So in the fire ant update, it says for big headed ants "Big headed ants (pheidole morisi) have a new genetic variant that is waiting to be awoken" what does this mean???
A ancestral supersoldier gene that was locked away from many species of Pheidole for millions of years ago. Including P. morrisii. There was also a guy by the name of "Ed Yong" managed to reactivate these supersoldier genes just to see what they do: Supersoldier ants created in the lab by reactivating ancestral genes (phys.org)
