New Video Shows the Boggling Amount of Code in Your Body

Illustra's new short film, "18 Trillion Feet of You," shows how DNA is packed into the 3 trillion nucleated cells, and how far all of it would reach.

Cells Model Sustainable Lifestyles

They renew. They recycle. They clean up their messes. We could learn things from cells. Cell division: cleaning the nucleus without detergents (Austrian Institute of Molecular Biotechnology). Mitosis, or cell division, is a messy process. All of a sudden, when the nuclear membrane disassembles, genes that had been isolated from the cytoplasm mix with it. […]

Origin of the Ribosome Baffles Evolutionists
