  • Genetically Modified Humans? Seven Reasons to Say “No”

    Researchers at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China published a paper on April 18, 2015, detailing the first use of the “gene editing” technology CRISPR in human embryos. The news initiated a global media firestorm about the irresponsibility of attempting to create genetically modified humans. more

  • Ötzi’s “non-human” DNA

    Ötzi’s human genome was decoded from a hip bone sample taken from the 5,300 year old mummy. However the tiny sample weighing no more than 0.1 g provides so much more information. A team of scientists from EURAC in Bolzano/Bozen together with colleagues from the University of Vienna successfully anal more

  • Male infertility: It's all about the package

    Infertility is generally thought of as a woman's problem. In fact, more than 3 million men across America also experience it.

  • The domain structure and distribution of Alu elements in long noncoding RNAs and mRNAs [ARTICLE]

    Approximately 75% of the human genome is transcribed and many of these spliced transcripts contain primate-specific Alu elements, the most abundant mobile element in the human genome. The majority of exonized Alu elements are located in long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and the untranslated regions of more
