New Tool Pinpoints Genetic Sources Of Disease
Scientists have shown a connection between the “map” of genes in the genome and the “map” of reversible chemical changes to DNA, the epigenome.  Their finding could help disease trackers find patterns in those overlays that could offer clues to the causes of and possible treatments for complex genetic conditions.

Wait this is really fucking huge though. I’m no expert but in terms of virology, isn’t this one of the underlying mechanisms that makes most diseases and compromise of immune systems? They rewire the DNA’s chemical composition in order to take some control of it, which in turn compromises the immune system and purposely makes it less useful to humans but useful for a disease causing virus. If I got it wrong please let me know. Either way this is an awesome discovery!

"Everything we feared about communism - that we would lose our houses and savings and be forced to labor eternally for meager wages with no voice in the system - has come true under capitalism."

"We’ll just start walking today and see the world and the way the world walks around and talks, the way it really looks. I want to see everything now. And while none of it will be me when it goes in, after a while it’ll all gather together inside and it’ll be me. Look at the world out there, my God, my God, look at it out there, outside me, out there beyond my face and the only way to really touch it is to put it where it’s finally me, where it’s in the blood, where it pumps around a thousand times ten thousand a day. I get hold of it so it’ll never run off. I’ll hold on to the world tight some day. I’ve got one finger on it now; that’s a beginning."
