Neanderthal Genes are Present in the Homo Sapien Genome?

Neanderthal Genes are Present in the Homo Sapien Genome?

According to a recent message delivered Wednesday by a team of researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder, modern-day Homo sapiens may resemble their most recent human relative, Homo neanderthalensis, more than they think. Although Homo neanderthalensis have long been established extinct, remnants of their genetic code still exist in the current Homo sapien genome. However, such […]

Scientists Create First Synthetic Chromosome

Scientists Create First Synthetic Chromosome

In a first, scientists have created a synthetic chromosome, advancing synthetic biology even further into the future. Scientists assembled the artificially-manufactured chromosome of a eukaryote, which was incorporated into a yeast cell. Thus, a life form that prospers and passes the genes down to its offspring has successfully supported the notion of “designer” genes. The […]
