DNA sequencing is used in more and more applications like forensics and medicine. You might have heard about it in the news. In this article i will show you all the different technologies used to sequence a DNA molecule and how they differ. The field of genetics is becoming increasingly important and knowing enough about how it works is certainly a benefit.
That mysterious part is called lncRNAs. Those are Long, Non-Coding, RNA molecules, that are transcribed from your DNA but do not produce any proteins. They tend to just exist in the cell doing nothing. At least that's what we used to think. It's been a long time since we discovered that lncRNAs have a purpose… Continue reading A mysterious part of your genome is constantly expressed and affecting you.
