Current Genetics Update: Shedding light on DNA’s “dark matter” with Youreka Science

Florie Charles has created another wonderful video at Youreka Science, this time helping us understand: What is going on with the parts of our DNA sometimes referred to as “dark matter”? ¬†Florie uses her clear, concise teaching style to talk about DNA and skin cancer. Her video is a particularly great tool for those of us who are visual learners!

Be sure to check out her other videos, too!

Florie Charlies from Youreka Science:

Scientists are beginning to discover what is hidden in 99% of our DNA. And it turns out this new information may redefine the way we think of cancer development.  These scientists have discovered an important role for a protein involved in extending lifespan of mice and cells in driving cancer development.
