they have found that proteomics plays a huge role in how fast new evolutionary traits express themselves.

In a stable environment, the proteins responsible for maintaining a stable expression of genes are able to keep up with the system, under stress however this falls apart and all sorts of stuff happens. the shorter the reproductive cycle of an organism the sooner these modifications to their new gene expressions can show, but it can happen in just a few generations under the right conditions.
