Hello Insurance Companies
I have this sneaking suspicion that when my genome is sequenced, in the next ten years, I am not only going to be charged for some c-kit mutation I am harboring but also for extended regions of at repeats!
what is an at repeat you ask? You may know that the nucleotide cytosine binds to guanine and adenine to thymine. Well the Adenine-Thymine bond is significantly weaker than the CG association. It also turns out that these AT repeats are necessary to allow the insertion of the rna transcription complex.
