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.
