Jealous Nurse manipulates DNA results to cause divorce
Eventually, she married the man whom she fell in love with at the hospital. As a result, she had four children with the man while he was happily oblivious that he was sharing his life with a female serpent.
With this incident, people may possibly no longer accept DNA results without further scrutiny as the interest in the subject of DNA has increased in the last few years.
What is a DNA?
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is an organic chemical that contains genetic information and instructions for protein synthesis.
The chemical DNA was first discovered in 1869, but its role in genetic inheritance was not demonstrated until 1943. In 1953 James Watson and Francis Crick, aided by the work of biophysicists Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins, determined that the structure of DNA is a double-helix polymer, a spiral consisting of two DNA strands wound around each other.
The breakthrough led to significant advances in scientists’ understanding of DNA replication and hereditary control of cellular activities.
