#3 Can Genetic Manipulations Slow The Aging Process? 9/15/14
Researchers may have found a gene that has the power to slow the aging process by targeting specific genes. A method to keep stem cells in their pluripotent state for longer was also discovered. Scientists have claim to idenitify the gene that causes Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy which is an incurable muscle-wasting disease. Feature genetists of the week are the duo James Watson and Francis Crick. Genetic disorder of the week is Down Syndrome.
