genome: Researchers fully 'delete' HIV from human cells for the first time BY STEVE DENT @STEVETDENT JUL 22ND 2014 6:28AM So far, HIV has eluded a cure because it installs its genome into human DNA so insidiously that it's impossible for our immune system to clear it out. While current treatments are effective, a lifetime of toxic drugs are required to prevent its recurrence. But researchers from Temple University may have figured out a way to permanently excise it using a highly-engineered HIV "editor." Here's how it works: the team analyzed a part of our immune system that fights infection and built a "guide RNA" strand consisting of 20 nucleotides (RNA building blocks). Those strands were then injected into cells typically infected with HIV, like T-cells. There, they targeted the end parts of the virus's gene and snipped out all 9,709 nucleotides that made up its genome. Since the guide RNA strand contained no human DNA sequences, it left the host cell intact- but free from HIV lanque-hates-terfs: allthingshyper: gehayi: hiddlesbatchlove: forever-falling-forward: platredeparis: bnycolew: mannysiege: Progress What Imma just let this sit here MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE sources: Engagdget DailyTech CBS They turned RNA into an anti-virus program.

genome: Full DNA sequence of octopuses shows they're the closest things to aliens on Earth iheartchaos: After the first full genome sequences of octopuses, biologists have determined that the creatures are totally unlike any other animal on Earth, their genome shows a striking level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes identified, more than in a human. Iknew there was something up with those smart blobby creatures. You might know me as a man of optimistic intentions. So when I heard of an "As seen on TV" product that promised to be a car-scratch-removing marker, I was all like oh hecka yeah. So I buy this marker online and, even though I was optimistic, I knew better than to expect it to work on really noticeable scratches. So I drew the marker on several tiny scratches (hardly even noticeable) that were on my car door. I check the car door the next day in minor anticipation to see if when this fabled marker dried, it solved my car scratch problems and rid me of all evil and cleansed me of my sins BUT YA KNOW WHAT. NOT ONLY did this blasphemous marker fail to achieve my ALREADY LOW expectations by not even accomplishing the task it promised to be capable of. But it ALSO managed to attract tons of dust onto the scratches NOW MAKING THEM VERY NOTICEABLE. I WIPE THE SCRATCHES OFF BUT NOPE. IN A COUPLE HOURS THAT DUST WILL REFORM ONTO THE SCRATCHES AND LEAVE MY TRUCK LOOKING LIKE THE PIXAR CAR'S VERSION OF SCARFACE. THIS INFOMERCIAL DEMON PEN FUCKED ME IN THE ASS LIKE A BILLY MAYS TRADEMARKED DILDO. So when my online shopping app asks me if I want to rate this item, guess what I did 🙃 I BREWED THEM AN INSANE HEAPING TON OF ONE STAR REVIEW FASTER THAN YOU CAN SAY "HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?!?" AND I EVEN INCLUDED A PIC OF MY DEFORMED CAR DOOR AS VALIDATION. BECAUSE IF I HAVE TO LOOK AT MY ATROCITY ON WHEELS THAN SO SHOULD THEY. Worst 2 bucks I ever spent AldenRants
