Mysterious Seafloor Holes Baffling Scientists to Be Probed for DNA

Mysterious holes found at the bottom of the ocean by marine researchers are set to be probed for DNA in a bid to determine what created these weird, regularly spaced features.

In July, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said lines of holes had been found on the ocean floor at a depth of around 8,300 feet below the surface of the Atlantic.

Photos posted by the agency showed a series of holes all spaced neatly apart in a straight line. Another characteristic of the holes is that they appear to be surrounded by small piles of sediment, suggesting they had been excavated.
