White skin developed in Europe only as recently as 8,000 years ago ~ Based on 83 human samples from Holocene Europe as analyzed under the 1000 Genomes Project, we now know that for the majority of the time that humans have lived in Europe, the people had dark skin, and the genes signifying light skin only appear within the past 8,000 years. This recent and relatively quick process of natural selection suggests that the traits which spread rapidly were advantageous within that environment.

The Personal Genome Project was supposed to revolutionize medicine, but the results reveal how much we still have to learn. Carolyn Abraham looks at the risk of misleading results as DNA testing enters mainstream medicine

Human sequencing pioneer George Church wants to give you the power to sell your DNA on the blockchain  The blockchain is the buzziest thing on the internet these days and now MIT professor and godfather of the Human Genome Project George Church wants to put your genes on it. His new startup Nebula Genomics plans to sequence your genome for under $1000 (the current going rate of whole genome sequencing) and then add your data to the blockchain through the purchase of a Nebula Read More…

Cells are the fundamental working units of every living system. All the instructions needed to direct their activities are contained within the chemical DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). The DNA sequence is the particular side-by-side arrangement of bases along the DNA strand (e.g., ATTCCGGA). This order spells out the exact instructions required to create a particular organism with its own unique traits. The genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA. Genomes vary widely in size:

The human genome contains 3 billion chemical nucleotide bases (A, C, T, and G). The average gene consists of bases, but sizes vary greatly. The largest known human gene is dystrophin at million bases. The total number of genes is estimated at

Part of the Human Genome Project.  Use this website http://web.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/posters/chromosome/index.shtml to find the other chromosomes and other good stuff.

This is interesting to me because it shows the 246 base pairs of the human genome and the things that just one tiny strand of DNA can hold or carry like genetic diseases.
