After a 23andMe DNA test, Northern California woman discovers 3 siblings

As a 33-year-old mother of two, Jaclyn Baxter took the mail-in DNA test primarily to learn about her genetic health risks. On a Sunday in March, she spit into a test tube and sent the sample to 23andMe, a genetic testing firm based in Mountain View, California. Show More Summary

Technique could make it easier to use mRNA to treat disease or deliver vaccines

By delivering strands of genetic material known as messenger RNA (mRNA) into cells, researchers can induce the cells to produce any protein encoded by the mRNA. This technique holds great potential for administering vaccines or treating diseases such as cancer, but achieving efficient delivery of mRNA has proven challenging.
