Genome Mapping Confirms Oldest Flowering Plant Is One of the Sexiest

Genome mapping confirms that the oldest living species of flowering plant is still, without a doubt, one of the sexiest, as well as hungriest, around. Don’t blame it on the rain — blame it on the Amborella trichopoda’s organelles and mitochondrial DNA. The Amborella trichopoda is a woody shrub with an ancient lineage. Its habitat […]

DNA Hidden Code Discovered by Genome Researchers

DNA Hidden Code Discovered by Genome Researchers

There is a second hidden code stowed away in our DNA, genome scientists have recently discovered. This secondary code stores informationĀ that affects the way the DNA instructions are read. This may helpĀ molecular geneticists understand how mutations are a factor in the diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases. Dr. John Stamatoyannopoulos, An associate professor of genome […]
