Scientists have successfully sequenced the entire human Y chromosome, revealing critical genomic features. This groundbreaking research offers deep insights into human biology and potential medical advances. The new sequence reveals genomic factors in fertility, including sperm production.
Researchers from Tel Aviv University shed light on a 140-year-old mystery in an article published in Nature. The research shows for the first time how an abnormal number of chromosomes (aneploidy) - a unique feature of cancer cells that has been known to researchers for decades - can become a weak point of these cells. The research may in the future lead to the development of drugs that will take advantage of this weak point for targeted damage to cancer cells
