Exercise Changes How Genes Work

Exercise Changes How Genes Work | Bilingual News for Students | Scoop.it

A study of over 12,000 men and women reveals that a brisk daily walk can change how the DNA your mother and father gave you affects your body, particularly the 32 genes that have been linked to a person's body mass index, or BMI, a ratio of height and weight used to determine if someone is obese. After indexing how many variants of the weight-gain genes each person in the study had, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health concluded that "for every genetic variant, the effect on BMI was to increase it by 0.13 kg/m2."

Woolly Mammoth To Be Cloned By Korean Scientists

Woolly Mammoth To Be Cloned By Korean Scientists | Bilingual News for Students | Scoop.it

A Siberian woolly mammoth preserved in permafrost could walk the Earth again after 10,000 years, after Russian academics signed a deal with a controversial Korean scientist to clone the animal.

Hwang Woo-Suk of South Korea's Sooam Biotech Research Foundation -- who created the world’s first cloned dog, Snuppy, in 2005 -- will implant the nucleus from a mammoth cell into an elephant egg to create a mammoth embryo.

The embryo will then be implanted into an elephant’s womb. The Koreans say research could begin this year.
