UC Riverside researchers have decoded a gene from a 20-million-year-old magnolia tree, obtaining the first direct evidence about the nature of life in that ancient era, a finding that may shed new light on evolution on Earth, they report today in the journal Nature. The oldest material decoded previously was only 7,000 years old. The new data provides the first precise measurement of the rate at which changes in DNA occur during evolution.
