Increased Genetic Mutations in Children Can Be Traced Back to Mistakes in Father’s Sperm

[ad_1] Researchers have linked increased numbers of mutations in children to a higher rate of random mutations in sperm cells of the biological father, associated with chemotherapy or rare genetic defects in DNA repair. Scientists have traced the cause of increased numbers of mutations in children to a higher rate of random mutations in sperm […]

Genetic Mutations Across Animal Kingdom Shed New Light on Aging

[ad_1] Despite enormous disparities in longevity and body mass, new research has revealed that the number of genetic mutations acquired by 16 species is similar across their lifetimes. Quantity of mutations acquired is similar over the lifetime of 16 species, despite vast differences in lifespan and body mass. The first study to evaluate the accumulation […]
