Dartmouth researcher finds novel genetic patterns that make us rethink biology and individuality

Scott Williams, Ph.D., of the iQBS at Dartmouth, has made two novel discoveries: 1) a person can have several DNA mutations in parts of their body, with their original DNA in the rest — resulting in several different genotypes in one individual — and 2) some of the same genetic mutations occur in unrelated people. We think of each person’s DNA as unique, but if a person can have more than one genotype, this may have broad implications.
