Unlocking the genetics and evolution of the dog could prove beneficial for humans
...now that trade-offs are genetically controlled, or inheritable
in the fox. The fact that the fox and dog have similar trade-offs tells researchers that this type of genetic mechanism was present in a common ancestor that eventually gave rise to the modern canine family in which the fox is one extreme and the do...
UT Southwestern researchers define regions of human genes highly prone to mutation
...manifestation) and genotype (the internally coded, inheritable
information) is vital toward understanding and identifying indications of disease. "This discovery can be used to essentially define the likelihood of one gene to mutate relative to others as a function of both time and environment," said Monica M. ...
European scholars support development of germ line modification

genetic modification may already occur at a low level in somatic gene therapy trials, but neither society at large nor the scientific community sees this as a reason to stop these trials. B. The world's religious traditions generally support the ther...
