Genetic Code Edits for Disease Soon Possible With Florescent Probing

What if it was possible for scientists to edit a person’s genetic code flawlessly, without consequence while curing one’s devastating disease? Dr Bruce Conklin, a lead researcher from the Gladstone Institutes in California, US has been trying to do just that. There are specific mutations that are altered in a person’s genome when they wind up […]

Genetic Code Has Double Meaning

Genetic Code Has Double Meaning

A team of researchers have made the discovery that the genetic code used by DNA to store information actually contains a double meaning, with the second set of coded information having major implications for how scientists read and interpret the instructions within it.  According to the authors of this study, this fascinating find could help […]
