An initiative by a major biomimetics lab to prepare students for careers in STEM introduces them to biological coding.
Researchers at Radboud University in the Netherlands made “a remarkable discovery” about a protein named Polycomb that binds to DNA.
The serendipity is deafening.
The key lies in a triple-layered structure and a protein called osteopontin.
Early geneticists missed a lot when they looked at DNA only for its coding function.
