  1. 1. Juanita Escobar Martínez Medicine Student “DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.” ― Bill Gates, The Road Ahead
  2. 2. DNA: genetic information. Importance of manipulating genes for new studies. Genetic Therapy. Complex structure: 3 components with 3 characteristics.
  3. 3. “New approach to identify genes poised to respond in asthma patients” Science Daily (July 8, 2014) “Genetic code is a divine writing.” ― Toba Beta, Betelgeuse Incident
  4. 4. “New approach to identify genes poised to respond in asthma patients” Genomic neighborhoods The division of the genome by regions, facilitates the gene production because we can have markers that reproduced one in his “neighborhood” instead of doing it in other parts of the genome, evitating some mutations.
  5. 5. “New approach to identify genes poised to respond in asthma patients” Protective memory cells In asthma is very important the inmunogenic cells because some of them has memory and with the gene manipulation you can inducce turning on an answer that you have done sometime.
  6. 6. “New approach to identify genes poised to respond in asthma patients” Asthma causes With the «neighborhoods» technique, there will be easier to find cells that carry the disease, in this case asthma. In the future, scientists could use this technique to find cures for other diseases.
  7. 7. Asthma disease This kind of findings are very important for the evolution of cell’s knowledge, because day by day scientist are clustering cell’s parts for watching how they interact for a possible cure for a disease.
  8. 8. “New technique maps life's effects on our DNA: Powerful single- cell technique to study environmental effects on DNA” Science Daily (July 20, 2014) “Volumes of history written in the ancient alphabet of G and C, A and T.” ― Sy Montgomery, Search for the Golden Moon Bear: Science and Adventure in Southeast Asia
  9. 9. “New technique maps life's effects on our DNA: Powerful single-cell technique to study environmental effects on DNA” DNA methylation We born with one specific genome but as we grow up, our genes get exposed to enviromental effects and that modifies it. Studying this changes is usefull for therapies.
  10. 10. “New technique maps life's effects on our DNA: Powerful single-cell technique to study environmental effects on DNA” Single cell study There are some markers that indicates where the epigenitc modification is, and amplifying it and reading it, we can localizate the damage and repair it. It will be usefull more tecnological equipement for facilitated this techniques.
  11. 11. “New technique maps life's effects on our DNA: Powerful single-cell technique to study environmental effects on DNA” DNA mapping This new techniques make us able to analize how the genes change with the pass of the years and conclude that this modifications occur in controled genes.
  12. 12. Cancer cells This new method improves the way of analizing epigenetic marks, because they use one specific cell that might be the one who will be the cause of a future disease.
  13. 13. “The greatest single achievement of nature to date was surely the invention of the molecule DNA.” ― Lewis Thomas.
  14. 14. “New approach to identify genes poised to respond in asthma patients” Nowadays, we don’t simply study genes, we modified it. This allows us having new targets for cure of diseases like cancer and asthma. However with the time, this kind of techniques will help us to find the therapy for other diseases. Making our genome more protective and giving us a better quality of life.
  15. 15. “New technique maps life's effects on our DNA: Powerful single-cell technique to study environmental effects on DNA” If we have this techniques that allow us localizate genome markers, we could repaired our genes and make cells more resistant to enviromental effects and cure genetical diseases since early development, so we could live more.
  16. 16. In the past, scientists searched for cures that came from outside of human body, now they realized that more effective ones come from inside us: our DNA it’s the best cure. Working with DNA, help us curing many diseases since the early development, like cancer or asthma, diseases that came from our parents: genetic diseases. But working with it, also help us curing diseases caused by the environment and bringing the opportunity to start a family, with fertility treatments. However, it is important to continue with the investigations about this discovery, so we can improve the cures and our quality of life.
