Complete human genome extracted from 6,000 year-old gum

Chewing gum is never easy to get rid of, and one piece of gum, estimated to be 5,700 years-old, has enabled scientists to map out the human genome of the person who chewed it and to gain an insight into their microbiome.

Funding shortage for synthesized human genome plan

The next-big thing in the world of biological science is an attempt to synthesize the human genome, or what’s being called the ‘Genome Project-write.’ This momentous challenge remains unfunded and it has raised some controversies.

Human migration — a study of our first road trip out of Africa

Three studies published in the journal Nature on Wednesday tackle the question of when did humans begin the great migration that led them out of Africa to populate the world.

Chinese scientists engineering human embryos defy ethics again?

For the second time in one year, a team of Chinese researchers engineered human embryos by altering their genome with partially successful results. The world's scientific community is concerned about potential ethical issues.

Undergrads create historic chromosone

Students at John Hopkins University created a particular yeast chromosome for the first time ever. The creation of chromosome 3 marks the first time we have created a singular gene in such a complex organism.

Op-Ed: Does 'junk' DNA really exist?

When James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the DNA structure in the 1950s, they triggered a science revolution. Their findings, contributed to the human genome sequencing completion in 2003. Today geneticists realize that there is no junk in DNA.

Op-Ed: Recent science discoveries confirm Neanderthal humanity

For many years, Neanderthal people were falsely portrayed as brutish and primitive ape-men, but with every new science discovery, anthropologists learn that Neanderthals were completely human.

New form of DNA discovered in humans

A new type of DNA has been discovered in human brain cells. The DNA, called 'microDNA', has implications of the scope of the human genome project and may offer new clues for research into genetic diseases.
