Yesterday, PaV drew our attention to this story from Marlowe Hood at Phys.org:
Sweeping gene survey reveals new facets of evolution
Here’s another swatch from it, of interest:
“another unexpected finding from the study—species have very clear genetic boundaries, and there’s nothing much in between.
“If individuals are stars, then species are galaxies,” said Thaler. “They are compact clusters in the vastness of empty sequence space.” The absence of “in-between” species is something that also perplexed Darwin, he said.”
If this replicates, it will do for textbook Darwinism what the Cambrian explosion did.

Researchers: Cambrian explosion was not an explosion after all (It was just an intense detonation of complex new life… )
