Finding the OM in GenOMics

A recent climb in the number of people taking up a regular yoga or meditation practise has seen the terms “downward dog” and “tree pose” enter the everyday vocabulary of many. But what scientific evidence exists that supports the benefits of a regular yoga and meditation practise?

From the Cosmos to the Clinic: A New Type of DNA Is Created

A new form of synthetic DNA expands the information density of the genetic code, that likely preserves its capability for supporting life, according to a new study. By expanding the genetic alphabet from four letters to eight, researchers demonstrate the ability to double the information density in DNA.
