Leprosy genome tells story of human migrations, French researchers report in Science

...s of single nucleotides or "letters" at a specific spot in the genome. They found only three spots where useful SNPs occurred. "Finding so few SNPs is pretty unusual.

Atmosphere may cleanse itself better than previously thought

...sorb ?a portion that has been something of a blind spot for scientists, who often detect chemical reactions by perceiving the telltale light frequencies that certain reactions are known to emit or absorb. Many sources of OH radicals strongly absorb UV light, making them easily detectable. However, the wea...

Chimp genome reveals a retroviral invasion

...anscribed into DNA, and then reinserted into a new spot in the genome. Human endogenous retroviruses make up one class of these retroelements. Retroviruses can insinuate themselves into the host's DNA in either soma (nonreproductive cells) or the germline (sperm or egg). If the virus invades a nonreprodu...
