A team of scientists from Harvard and Yale have recorded the entire genome of the bacteria E. coli, and in a dramatic demonstration of the potential of rewriting an organism's genetic code, they have improved the bacterium's ability to resist viruses.
Several media reports popped up around the web over the past day or two saying Harvard Medical School genetics expert George Church was looking for an adventurous woman who could carry and give birth to a Neanderthal baby.
Surrogacy, the act of a woman carrying a child for another person or couple, is a fairly standard and accepted practice in this day and age – unless, of course, you’re being recruited to give birth to the first Neanderthal baby in more than 30,000 years. Then it gets a little unorthodox.
DNA, the building block of life, is now home to more than just the world’s living creatures. Scientists from Harvard report that they have written an entire novel in DNA, a feat that could revolutionize our ability to save data.
Editing the genome and rewriting the basic code of life might sound like something out of a science fiction novel, but research published recently in the journal Science describes how a team of experts from the US and Korea were able to do just that.
