A team of scientists may have found a way to reverse aging. A protein has been dubbed as the master regulator of cellular aging.
In a new study, researchers found no evidence supporting the theory regarding the relationship between a woman's age and the connections in her chromosomes.
Apart form its long-known role of reversing the default state of being female, the Y chromosome also carries genes required for the general operation of the genome, according to two new studies.
The day is not very far when geneticists will be able to design a flawless set of human genes in a laboratory. In the related development, scientists have built a designer chromosome which they inserted into a cell.
A new study has challenged the notion that Y chromosomes are largely unimportant and will no longer exist in the next 5 million years. The study has based its findings on a comparison of Y chromosomes in eight African and eight European men.
Researchers reported that men who dealt with longer unemployment times were more likely to have accelerated aging.
