Scientists discover second, secret DNA code

Scientists have long believed that DNA tells the cells how to make proteins. But the discovery of a new, second DNA code Thursday suggests the body speaks two different languages.

The findings in the journal Science may have big implications for how medical experts use the genomes of patients to interpret and diagnose diseases, researchers said.

The newfound genetic code within deoxyribonucleic acid, the hereditary material that exists in nearly every cell of the body, was written right on top of the DNA code scientists had already cracked.

Rather than concerning itself with proteins, this one instructs the cells on how genes are controlled.

Hey Shadow. I knew a gene once she didn't like being controlled chuckle.gif

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Interesting article! I will have to research this further. As a physics enthusiast, my biology is not what it could be...

Some staggering implications. If I'm reading this right, then genes responsible for disease could be turned off in theory.
The mechanisms just need to be developed to do so.

I'm guessing such advantages could not be implemented within a natural birth, or a grown human, only in IVF babies and the like?

The way humanity is heading, natural birth may be a thing of the past soon anyway. I remember reading an article in New Scientist magazine about how babies grown outside the body could, over time, evolve much larger brains. Our heads can't really get much bigger without the whole female birthing routine evolving with it, they say.

We can sequence the entire human genome in three days with one machine now. The first time through took years.
