Hello, Mr. Major General - Chapter 1565
Chapter 1565: A True Genius
“Just her? How could she be so close to the Nobel Prize? !” Gu Nianzhi looked as if she had been struck by lightning, and made Lu Yuan laugh.
He wasn’t young anymore, but after the passage of time, his smile had a captivating charm. It was like aged wine, the older it was, the more deliciousit became.
Lu Jin happened to come down from the second floor with a laptop in his arms. He sat down beside Gu Nianzhi.
“It’s the truth. If you don’t believe me, you can ask your father.” Lu Yuan took the opportunity to point his chin at Lu Jin.
Gu Nianzhi quickly turned to look at Lu Jin, who had just sat down, and pushed his arm. “Isn’t is true, Dad? Is she really that good?”
Lu Jin sighed, which was rare for him, and said, “It’s true. Qin Yaoguang is quite accomplished academically.”
Gu Nianzhi finally believed that Qin Yaoguang wasn’t completely useless after being praised by someone like Lu Jin.
“She is indeed very inspiring in the field of biomedicine.” Lu Jin placed his laptop on the coffee table in front of him and stirred it with his hands in front of him. With a straight face, he said, “Especially after He Zhichu was born and learned about hHe Zhichu’s congenital genetic defect, she was even more determined to treat him.”
“She came up with the idea of ‘gene editing’ in order to treat He Zhichu.”
“What is gene editing?” Gu Nianzhi asked curiously. “It sounds very grand.”
“From a theoretical point of view, gene editing is the reediting of DNA fragments in the human body, removing problematic genes, and adding intact genes.”
“It can be said that the emergence of the gene editing theory makes it possible for perfect human genes to move from theory to reality.”
Lu Jin narrowed his eyes and looked at Gu Nianzhi. He suddenly looked away. His hands clenched into fists, and his arms trembled slightly.
He didn’t want to say it, but seeing Gu Nianzhi’s confused expression, he felt that he should say it anyway.
“Nianzhi, you’re the first perfect human gene that we’ve created through gene editing technology, but you’re also the last.” Lu Jin hugged his head and almost fell to his knees.
Although she was mentally prepared for this, Gu Nianzhi was still shocked by Lu Jin. After a while, she touched the back of her neck and said in disbelief, “… Me? Perfect gene?”
Lu Jin held his head and nodded. In a muffled voice, he said, “You have the only set of pure human genes in the world, without any non-human components. You have to know that the current human genes actually contain eight percent of non-human genes, but you don’t. All the non-human genes in your DNA have been removed by me, and then I added a complete human gene fragment that has a supporting effect.”
“This is still not perfect,” Lu Jin said as he gradually raised his head. After all, this was a very cutting-edge scientific field. To a person like him, it was incomparably tempting.
He looked ahead, and there was light in his jet-black eyes. “Nianzhi, do you know? The truly perfect gene is not only completely healthy and doesn’t have the slightest bit of mutation, but when it is damaged, it can also automatically repair itself! — Allowing the human body to have the ability to automatically repair itself was the perfect gene combination.
“This was once the result of our research.”
“In the beginning, we only discovered that your gene could automatically repair damaged genes. Therefore, it was very effective against He Zhichu’s congenital gene defect.”
“However, in the four years after I left, Qin Yaoguang discovered that your gene could not only repair the gene defect, but it could also automatically repair the damage to your own body!”
“Your genetic potential is even more perfect than we imagined!”
Gu Nianzhi’s heart sank, and the smile on her face disappeared in an instant.
She had the most perfect and purest human genes. Not only could her genes repair damage on the genetic level, but she could also repair damage on the physical level!
She finally understood why she had suffered such a serious injury that she could quickly heal without medicine or surgery.
This was her unique constitution.
It was no wonder that she was able to recover from such a serious gunshot wound even though she was on the verge of death.
In just over a month’s time, all the wounds on her body had recovered to the same state as before.
There were so many small shrapnel embedded in her heart. If it was an ordinary person, they would have already been dead by now.
However, because of the powerful physical recovery ability brought about by her perfect genes, she persevered through it. The damaged part of her heart on her chest was restored to its original state.
She stared fixedly at Lu Jin with a dazed expression on her face.”… Dad, then tell me, am I still considered a human?”
