For the past decade, scientists have been working on the assumption that 20,000 genes, less than 2 percent of the total genome, underpin human biology. But a massive international project called ENCODE has just revealed that plenty of the remaining 98 percent, once tossed aside as "junk DNA", is in fact incredibly…
What is ENCODE? "ENCODE is vast," writes science writer Ed Yong towards the end of this massively comprehensive (albeit characteristically lucid) introduction to this ambitious international genome project; and that it is.
The thing about data encryption is that it's basically a flashing neon sign indicating "SENSITIVE DATA HERE!" A new technique lets you secure your data by customizing the way that data is fragmented across your drive.
