+ - The Incredible Shrinking Genome-> 2

Submitted by Shipud
Shipud (685171) writes "Mammalian genomes have been shrinking for about 65 million years, since the dinosaur extinction. Why? And why were mammalian genomes 3 times larger than they are today before the dinosaurs went extinct? A new article in Genome Biology and Evolution tries to explain this bizarre finding, and why the genomes of mammals (but not of other living groups) are still shrinking."
