Evolution

Tendency of proteins to have their sequence/conformation/function altered over time as a result of genetic mutation. The natural mechanism by which new protein functions and variations are produced and selected

evolution

(Learning Modules / Biology / DNA / Glossary) The theory that all living things have been produced from simpler, more primitive ones by a series of gradual changes brought about by chance over immense periods of time.

Evolution

A process operating on populations that involves variation among individuals, traits being inheritable, and a level of fitness for individuals that is a function of the possessed traits. Over relatively long periods of time, the distribution of inheritable traits will tend to reflect the fitness that the traits convey to the individual; thus, evolu...

Evolution

Evolution: The continuing process of change, especially in reference to natural selection. Charles Darwin (1809-82) noted that successful species produce more offspring in each generation than are needed to replace the adults who die. Not all offspring survive. Some creatures or plants struggle to survive. Many things affect an individual's chances...
