Article Title: Genomic evidence of rapid adaptation of invasive Burmese pythons in Florida Author: University of Texas at Arlington Publisher: ScienceDaily Publication Date: 19 October, 2018 https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181019191938.htm Researchers look to find out whether pythons survived extreme 2010 Florida freeze event. The data has been generated for a lot of samples before, and after, the freeze event. By studying different parts of the Burmese python genome, they found parts of the genome that changes quite a bit between the span of ten years. This proves that evolution can occur in such a short time. I think this is huge because, because if an invasive species can quickly adapt to its new environment so fast, then such species can rapidly throw entire ecosystems apart. This is scary because, if the Bull Frog turn to be rapidly adapting species, then all the native-to-Utah frogs stand no chance against them.
