Camel genome decoded

The following is an edited excerpt.

Researchers have sequenced the genome of a Bactrian camel named Mozart, laying down the foundation for future scientific work on these large desert mammals.

The previous lack of basic genetic data on camel species has hampered researchers like Burger from studying the animal’s genome. These genomes will also help scientists understand more about the evolution of the camel and its predecessors, such as how one recently discovered 3.5-million-year-old fossil may have played into its evolutionary family tree.
