In ‘Enormous Success,’ Scientists Tie 52 Genes to Human Intelligence
Genetics figured out that it makes some people smarter than others. The DNA of intelligent people differs from others in fewer mutations! So there is no "intelligence gene", but heredity takes place. That's where the genetic scissors come in handy!

Meditation and yoga can 'reverse' DNA reactions which cause stress
Mind-body interventions (MBIs) such as meditation, yoga and Tai Chi don't simply relax us; they can 'reverse' the molecular reactions in our DNA which cause ill-health and depression, according to a study.

Researchers Have Traced The Genes For Antibiotic Resistance Back to Their Source
New research from The Novo Nordisk Foundation Centre for Biosustainability in Denmark has for the first time provided evidence to back up what biologists have long suspected – the resistance genes come from the same source as the antibiotics themselves.
