From tissues and blood as well as distinctive physical features, like eye and hair color to temperament and so much more, genes are the coded instructions for building an entire person. But sometimes those instructions contain errors and genes can mutate to form many different things, including diseases.

UCI MIND: Anti-Racist, Anti-Violence, Anti-Hate

Por Comentario, MENTE UCI

Similarly, political and cultural barriers must be overcome to ensure racial justice,…
