Since the announced completion of the human genome project in April 2003, the scientific community has been working to decipher the meaning of the approximately 24,000 genes in the human genome. In case you don’t remember from high school biology (or chemistry), genes are specific sets of DNA unique to every single organism, and the code contained in a person’s DNA is part of what makes them who they are, for better or for worse.

But when it comes to understanding the exact ways in which DNA differences define unique characteristics of a person at the cellular . . . → Read More: A Ladder to the Protein Moon
