Synaptic flexibility between brain neurons seems to require mildly risky DNA surgery to work.

#neurons  #DNA  #synapses
Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered that neurons are risk takers: They use minor 'DNA surgeries' to toggle their activity levels all day, every day. Since these activity levels are important in learning, memory and brain disorders, the researchers think their finding will shed light on a range ...

          Are we at the dawn of human engineering?
China has been ordered to ‘rein in’ scientists who have edited the DNA of human embryos for the first time, a practice banned in Europe.
In a world’s first, researchers at the Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou confirmed they had engineered embryos to modify the gene responsible for the fatal blood disorder thalassaemia.
The team, led by Junjiu Huang attempted to head off fears of eugenics by claiming the embryos were ‘non-viable’ and could never had become babies.

Critics warned that China was becoming the ‘Wild West’ of genetic research

My caryotype shows the inv(12)(p11.2,q13) pericentric inversion. My brother and at least one of my children have it too. If you have it and are of Spanish descent, please get in contact with me, we might be related.

With one quick cheek swab, your DNA test results can reveal fascinating facts about the migration routes of your ancestors and highlight which population groups you are most similar to on genetically.
Call (816) 875-9301 to learn more about getting a DNA test in Kansas City, then see what to do with your results here!

#DNA Reveals Unknown Ancient #Migration Into #India
 
#DNA Reveals Unknown Ancient #Migration Into India - "DNA has shown that genetically modern humans arose in Africa some 150,000 years ago, and around 60,000 years ago left Africa and went east into Asia, north into Europe, and south into Australia. But new research from Genographic Project scientists in #India shows that eventually some of them also moved back west, and brought their language with them." #genetics #genes #history

I do not feel 37 percent German, as the result of the genera lab, I feel bad about it! some person says I look like German, neither I nor any of my house.
 Just because I do not teno credit card could not do genetic testing for a better company! No one wanted to lend me your credit card, and I have money to pay them!
 I'm not a marginal!

A Sunken Ship of the Desert at the River Danube in Tulln, Austria
"Rescue excavations recovered a skeleton that resurrect the contemporary dramatic history of Austria in the 17th century as troops besieged Vienna in the second Osmanic-Habsburg war. Unique for Central Europe is the evidence of a completely preserved #camel skeleton uncovered in a large refuse pit. The male individual of slender stature indicates a few but characteristic pathological changes revealing not a beast of burden but probably a valuable riding animal. Anatomical and morphometrical analyses suggest a hybrid confirmed by the ancient DNA analyses resulting in the presence of a dromedary in the maternal and a Bactrian camel in the paternal line."
