In April of this year in Mexico was born the child, the conception of which occurred with the mitochondrial DNA of a third person. The technique of the “three parents” is to transfer the mitochondrial DNA from a woman donor into the egg of the mother. As a result of these manipulations, the child will… Read more In Mexico, a unique child was born.
American scientists have managed to develop a mechanism to destroy GMOs (genetically modified organisms). The genetic code of the above organisms has been rewritten so that they could not reproduce without synthetic amino acids. As you know, GMO’s are used quite successfully in many countries for the production of drugs, biofuels and agricultural products. Scientists… Read more Americans developed methods of protection from GMOs.
Five years ago, a Scottish biologist Ian Wilmut world’s first cloned sheep, who became famous throughout the world as “Dolly”. Since then, cloned pigs, goats, cows and mice. The technique of cloning is that the genetic material of a mammal from the cells which you want to create a clone, put in the egg, and… Read more Cloning depends on the ethics
Scientists have figured out how nature gets rid of mutations in DNA, so they do not accumulate to a critical mass. The researchers said that every child has about 70 mutations, which are not his parents. At least 10% of them are harmful and will accumulate. In the end, this should lead to extinction. A… Read more Genetics explain why people still have not killed mutations in DNA
