Science Enthusiasts Club: What Is Junk DNA?
April 14, 2019 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am
For this special 9:45 Forum, join Rich Feldenberg of the Ethical Society’s Science Enthusiasts Club to explore “Junk DNA.” Only 2% of our DNA codes for proteins; of the remaining 98%, some helps regulate gene activation, but a lot has no known function and is sometimes referred to as junk DNA. Learn how our genome has, over evolutionary time, held onto useless non-functional genes and DNA remnants of ancient viral attacks.
