The main achievements and failures of science in 2018 are published


Researches in the field of genetics got both to scientific achievements, and to failures of year. The authoritative scientific magazine Science published the list of the main achievements of year in the field of science. In total in a short list of "breaks of year" of 10 scientific works and opening. The main achievements of science of 2018, according to the editorial the magazine, are: researches of development of genes of embryos - it is possible to monitor process at the cellular level. In the future the technology will allow to control development of separate cages of embryos; identification of a meteoric crater in Greenland which diameter reaches 31 km - it could be formed 13,000 years ago, and now disappears under ice kilometer; the bone of the girl of Neanderthal-denisovsky origin is found - it is the first proof that this two types of people skhreshchivatsya; disclosure of a series of murders of 40-year by means of DNA. Loaded DNA from the crime scene into the database and found distant relatives of the criminal. The police traced several large family trees and contacted the murderer. Science also allocated three main scientific failures of year: global warming which problem only amplifies in recent years; the fire in the National museum in Brazil in which more than 20 million exhibits were destroyed many of which had no analogs; researches of the Chinese scientists on genetic modification of the person to which there were many questions of ethical character. In November the Chinese geneticist He of Jiankui said that it managed to change the DNA code of twin girls in such a way that they became unreceptive to HIV. The scientist claims that he edited embryos for seven couples, but only one case came to the end with pregnancy and childbirth. The names of parents, their place of stay and other facts confirming the words of the scientist are not known yet. And the materials provided to them do not give the chance to claim that intervention of the scientist did not do harm. In China the cloning of the person is forbidden, but there is no direct ban on genetic changes of embryos. Also the scientist officially reported to the state about the research, but made it later, than began an experiment. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
