By looking at people's DNA, researchers can potentially predict whether a person can expect to live longer or die sooner than average, according to a study released on Tuesday by the University of Edinburgh.
While adding DNA sequencing to the screening of newborns for hundreds of potential genetic diseases may help accurately identify babies who will develop a disease, it could be too early to recommend for the general public, say researchers.
Iran’s envoy to the UN General Assembly rejected anti-Iran claims by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying the Israeli leader – whose actions are reminiscent of those by Daesh and Nazi elements – has lying in his DNA.
British scientists say they have pieced together what dinosaur DNA looks like. Researchers at the University of Kent say their work uncovers the genetic secret behind why dinosaurs came in such a variety of shapes and sizes.
How much is your DNA worth? As millions of people pay for home tests to check on ancestry or health risks, genetic data is becoming an increasingly valuable resource for drug makers, triggering a race to create a DNA marketplace.
Diatoms are tiny, unicellular creatures, inhabiting oceans, lakes, rivers, and soils. Through their respiration, they produce close to a quarter of the oxygen on Earth, nearly as much as the world's tropical forests. In addition to their ecological success across the planet, they have a number of remarkable properties.
