Whitehead Study Supports Existence Of Ancient RNA World, Helps Provide Insight Into Early Evolution Of Life

. For decades, many researchers thought that ribonucleic acid, or RNA, was.nothing more than a molecular interpreter that helps translate DNA codes into.proteins. But research over the past 15 years, including studies at the.Whitehead Institute, has been lending credence to the notion of a so-called "RNA.world," an era in early evolution when all life forms were based on RNA. ....

Whitehead Study Establishes Role Of DNA Methylation In The Stability Of DNA, Suggests Possible Role Of Undermethylation In Cancer

. Scientists at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research have.established for the first time that DNA methylation, a chemical process by which.cells alter how genes are read without changing the basic text, may also be.responsible for maintaining the integrity of the genome, or in other words, for.ensuring that the 3 billion-letter DNA code is copied accurately when cells.divide....
