An "Evolutionary Relic" of the Genome Causes Cancer

0 Comments

Because pseudogenes have lost the ability to code for proteins they have have long been considered nothing more than “genomic junk.” Now, a team from the Cancer Research Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has discovered that one of these evolutionary relics caused an aggressive cancer, suggesting this “junk” may play a key role in disease.
