Brown University The genomes of organisms from humans to corn are replete with "parasitic" strands of DNA that, when not suppressed, copy themselves and spread throughout the genome, potentially affecting health. Earlier this year Brown University researchers found that these "retrotransposable elements" were increasingly able to break free of the genome's control in cultures of human cells. Now in a new paper in the journal Aging, they show that RTEs are increasingly able to break free...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While we tend to equate youth with strength and old age with weakness, new research appearing in the journal Nature reveals that frailty during the later years of life is not a fixed law of nature, and that some species actually become stronger and less likely to die as they age. Experts from the University of Southern Denmark looked at the aging process in 46 vastly different types of creatures, including mammals, plants and...
