The new map also contains some surprises.So, the researchers found that on average, each of us cause 250 to 300 genetic changes that a gene may not function properly, which confirms 180 people. None of us has a ‘perfect’genome. Another surprise was that each person carries 50 to 100 genetic variations that associated associated with a genetic disease.

The new study, which looks in the October issue of the American Journal of Public Health, mortality from colorectal cancer according to U.S. Mortality Data files submitted between 1960 and 2005. The researchers also Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results data is used step step – specific survival. 2.7 years. Women had a 54 % reduction in deaths during the 40 – year period, black women saw only a 14 % reduction.

This method allowed the scientists to demonstrate the effects of skeletal muscle and investigate the reasons for the connection to the Merg1a Protein The Merg1a protein. Is a channel that normally leads a small electrical current through the cell. Researchers implanted a gene into the skeletal muscles , which in a mutated form of this protein, which combined with the normal protein and stops found the actual result, the the mutant the mutant protein would atrophy in mice, inhibiting their ability to use their hind legs was limited.
