A new study has found that a few simple genetic changes can make worms live much, much longer. Mankind has been obsessed with gaining immortality for thousands of years, but even despite the incredible advances in science and medicine achieved over the last few centuries, our species still remains just as vulnerable to the aging process as our ancestors were … Continue reading
A team of Greek and Spanish doctors announced Thursday the birth of a baby using DNA from three people after a controversial fertility treatment that has provoked intense ethical debate. The team used an egg from the infertile mother, the father’s sperm and another woman’s egg to conceive the baby boy, transferring genetic material with chromosomes from the mother to … Continue reading
The Romans may have given us impressive roads, plumbing and an entirely new calendar, but it was always thought that when they left Britain they took their DNA with them. Previous studies have shown that the legionnaires left little genetic legacy before returning to defend the Roman Empire from marauding barbarians in the 5th century. But new research could be … Continue reading
The human genome is one of the last frontiers of modern medical research. Recent developments in genetics have shown that scientists are now capable of some making some fairly radical alterations to DNA, leading to all sorts of strange genetic developments. Now that human genome editing trials have begun, the strangest developments are certainly still yet to come. Despite these … Continue reading
Christopher Busby exposes the fallacy behind the current accepted model of exposure hazard adopted by governments and the nuclear industry since the ‘50s and which he will be challenging in a major legal case in London in June on behalf of nuclear test veterans. This is one of the rare times that I publish someone else’s work to the IMVA. … Continue reading
MIT Scientists Use FIRST-EVER DNA Programming Language to Make Live Circuits out of Bacteria!! Soon Available on Web!
Anne Trafton | MIT News Office March 31, 2016 A programming language for living cells New language lets researchers design novel biological circuits. MIT biological engineers have created a programming language that allows them to rapidly design complex, DNA-encoded circuits that give new functions to living cells. Using this language, anyone can write a program for the function they want, … Continue reading
A theory on the origin of men was brought into light by researchers at the Royal Society in London. According to their theory on the origin of men,men were created by cross-breeding Neanderthals and Denisovans with predecessors of modern humans. This research also revealed that similar interbreeding between species is not such an uncommon occurrence. Scientists still have to identify one of … Continue reading
