Washington scientists are in a stage of progress to emerge a new technology that allows them to read and interpret the human genome, which can become of great help in the creation of new drug targets for the treatment of many genetic diseases.
Researchers at the Gladstone Institutes in the United States observed fragments of DNA called antisense enhancers.
Enhancers act as an instruction manual for a gene, dictating when and where a gene is activated. Genes can be separated from their enhancers for long stretches of DNA containing many genes. This will help them to interpret human genome easily.
