Scientists are beginning to understand mysterious parts of our DNA. Here’s what they’ve found so far.
Rapid Evolution Is Real…These Species Changed in Front of Our Eyes –
Inside the Mysterious Dark Matter of the Human Genome
“When scientists sequenced the human genome a decade ago, it was somewhat like looking at a blueprint in a foreign language — everything was marked in its proper location, but no one could tell what it all meant.”
Dark Dna: The Missing Matter At The Heart Of Nature
“The discovery that some animals thrive despite hugely mutated DNA hidden in their genome is forcing us to rethink some basics of evolution.”
‘Dark Matter’ Dna Influences Brain Development
“A puzzle posed by segments of ‘dark matter’ in genomes — long, winding strands of DNA with no obvious functions — has teased scientists for more than a decade. Now, a team has finally solved the riddle.”
Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
