Researchers at The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) in Norwich have unveiled a study on how wild rabbits were genetically transformed into their domestic cousins – and predicts a similar diversity of gene variants that occur in humans and triggers our personality traits. The results of the study are published in Science.
