Australians discover new DNA link

Australian researchers have identified DNA sequences linked to brain and bone tumours that have never before been analysed, according to an article in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology.

Using state-of-the-art whole genome sequencing, the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) scientists investigated the DNA of telomeres, identifying DNA sequences which may cause certain cancers.
