A paper illustrates the action of DNA loop extrusion processes, which serve multiple functions to maintain the genome, with an interesting graphic: gears.
Elaborate schemes to explain the origin of the genetic code from the laws of physics and chemistry miss the whole point about codes.
Science, the dominant way of knowing of our age, now finds itself caught between a rock and (very) hard place.
Researchers at Radboud University in the Netherlands made “a remarkable discovery” about a protein named Polycomb that binds to DNA.
Early geneticists missed a lot when they looked at DNA only for its coding function.
