Does DNA Have Telepathic Properties?
Science & Tech  (tags: discovery, science, DNA, telepathy, mystery, theory, unexplained behavior, genetics, genes )

- 1909 days ago -
DNA has been found to have a bizarre ability to put itself together, even at a distance, when according to known science it shouldn't be able to. Explanation: None, at least not yet.
Genetic Pathways for Brain & Pancreatic Cancer Mapped
Science & Tech  (tags: cancer, genetic research, pancreatic cancer, brain tumors, tumors, genes, medical research )

- 2050 days ago -
The most comprehensive study ever conducted on human tumors revealed 12 core pathways in pancreatic cancer & 3 core pathways in brain cancer that genes use to mutate into deadly tumors. But they also found that no human tumors are identical.

Science & Tech  (tags: genes, genetic variant, allele, vasopressin, men, marriage, biology, husbands )

- 2054 days ago -
Men - can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em. But an amazing discovery by the Karolinska Institute has shown a definitive link between a particular genetic variant that occurs in 2 out of 5 men and a man's ability to be a warm and loving partner.
The Human Genome: 8% Tells Story of Victories Over Viruses
Science & Tech  (tags: human genome, retrovirus, evolution, disease, virus, cancer, genes, fossils )

- 2055 days ago -
The remnants of conquered retroviruses from thousands of years ago live on in our genes. Human adaptation defeated them & helped us develop our immune system. Scientists are now examining these fossil viruses for clues to modern disease impact & control.

The Claim: Identical Twins Have Identical DNA
Science & Tech  (tags: DNA, research, twins, genes )

- 2226 days ago -
According to new research, though identical twins share very similar genes, identical they are not.
Early Birds, Night Owls: Blame Your Genes
Science & Tech  (tags: genes )

- 2228 days ago -
Scientists have found that body cells have their own alarm clocks and mirror waking habits of a person. The research suggests that those who hardly get out of bed in the morning can hold their genes liable.
Handheld DNA Detector

- 2229 days ago -
A researcher has taken a mathematical approach to a biological problem-how to design a portable DNA detector.He describes a mathematical simulation to show how a new type of nanoscale transistor might be coupled to a DNA sensor system.

Science & Tech  (tags: genes, fat climates )

- 2251 days ago -
CHICAGO (Reuters) - Genes that helped early humans adapt to cold climates may be driving metabolism-related diseases such as obesity or diabetes in many countries, U.S. researchers said on Thursday.
Protein Maintains Cross Talk Between Cells That Control Hair Growth
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, study, discovery, cell, dermal, follicle, genes, hair, molecular, papilla, protein, stem )

- 2253 days ago -
Hair follicles can't grow properly when a type of skin cell called dermal papilla lacks the receptor that binds BMP, a signaling molecule that, when present, instructs stem cells to trigger hair follicles into action and make hair.

- 2267 days ago -
Throughout history they have been the eyes that are prized. Frank Sinatra's were legendary, Paul Newman's melted a million hearts while Cameron Diaz's dazzle in modern Hollywood. But how - and why - blue eyes arose has always been something of a genetic

Fungus Sheds Light on Development of Human Genders
Science & Tech  (tags: science, genes, fetus, chromosome, fungas, protein )

- 2287 days ago -
One of the oldest known types of fungus contains a protein similar to the one encoded by the human Y chromosome, called SRY. When SRY is turned on, a developing fetus develops male characteristics.
