“This virus has been working out. It’s gotten faster and more fit. And we need to fight smarter and harder to beat it.”
The new virus is defined by an unusual number and combination of mutations. One of these increases binding of the virus to receptors in our cells.

A comparison of the genomes of different strains of SARS-Cov-2 suggest the virus is the result of a recombination between two existing strains.
Today, it’s not longer “can we,” but rather, “should we” edit human embryos destined to be born?
Some genes are evolving rapidly. but we still don’t fully understand why fast evolution happens to some genes but not others.
Scammers are offering Medicare beneficiaries “free” genetic tests to obtain their Medicare information for identity theft or fraudulent billing purposes.
For about half of people with this condition will eventually progress to kidney failure.
Scores of older Americans who have been targeted in a scam that uses DNA tests to defraud Medicare or steal personal information.
It’s possible to take precancerous cells back in time, so to speak, to identify the genetic mutations that triggered their transformation.
A small clinical trial has shown that gene therapy can safely correct the immune systems of infants newly diagnosed with a rare, inherited disorder.
