The genetic code of “an entire nation” has effectively been deduced, say researchers in Iceland.

The feat was performed by combining DNA data with family trees.

The team say they could now find every woman at high-risk of breast cancer “at the touch of a button” and it would be “criminal” not to use the information.

Did you know? Free nucleotides are attracted to their complementary bases on each strand, joining up and forming two double helices identical to the first.

Did you know? This process takes place during interphase, just before mitosis, so that when the chromatids appear during prophase each daughter cell has a double helix of DNA.

Did you know? The prophase precedes the metaphase, which precedes the anaphase, which precedes the telophase.
