Research Says Success May be Genetic After all

Scientists claim a new genetic test can partially predict how much socio-economic success a person could attain. Long before Darwin published “On the Origin of Species” in 1859, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck defended his own idea in 1801...
Scientists Discovered why CRISPR Gene-Editing Fails to Work at Times

Scientists Find and Repair Flaw in CRISPR Gene-Editing

Researchers have finally found the reason why CRISPR gene-editing sometimes fails to work. To date, CRISPR gene-editing remains to be one of the most promising medical treatments currently being studied by researchers worldwide. However, it...
