Studying chromosomes: Mizzou Engineering develops 3D modeling tool

Studying chromosomes: Mizzou Engineering develops 3D modeling tool

Using data gathered from existing one-dimension sequences of the human genome, Jianlin Cheng and his team created an algorithm, or set of instructions, to develop their high-definition 3D model. Science has already allowed us to map the human genome – one of the biggest scientific achievements of our lifetimes. But to really take that achievement [...]
