Pagalapos : Alternate Way for Studying Evolution

*Summary of Chatshaala discussion on 20/12/2022 *

:sparkles:Started discussion with @Abhi0703 about the *Pagalapos story of rotifer *

:sparkles:What actually *Pagalapos *!?

:sparkles:Do *we all understood what evolution is * !!!

:sparkles:While studying Darwin theory of evolution ,we heard about Darwin finches .

:sparkles:For *understanding Darwin theory of evolution ,is it necessary to go to Galapagos *!!

:sparkles:Do we have a *alternate way to study the variation among individuals of species * !!
Yes we have …Pagalapos .

:sparkles:How can we introduce Pagalapos!?

Mainly in cities , Both sides of the *road have drainge system that is covered with manhole * .

:sparkles:Do this manhole cover have any *depressions that could be similar to Darwin’s island * !?
Galapagos is a group of island from where darwin locates his finches .
In pagalapos ,here *we Cubists also found our darwin finches that we called it as Rotifers * .

:sparkles:We also discussed about the Abstract that we wrote for ISEB Conference .

:sparkles:We also took a look into the continous light and dark experiment

Can we conclude anything there !!
Are we convinced about the results!!

:sparkles:Do *phyllanthus in Street light & in home garden will shows same sleep - wake cycle * !?

:sparkles:How *horizontal gene transfer in Whitefly is different from that of Rotifers *!?

:sparkles:In this picture we can see three depression ,these are our Pagalapos (Group of well )
Only rotifer can seen here !!!
Why we are stress on Rotifer !!
What is the significance of Horizontal gene transfer in rotifers !!!

Picture showing three depression having
2)Semi dry
3)Complete wet areas
What all organism *we can locate here * !!!

Reference shared during chatshaala discussion.

Bdelloid rotifers are microscopic animals that contain a higher proportion of horizontally transferred, non-metazoan genes in their genomes than typical of animals. It has been hypothesized that bdelloids incorporate foreign DNA when they repair their chromosomes following double-strand breaks caused by desiccation. HGT might thereby contribute to species divergence and adaptation, as in prokaryotes. If so, we expect that species should differ in their complement of foreign genes, rather than sharing the same set of foreign genes inherited from a common ancestor. Furthermore, there should be more foreign genes in species that desiccate more frequently.
