Can We Live Longer? Physicist’s Breakthrough Discovery in Genetic Protective Layer

Researchers have discovered a new structure of telomeric DNA with the aid of physics and a tiny magnet. Telomeres are seen by many scientists as the key to living longer. They protect genes from damage but get a bit shorter each time a cell divides. Discovery of the new structure will improve our understanding of the building blocks in the body. And that in turn will ultimately help us study aging and diseases such as cancer and develop drugs to fight them. New structure was discovered using a combination of electron microscopy and molecular force spectroscopy.
