Gene Discovered That Could Boost IQ by 6 Points: Image via Alex Mit We are still a long way from understanding exactly how the human body works, but each year (indeed, each day) brings us a little bit closer to unlocking the secrets of our biology.

Gene Discovered That Could Boost IQ by 6 Points:

Case in point, scientists recently discovered a gene that could boost IQ by as much as 6 points. That may not sound like too much as first (as 6 is kind of a small number), but this actually represents a significant increase in cognitive abilities. DNA. Genetics of Addiction. Genetics: the blueprint of health and disease The International HapMap Project has identified 3.1 million single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).

In some cases, these tiny differences in DNA sequence may increase susceptibility to, or confer resistance against, disease, (U.S. Worldtruth. Scientists have succeeded in creating the first organism with “alien” DNA.


In normal DNA, which can be found within the genes of every organism , the twin strands of the double helix are bonded together with four bases, known as T, G, A, and C. In this new organism, the researchers added two new bases, X and Y, creating a new form of DNA that (as far as we know) has never occurred after billions of years of evolution on Earth or elsewhere in the universe. Remarkably, the semi-synthetic alien organism continued to reproduce normally, preserving the new alien DNA during reproduction. In the future, this breakthrough should allow for the creation of highly customized organisms — bacteria, animals, humans — that behave in weird and wonderful ways that mundane four-base DNA would never allow.

In this new study, the Scripps scientists found a method of inserting a new base pair into the DNA of an e. coli bacterium. Source. Scientists Finally Admit There Is a Second, Secret DNA Code Which Controls Genes. The fascinating and recent discovery of a new, second DNA code further lends credence to what metaphysical scientists have been saying for millennia — the body speaks two different languages.

Scientists Finally Admit There Is a Second, Secret DNA Code Which Controls Genes

Since the genetic code was deciphered in the 1960s, researchers have assumed that it was used exclusively to write information about proteins. But biologists have suspected for years that some kind of epigenetic inheritance occurs at the cellular level. The different kinds of cells in our bodies provide an example. Skin cells and brain cells have different forms and functions, despite having exactly the same DNA. Intelligence™: Molecular Diagnostics Publications Analysis. Enal Razvi, Ph.D., conducted his doctoral work on viral immunology and subsequent to receiving his Ph.D. went on to the Rockefeller University in New York to serve as Aaron Diamond Post-doctoral fellow under Professor Ralph Steinman [Nobel Prize Winner in 2011 for his discovery of dendritic cells in the early-70s with Zanvil Cohn].

Subsequently, Dr. Razvi completed his research fellowship at Harvard Medical School. For the last two decades Dr. DNA Tests for Ethnicity & Genealogical DNA testing at AncestryDNA. DNA Test Kit. Click here for instructions on how to use your test kit.

DNA Test Kit

Watch a video on how to use our kit. The Family Tree DNA test kit consists of two cotton 'toothed' swab kits---designed for a single persons use. Each tube contains a fluid designed to arrest bacteria growth, so you can scrape your cheek and return your kit in any type of weather (hot or cold). The freshness of your sample will remain intact for months. Remember, a good scrape produces lots of DNA. Family Tree DNA - Genetic Genealogy Starts Here. Understanding a Genome Sequence - Genomes - NCBI Bookshelf. Evidence of Influence of Genomic DNA Sequence on Human X Chromosome Inactivation. Abstract A significant number of human X-linked genes escape X chromosome inactivation and are thus expressed from both the active and inactive X chromosomes.

Evidence of Influence of Genomic DNA Sequence on Human X Chromosome Inactivation

The basis for escape from inactivation and the potential role of the X chromosome primary DNA sequence in determining a gene's X inactivation status is unclear. Using a combination of the X chromosome sequence and a comprehensive X inactivation profile of more than 600 genes, two independent yet complementary approaches were used to systematically investigate the relationship between X inactivation and DNA sequence features.

The Human Microbiome Project - Department of Molecular Virology and Microbiology. In a healthy human adult, bacterial cells outnumber human cells, but the identity and degree of diversity of these bacteria in a single individual, their variability from person to person, and their role in disease and disease susceptibility has been largely unknown.

The goal of the Human Microbiome Project is to characterize the human microbiome and analyze its role in human health and disease. Statement on the Principled Conduct of Genetics Research.
