I have learned in school that in the human DNA strand, there are a lot of useless genes, that were, for some reason, left in the DNA from previous evolutions of humans. For example, the teacher said that it may be possible to have squid genes in the human DNA strand. My question is, is it possible to activate these useless genes, and put them to use? Some of these genes could be useful, such as possibly, a gene for gills might be present in the human chromosome. If these genes could be activated, there could be many possible benefits.
Re: Is it possible to activate unnecessary genes in the human Chromosomes?
