Researchers from America have tried to understand contribution of viruses to the change of species of plants and animals. This required to conduct a comprehensive study on the analysis of DNA of humans and other mammals.
There are two groups of genes. One group once exposed to the virus code, on the other. It turns out that the viral effects of the genes are on average three times faster than other DNA regions. Just because scientists call the virus the main engine of evolution.
According to the study, up to 30% of the metamorphoses of all living organisms has occurred due to viruses. Almost all systems of the human body formed viruses, scientists say.
Now planned for the next phase of the study to better understand the issues of evolution and the formation of mammals.
