13 genes changed in a mouse embryo system, influence the molecular machinery to yield human limb and thumb development patterns. The method used could be applied across the genome to understand at a molecular level what leads to differences between humans and non-human primates.
This work relates to transgenic genetic engineering and the possibility of altering humans to say get cheetah muscle for more speed or gorilla muscles and tendons for more strength.
68 Building block molecules basis for Cells
68 building blocks molecules provide the structural basis for the molecular choreography that constitutes the entire life of a cell. This work could be very useful for understanding the basis of disease and of cell function.
