Non coding DNA parts or Junk DNA

Non coding DNA parts or Junk DNA appears to be important in brain development & evolution

  • Lund University researchers compared the brain cells from humans and chimpanzees grown from the stem cells.
  • Chimpanzee is our closest living relative from the evolutionary point of view however researchers found that chimpanzees & humans use a part of their DNA in different ways, which plays a role in brain development,
  • The Non coding DNA or junk DNA is a repetitive DNA string that covers >98% of the entire DNA has long been thought to have no functions however the “protein-producing genes” coding DNA regions that count for <2%.
  • The new findings that the bases of the human brain’s evolution are genetic mechanisms that appear to be hidden in the overlooked 98 % of the DNA called “Non coding DNA or Junk DNA”
  • A surprising finding with the shift of paradigm!
