Finding Curative Potential Within a Gene Mutation

Michigan Medicine researchers discuss their recent study examining the healing properties of paralog genes, or "twin" genes that evolved from a single gene. Because of their shared history, one paralog gene may be used to alter the faulty copies of its twin.
