Scientists Aim to Create DNA ‘Ark’ on Moon for Earth’s Repopulation, Media Says

So who gets to have their DNA ‘saved’… my guess is only the wealthy/privilaged. by Andrei Dergalin via Sputniknews Image credit: Pixabay The proposed “seed vault” would be established beneath the moon’s surface in a network of lava tubes. Having deemed that natural disasters, and perhaps the prospect of nuclear war in the future, pose a significant risk to our … Continue reading

Neanderthal Genes May Influence How Well You Fare with Covid-19, Studies Claim

Has Covid-19 floored you? Or did you only suffer mild symptoms? The answer to how your body responds to coronavirus could very well be influenced by the Neanderthal genes you carry, according to researchers in Germany. Svante Paabo and Hugo Zeberg of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, have been looking to the genes inherited from … Continue reading

The Pandemic that Lasted 15 Million Years

“In terms of DNA content, you are about 8 percent virus and 1 to 2 percent genes… you are more virus than you are genes” Our DNA holds evidence of a huge, ancient pandemic, one that touched many different species, spanned the globe, and lasted for more than 15 million years.

Nested ‘DNA’ of Ancestor that Mated with Ancient Humans Discovered

Stephanie Pappas Live Science Today’s humans carry the genes of an ancient, unknown ancestor, left there by hominin species intermingling perhaps a million years ago. The ancestor may have been Homo erectus, but no one knows for sure — the genome of that extinct species of human has never been sequenced, said Adam Siepel, a computational biologist at Cold Spring … Continue reading

DNA May Have Emerged on Earth as Early as 4 Billion Years Ago

DNA, the hereditary material, may have appeared on Earth earlier than has been assumed hitherto. LMU chemists led by Oliver Trapp show that a simple reaction pathway could have given rise to DNA subunits on the early Earth. How were the building-blocks of life first formed on the early Earth? As yet, only partially satisfactory answers to this question are … Continue reading

Collection of Unique Genes May Hold Answers to the Mysteries of our Evolution

Scientists have discovered an exciting collection of genes that are unique to humans and could hold the key to learning more about our species’ evolution. The find changes the previous understanding of DNA. Before now, these genes were thought to play similar roles across different organisms, but new computational analysis has found that they are actually human-specific. The exciting discovery … Continue reading

History of Giants on Record Explored by Author Hugh Newman

Everyone knows the first line of the English fairy tale, “Fee Fi Fo Fum.” But how many know the rest of the verse, which gets a little dark: “I smell the blood of an Englishman/ Be he alive, or be he dead/ I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.” What the hell kind of bedtime story is that? Actually, … Continue reading

Scientists Create Organism with Synthetic DNA

The live, lab-made microbe, which has a fully synthetic DNA code, is the first of its kind ever created. The breakthrough was made by researchers at the laboratory of molecular biology at Cambridge University who redesigned the DNA of E Coli – a commonly found strain of bacteria. The work involved making up to 18,000 edits to the genome, then … Continue reading

Study Names New Cradle of Human Civilisation

Having started with pearl millets last year, the same research group has continued their exciting journey of examining the roots of plant domestication on the African continent, but this time looking into the genomes of a wealth of wild and cultivated yams, an African staple vegetable. Having investigated the domestication of African yams, a key crop in early African agriculture … Continue reading

Scientists in China Made Rhesus Monkeys Smarter by Adding Human Gene

The 2011 film Rise of the Planet of the Apes begins with concerned scientists attempting to cure Alzheimer’s Disease with an experimental drug that they’re testing on chimpanzees. Naturally, things spiral out of control, eventually leading to a super-intelligent chimps, a pandemic, and two sequels that deal with the dystopia that follows. Given that film made $481.8 million at the … Continue reading
