This week in Nature

Hey 420,

This week in Nature there were a few pieces that might pertain to our class material:

1.  A snapshot of some research on some single-letter mutations in the human genome that have been under selective pressure in the past 50,000 years, including mutations that seem to influence the immune system.

2.  Another snapshot of some research done on the decline in egg-cell quality and the ability to repair DNA as women age.

3.  One last snapshot of some research done on DNA-binding proteins.

4.  A bit of news on Gene sequencing technologies... making it cheaper and more practical to do sequencing more readily.
