In a molecular analysis including the closely related spinner and striped dolphins, scientists concluded that the clymene dolphin is the product of natural hybridization, a process that is more common for plants, fishes and birds, but quite rare in mammals.
Regulatory hybridization is increasing through an intertwined process involving the breakdown of the separation between national and international domains of world society and a collapsing of the distinction between public and private spheres of society, according to Jurcys (law, Kyushu U.
Now a University of Michigan-led study of interbreeding between two species of modern-day howler monkeys in Mexico is shedding light on why it's so difficult to confirm instances of hybridization among primates -- including early humans -- by relying on fossil remains.
Given the utility of living primate models for understanding human evolution, the howler monkey study "suggests that the lack of strong evidence for hybridization in the fossil record does not negate the role it could have played in shaping early human lineage diversity," Kelaita said.
One is that the long hybridization probes used for MLPA need to be prepared via phage M13 cloning rather than through chemical synthesis of short DNA oligonucleotides.
