There are thirteen lucky people in the world and they do not know they are lucky. When they were born they inherited a mutated gene that causes fatal debilitating disease in infants. Except now these individuals are adults and may hold they key in their DNA to treat others less fortunate. This information was found through the genome sequencing of 600,000 and then found thirteen people with this disorder who are healthy.
This article is very interesting because they have used gene sequencing in a new light. They went through almost all the people who have had it done and found a select few who carry a specific gene which was never expressed. The data they collected could help save lives in the future with these healthy individuals who were fortunate enough to bypass the mutant gene.
