[Phys.org] Fix for 3-billion-year-old genetic error could dramatically improve genetic sequencing

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Quote:
For 3 billion years, one of the major carriers of information needed for life, RNA, has had a glitch that creates errors when making copies of genetic information. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a fix that allows RNA to accurately proofread for the first time. The new discovery, published June 23 in the journal Science, will increase precision in genetic research and could dramatically improve medicine based on a person's genetic makeup.

Using this they could potentially create retro viruses to delete genetic illnesses from our dna sequences.

Finally, perhaps a cure for Prader-Willi syndrome is on the horizon.

In theory, yes. In reality, all the fearmongering luddites, and pharmaceutical companies, will be sure to lock it away under the premise of unethicality. :/

well, when it concerns genetics, theres quite a bit of scare involved, so its not unusual for it to end up like that.

specially when theres a ton of mutant and zombie movies floating around.

It was about time to fix that bug!!!!
Now i cant wait for these new DLC for Human v1.1

They not going to release a patch when they can keep that daily subscription for beta testing drugs going.

Good when doing sequencing does not mean we would want to replace the original, viruses use the original error-prone method for a reason and it might have an important role we do not understand.

Though this and CRISPR are a good pairing. biggrin.gif

I'd be willing to be the test subject for that. What's the worse that happens, I stop living in chronic pain but my non existent children suffer the stigma of having too many toes? Obviously I jest... but... no actually not really. I'd totally do it.

Evolution needs to stop developing so slowly, or we'll have to keep releasing these community made patches wink.gif.
