Some DNA Dismissed As 'Junk' Is Crucial To Embryo Development - NPR


NPR
One of the enduring mysteries of biology is why so much of the DNA in our chromosomes appears to be simply junk. In fact, about half of the human genome consists of repetitive bits of DNA that cut ... LINE-1 seems to be essential in the earliest stages ...
