I don’t know what this means but “New discovery shows human cells can write RNA sequences into DNA” is worth looking into/Phys.org


We already knew that under certain conditions (including infection with HIV, which contains a reverse transcriptase) cells could “write” RNA into DNA.  But I didn’t think it happened that often.

However, according to this paper, a DNA polymerase that is normally present in mammalian cells has this ability too.

If so, it could really put a dent into the injection of mRNA into humans.  Stay tuned.
