Transitions Studies in Flowering Plants

SARS-COVID-2


It is interesting to note that in this virus with only 30,000 RNA bases, the genomic variability is cyclical from almost none to a maximum value and drops to nearly no cost within a season. It will resume a similar activity in the next season or die out completely. Who knows for sure.


It is essential to know that when dealing with large biomolecules, one always encounters a whole range of dynamic patterns and very ordered energy-rich structures, and while ordered can remain in this situation as long as they do not decay. Such arrangements tend to explore the entire accessible physical space. They can actively develop.


 Now back to the roots again:






With this speed, populations of Diplacus aurantiacus are currently altering their floral traits in the so-called «hybridization zone».





 

How flowers on long-lived plants may morphologically change over 15 years [model presentation].







We are currently developing a molecular mechanistic idea of how this can be achieved in such a short time. [inbuilt evolutionary mechanism]
