Into the deep

How It Works - - INBOX -

Hi How it Works, I’ve been read­ing your mag­a­zine for a while now and love the en­vi­ron­ment sec­tion, but I’ve been won­der­ing, what’s the deep­est lake in the world?

Matthew Si­menoidis

Well, Matthew, ac­cord­ing to the Guin­ness World Records, the world’s deep­est lake is Lake Baikal in south­east­ern Siberia, Rus­sia. It is 636 kilo­me­tres long, 48 kilo­me­tres wide and the lake’s Olkhon Cre­vice reaches depths of 1,637 me­tres.

“Cas9 cuts a slot for the new DNA, slots it in and stitches it up. It’s this process that in­spired gene edit­ing in other or­gan­isms”

the depth of lake Baikal was mea­sured in 1974 by the Hy­dro­graphic Ser­vice of the Soviet pa­cific navy
