Understanding how genes evolve and potential habitability of Gamma Leporis AB

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Stars - What is the potential habitability of the nearby star system Gamma Leporis AB? See article.
g Abodes - New research shows that the bow shock formed by the interactions between the solar wind and Earth's magnetic field is remarkably thin. See article.
g Life - By studying a virulent fungus, scientists have answered the question of why a single gene could come in different lengths in different individuals. It all comes down to “spliceosomal introns.” The study could have wider implications in understanding how genes evolve. See article.
