What is Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an international body, which comprehensively assesses increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the worlds and passes that information on to policymakers through its reports. Why is it in news? Along with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, the IPCC has been awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to educate the public on the threat of global warming and for creating an informed consensus about its connection with human activities. When and why was it set up? The World Meteorological organisation (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) established the IPCC in 1988 to assess scientific and socio-economic information relevant to increasing our understanding about climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation. How does it function? It is an intergovernmental body that is open to all member countries of the UNEP and of WMO. The Panel meets in plenary sessions about once a y ...

Human Genome

The human genome is the genome of Homo sapiens, which is stored on 23 chromosome pairs. Twenty-two of these are autosomal chromosome pairs, while the remaining pair is sex-determining. The haploid human genome occupies a total of just over 3 billion DNA base pairs. The haploid human genome contains ca. 23,000 protein-coding genes, far fewer than had been expected before its sequencing. In fact, only about 1.5% of the genome codes for proteins, while the rest consists of non-coding RNA genes, regulatory sequences, introns, and (controversially named) "junk" DNA The Human Genome Project (HGP) produced a reference sequence of the euchromatic human genome, which is used worldwide in biomedical sciences. Genes Surprisingly, the number of human genes seems to be less than a factor of two greater than that of many much simpler organisms, such as the roundworm and the fruit fly. However, human cells make extensive use of alternative splicing to produce several different proteins from a single ...
