Happy DNA Day - 23andMe Blog
To mark another DNA Day, 23andMe decided this year to take a look back, not just of some milestones in modern genetic science, but also our own company’s
You Can Change Your DNA - HeartMath Institute
When we are born, the deoxyribonucleic acid/DNA in our bodies contains the blueprints for who we are and instructions for who we will become. For example, it can tell our eyes to eventually turn from blue at birth to hazel later on, our length to grow from 20 inches to 70 and direct a multitude …
Discovery of DNA Double Helix: Watson and Crick
The landmark ideas of Watson and Crick relied heavily on the work of other scientists. What did the duo actually discover?
The process of making a ribonucleic acid (RNA) copy of a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) molecule, called transcription, is necessary for all forms of life. The mechanisms involved in transcription are similar among organisms but can differ in detail, especially between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. There are several types of RNA molecules, and all are made through transcription. Of particular importance is messenger RNA, which is the form of RNA that will ultimately be translated into protein.
Epigenetic Changes in Cancer | The Scientist Magazine®
In cancer cells the epigenetic landscape is highly altered. Hypermethylation of certain stretches of DNA is the most well-studied epigenetic modification in cancer, and each tumor type has its own specific pattern. Histone modifications also occur, a

Topoisomerase loosen the strands for unwinding, while meanwhile Helicase unwinds DNA at the replication fork. Binding Proteins and RNA primase form complex that initiates translation. DNA polymerase attaches to the initiation complex and begins transcribing Okazaki fragments that than are joined by DNA ligase. RNA primase initiates transcription. DNA Polymerase on the lagging strand forms the Okasaki fragments.
