Researchers acquired a dataset made up oof a gender/sex diverse group consisting of cisgender individua...

New artificial evolution research could finally prove Darwin was right

An international team of researchers may have just figured out why single-celled organisms such as the AIDS virus and cancer cells manage to be so incredibly successful.
