+ - Bacteria make major evolutionary shift in the lab->

Submitted by Auxbuss
Auxbuss (973326) writes "A major evolutionary innovation has unfurled right in front of researchers' eyes. It's the first time evolution has been caught in the act of making such a rare and complex new trait.

And because the species in question is a bacterium, scientists have been able to replay history to show how this evolutionary novelty grew from the accumulation of unpredictable, chance events."
