DNA-Like Molecule to Aid Search for Alien Life 25 Feb 2019

DNA-Like Molecule to Aid Search for Alien Life

Scientists have synthesized a molecular system that, like DNA, can store and transmit information, possibly on other worlds, too. This unprecedented feat suggests there could be an alternative to DNA-based life, as we know it on Earth – a genetic system for life that may be possible on other worlds. This new molecular system, which […]

Researchers unlock thorny secrets of rose DNA

A new, detailed breakdown of the modern rose genome should help growers improve traits such as pest and drought resistance, and boost the vase life of cut stems, researchers said Monday. In a study published in Nature Genetics, a multinational team said a fastidious examination of rose DNA has allowed them to compile “one of […]

Artificial DNA Base Pair Expands Life’s Vocabulary 02 Dec 2017

Artificial DNA Base Pair Expands Life’s Vocabulary

Scientists have taken another step towards putting two additional letters in the dictionary of life to work. Researchers at the Scripps Institute have engineered cells to successfully transcribe a brand new artificial DNA base pair and make a never-before-seen protein with it. The breakthrough is part of an effort to expand the library of amino acids […]
