetic tests of the future as scientists are now finding genetic influences for domestication, HIV resistance, depression, cocaine addiction, caffeine metabolism and nicotine addiction.
