We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital Dialysis Unit. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..? http://justgiving.com/shanenaz

Read/write DNA?

Stewart Church has a vision. Not only does he want to read vast quantities of DNA using cheap testing methodologies, he wants to edit DNA in vivo and in vitro. To step into the DNA polymer and make it dance to our tune. To treat genetic disorders. To treat cancers, heart disease, inflammatory disease. To turn cells into therapeutic vehicles. Here's a link to the BBC article. This is the future. It may take a while coming, but it'll get here. The NEW New Genetics.
