Scientists synthesise DNA-like molecule, may help search for alien life

A molecular system that can store and transmit information like DNA has been synthesised by scientists which might help in the search for alien life.

This finding was published in the journal Science suggesting that there could be a genetic system for life that may possibly be on other worlds, an alternative to DNA-based-life, as we know it on Earth.

According to the information received from the researchers, this new molecular system suggests scientists who look for life beyond our planet might need to reflect what they are searching for.
