While current treatments are effective, a lifetime of toxic drugs are required to prevent its recurrence. But researchers from Temple University may have figured out a way to permanently excise it using a highly-engineered HIV "editor." Here's how it works: the team analyzed a part of our immune system that fights infection and built a "guide RNA" strand consisting of 20 nucleotides (RNA building blocks). Those strands were then injected into cells typically infected with HIV, like T-cells. There, they targeted the end parts of the virus's gene and snipped out all 9,709 nucleotides that made up its genome. Since the guide RNA strand contained no human DNA sequences, it left the host cell intact- but free from HIV lanque-hates-terfs: allthingshyper: gehayi: hiddlesbatchlove: forever-falling-forward: platredeparis: bnycolew: mannysiege: Progress What Imma just let this sit here MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE sources: Engagdget DailyTech CBS They turned RNA into an anti-virus program.

Incredibly, this picture is not photoshopped. This type of cow is known as a Belgian Blue. The hyper-muscular physique is due to a condition known as 'double-muscling'. Double-muscling is the result of a mutation in the mysostatin gene of the animal, which leads to the absence of functional myostatin, the protein that inhibits muscle development. In the absence of functional mysotatin, the phenotype develops a condition known as hyplerplasia which is characterized by an excessive number of muscle fibers. While the animal demonstrating this trait is the result of genetic mutation and decades of selective breeding, it is not technically the result of 'genetic engineering' in the modern sense of the term (ie. manually adding new DNA to an organism's genome). cows belgianblue science gains 🐄💪: Incredibly, this picture is not photoshopped.

Tardigrades are commonly known as water bears or moss piglets. They are found in practically every habitat on Earth, from hot springs to beneath ice sheets, and are renowned for their toughness.  See More Tardigrade Videos Experiments have shown they can survive being frozen to nearly absolute zero and heated to 150 degrees Celsius. They have survived pressures of more than 6000 atmospheres, and have survived after prolonged exposure to the vacuum and radiation found in space.  In unfavorable conditions they can dehydrate to 1% of their normal water content and remain alive in stasis for over a decade. In more normal conditions, they prefer moist environments where they feed on algae and bacteria.  This tardigrade is often used as a model organism in biological research, and its genome is being sequenced. © Sinclair Stammers / Science Source @thesleepiestpsleepscientist BABYBOY he is SO fucking valid : toast-potent: postmakerextreme: biochemandstuff: sciencesourceimages: Video Clip SS218421 (Tardigrade Walking Through Algae) Tardigrade (Hypsibius dujardini) walking through algae, microscope view.

You might know me as a man of optimistic intentions. So when I heard of an "As seen on TV" product that promised to be a car-scratch-removing marker, I was all like oh hecka yeah. So I buy this marker online and, even though I was optimistic, I knew better than to expect it to work on really noticeable scratches. So I drew the marker on several tiny scratches (hardly even noticeable) that were on my car door. I check the car door the next day in minor anticipation to see if when this fabled marker dried, it solved my car scratch problems and rid me of all evil and cleansed me of my sins BUT YA KNOW WHAT. NOT ONLY did this blasphemous marker fail to achieve my ALREADY LOW expectations by not even accomplishing the task it promised to be capable of. But it ALSO managed to attract tons of dust onto the scratches NOW MAKING THEM VERY NOTICEABLE. I WIPE THE SCRATCHES OFF BUT NOPE. IN A COUPLE HOURS THAT DUST WILL REFORM ONTO THE SCRATCHES AND LEAVE MY TRUCK LOOKING LIKE THE PIXAR CAR'S VERSION OF SCARFACE. THIS INFOMERCIAL DEMON PEN FUCKED ME IN THE ASS LIKE A BILLY MAYS TRADEMARKED DILDO. So when my online shopping app asks me if I want to rate this item, guess what I did 🙃 I BREWED THEM AN INSANE HEAPING TON OF ONE STAR REVIEW FASTER THAN YOU CAN SAY "HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?!?" AND I EVEN INCLUDED A PIC OF MY DEFORMED CAR DOOR AS VALIDATION. BECAUSE IF I HAVE TO LOOK AT MY ATROCITY ON WHEELS THAN SO SHOULD THEY. Worst 2 bucks I ever spent AldenRants: Full DNA sequence of octopuses shows they're the closest things to aliens on Earth iheartchaos: After the first full genome sequences of octopuses, biologists have determined that the creatures are totally unlike any other animal on Earth, their genome shows a striking level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes identified, more than in a human.