She clutched her chest. “Is what’s beating here a real heart?”
Lu Jin looked at her with his mouth agape. He pulled her into his arms and caressed her head, then he said anxiously, “Nianzhi, what are you thinking about? Of course you’re human. Half of your genes came from me. I only fixed some of the imperfections in your genes, but that’s not the main reason. In terms of genetic factors, I gave all my genes to you!”
His voice was loud and powerful, and as if she had been enlightened, Gu Nianzhi was pulled back from the brink of cognitive confusion.
Her eyes turned from hazy to clear and bright, and her big black and white eyes moving nimbly. She leaned into Lu Jin’s arms while listening to his increasingly intense heartbeat, then she smiled quietly.
“… but it sounds like you’ve contributed more. Why is it that Qin Yaoguang is one step away from the Nobel Prize, and not you?” Gu Nianzhi looked up and asked curtly.
Lu Jin looked down at her and suddenly felt a little embarrassed. He let go of his hand and shifted his gaze to the side. He looked around and said,”… As for that, why does it matter who gets it? Why do you care?”
Gu Nianzhi looked at him suspiciously. “Of course it’s different. What are you hiding?”
Lu Yuan burst out laughing, and he said, “You still haven’t thought of it? Nianzhi, because your father already got it! Yet Qin Yaoguang only came up with the concept of gene editing, but it wasn’t perfected, so she’s still a step away from the Nobel Prize.”
“But your father has already won the Nobel Prize a long time ago, and has won it twice. One time, it was a breakthrough in high-energy magnetic fields, and the other time, it was the invention of a gene editing tool.”
Gu Nianzhi gasped.
Two Nobel Prizes, once in physics, and once in biomedical science.
What was a genius?
This was a true genius.
He could do practically anything.
Gu Xiangwen, who was here, was once a genius scientist who was famous both at home and abroad, right?
Gu Nianzhi suddenly thought of Gu Xiangwen, who was also in the other world. He also had the potential to be this smart, right?
But he had spent his entire life hiding his identity.
Wasn’t this a different fate?
Lu Jin saw that Gu Nianzhi was staring at him in a daze and didn’t say anything. He was a little uncertain, so he moved closer to her and whispered, “… Nianzhi, you weren’t even born when I won the award. I didn’t use you as an experiment carrier to win the award.”
She was born after all these technologies had matured.
Gu Nianzhi’s eyes twitched. Did she care about all this?
Seeing that she still didn’t speak, Lu Jin was anxious. “What’s wrong? Don’t believe me? I can show you my Nobel Prize certificate. It has the date of the award, five years before you were born! There’s also a video of me receiving the award in Stockholm. It was given to me by the King of Sweden… The two awards compensation wasn’t much, and I’ve already donated them…”
The Nobel prize money had broken through the million-dollar mark in recent years. Of course, it wasn’t much to Lu Jin.
Gu Nianzhi closed her eyes and finally said, “Okay, I believe you. I’m… just too shocked right now. I’m a little scared too.”
She looked at Lu Jin’s face and her gaze finally landed on Lu Yuan. She said expressionlessly, “… I feel like I’ve become a monk or a ginseng fruit. How many people know about my special constitution? Can I still live until tomorrow?”
Lu Yuan stopped smiling and became seriou. “Nianzhi, you can doubt me, but you can’t doubt your father. In order to protect you, he had used all sorts of methods over the years to erase all the data that you left behind in this world. He had even tried to modify the fragments of your genes that Qin Yaoguang had left behind.”
“As long as you don’t fall into Qin Yaoguang’s hands again, you’ll be safe.”
“Qin Yaoguang’s ability to repair your genes is also in the testing stage. It was because she wasn’t sure that she had done everything she could…”
Gu Nianzhi continued sarcastically, “She had done everything she could to get my ‘body’ to do the experiment.”
Qin Yaoguang didn’t believe that she would be able to survive such a serious gunshot wound.
“So, as soon as I show up tonight, Qin Yaoguang will know that my genetic repair ability is even more perfect than what she thought, right?” Gu Nianzhi calmed down and frowned.
What could she do to give Qin Yaoguang a hard blow and dispel her suspicions and covetousness?
