[Science Espresso] Xeno DNA

  • Sparks Science Espresso Vilnius

Since the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953, many have considered it to be the perfect chemical basis of life. However, the beginning of this century was marked with the creation of XNA - a synthetic analogue of DNA. This discovery demonstrated that a classic structure of DNA may not be the only molecule that is able to support the core of life in our universe. The creation of XNA also broadened disease’ treatment options in medicine. How is XNA different from DNA? What diseases can be treated with this technology? It sounds like science fiction, but is a complete truth!
Assure yourselves at SPARKS Science Espresso discussion on the 10th of October at PAVILJONAS.
