Scientists Conclude That Octopus DNA Is NOT From This World!
A new study has led researchers to conclude that Octopuses have Alien DNA. Their genome shows a never-before-seen level of complexity with a staggering 33,000 protein-coding genes identified, more tha...
Scientists Are Finally Figuring Out Why You Only Get Mitochondrial DNA From Your Mum
Your relatives probably can’t stop talking about how much you look like your mum or your dad, but the truth is, while you might have gotten your dad’s eyes, you carry more of your mother’s genes than ...
momondo – The DNA Journey
It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think.
Ancient Viruses Hidden in Your DNA Fight Off New Viruses
Eight percent of human DNA comes from ancient viruses that once infected our ancestors. But there’s no need for alarm about the DNA of viral origin teeming inside your cells.

Historic Summit On Gene Editing And ‘Designer Babies’ Convenes In Washington
Hundreds of scientists, policymakers and the president's science adviser have gathered Tuesday in Washington for what will be a three-day summit on genetic engineering, with a focus on a new, relative...
RNA
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule. It is implicated in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes. DNA and RNA are nucleic acids, and, along with pr...
Nucleic acid sequence
A nucleic acid sequence is a succession of letters that indicate the order of nucleotides within a DNA (using GACT) or RNA (GACU) molecule. By convention, sequences are usually presented from the 5' e...
Nucleic acid analogues
Nucleic acid analogues are compounds which are analogous (structurally similar) to naturally occurring RNA and DNA, used in medicine and in molecular biology research.Nucleic acids are chains of nucle...
Haplogroup K1a1b1a (mtDNA)
In human mitochondrial genetics, Haplogroup K1a1b1a is a human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup. The K1a1b1a mitochondrial DNA haplogroup subclade is found in Ashkenazi Jews and other populations....
MICdb
MICdb (Microsatellites database) is a database of non-redundant microsatellites from prokaryotic genomes.
Sense strand
In genetics, a sense strand, or coding strand, is the segment of double-stranded DNA running from 5' to 3' that is complementary to the antisense strand of DNA, which runs from 3' to 5'. The sense str...
Prokaryotic DNA replication
DNA replication in prokaryotes is exemplified in E. coli. It is bi-directional and originates at a single origin of replication (OriC).
The initiation of DNA replication is mediated by DnaA, a pro...
