Scientists uncover vast numbers of DNA ‘blind spots’ that may hide cancer-causing mistakes

14 noviembre 2014

More than 400 ‘blind spots’ in DNA have been discovered, which researchers say could hide cancer-causing gene faults. The researchers found hidden faults in areas that are tricky for gene-reading technology to decode. This technique, which unravels cancer’s genetic blueprint, is an important part of the research that scientists carry out to understand more about cancer’s biology.
