For decades after the identification of the structure of DNA scientists focused only on genes the regions of the genome that contain codes for the production of proteins Other regions that make up percent of the human genome were dismissed as junk seuences that serve no purpose But researchers have recently discovered variations and modulations in this junk DNA that are involved with a number of intractable diseases Our increasing knowledge of junk DNA has led to inn.
