Did you know...

Did you know that DNA and RNA nucleotide changes can have minor to drastic effects on a person? An article in Bioline's recently posted vol. 108 no. 1 issue of Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz ("Response to treatment in Brazilian patients with chronic hepatitis C is associated with a single-nucleotide polymorphism near the interleukin-28B gene") studies Brazilian patients who suffer from chronic hepatitis C.
