here you go JoeG, everything you always wanted for evolution.

"We were particularly excited about the actualization stage," Blount said. "The actual mutation involved is quite complex. It re-arranged part of the bacteria's DNA, making a new regulatory module that had not existed before. This new module causes the production of a protein that allows the bacteria to bring citrate into the cell when oxygen is present. That is a new trick for E. coli." The change was far from normal, Lenski said. "It wasn't a typical mutation at all, where just one base-pair, one letter, in the genome is changed," he said. "Instead, part of the genome was copied so that two chunks of DNA were stitched together in a new way. One chunk encoded a protein to get citrate into the cell, and the other chunk caused that protein to be expressed."
