As populist politiciansand the neocreationists who love themcontinue to challenge the teaching of evolution in public schools, scientists at the University of Chicago have found evidence that not only indicates that the human genome is a product of evolution, but also suggests it's actually still undergoing evolutionary change.

The researchers identified hundreds of areas of the human genome that appear to have been positively selected over the past 10,000 years but have not yet reached "fixation"the point where they are shared in the same form by all members of a population. The study, published in the online journal PLoS Biology, confirms that evolutionary mechanisms have continued to operate on humans in the relatively recent past.
