Scientists in Sweden reported a nanoengineering innovation that offers hope for treatment of cancer, infections and other health problems —conductive wires of DNA enhanced with gold which could be used to electrically measure hundreds of biological processes simultaneously.
A new research has revealed that during the late Pleistocene epoch, some 20,000 years ago, the first group of Paleo-Indians with a distinct genetic makeup, now called Ancient Beringian, entered the present day Americas and persisted in Alaska for about the next thousands of years.
