Singing Student Makes Accidental, Incredible DNA Discovery at BYU

A member of BYU's a cappella group, Vocal Point, discovered something extraordinary and completely by accident while using his computer to break down and examine DNA.

A BYU graduate student has made a discovery he says could change the way we understand diseases.

And this discovery was all by accident.

Paul Bodily, who is working toward a doctorate degree in computer science, was surprised by his discovery while he was working on assembling strands of DNA for study.

"I sat back for a minute and realized, wait a minute, this really could happen," Bodily said. "It does happen and it is happening."
