    mikael writes “Sciencedaily.com is reporting that scientists have discovered how DNA is folded within the nucleus of a cell such that active genes remain accessible without becoming tangled.

The second location is a denser storage area where inactive genes are kept. The second observation is that all genes are (more…)
