Program Will Include Paid Internship Program for Students WASHINGTON, March 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Justice Department today announced a new internship program that will employ students part-time to conduct intensive outreach efforts with Native Americans and their families whose work in the uranium industry during the Cold War benefited the United States but exposed them to radiation and may entitle them to compensation under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).
Researchers report that a single-stranded DNA-binding protein (SSB), once thought to be a static player among the many molecules that interact with DNA, actually moves back and forth along single-stranded DNA, gradually allowing other proteins to repair, recombine or replicate the strands.
The "sloppier copier" discovered by USC biologists is also the best sixth man in the DNA repair game, an article in the journal Nature shows.
