    In human cells, scientists find DNA that looks like a twisted knot instead of a double helix

    For the first time, scientists have detected a DNA structure inside living human cells that looks more like a four-stranded knot than the elegant double helix we learned about in school.

    The tangled shape, known as an i-motif, had been seen before in the lab, but few researchers expected it to occur in human cells.

    Maybe that's what's wrong with millennials. They're mutants!

    Cool, something new for the HDAc inhibitor crowd to target. I know the perfect guy to go after these.

    He probably already has a secret company working on it.

    Meta genomics is crazy business.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.
