Researchers: 150,000 quadruplex DNA sequence motifs found to be ‘non-randomly’ distributed throughout the genetic material of maize

This is from a new study published in Nature Communications, and talked about at Phys.Org. Oh, how difficult it is these days to be an “intellectually fulfilled” neo-Darwinian: Humans don’t like being alone, and their genes are no different. Together we are stronger, and the two versions of a gene – one from each parent […]

Fed up as they are with doubters and unbelievers like ourselves, the Darwin lobby needs to clone this guy.

It is fair to say that the purpose of lab work with mice was not to elucidate disparities between their genome and ours.

Environmental cues experienced by one generation can affect growth and maturation of future generations in ways not explained by current theory?

By the way, haven’t we been here before? Didn’t we agree a while back that we would never eat lunch in this dump again?

Because the genome is only a parts list. But there’s hope.

Scientists show for the first time that offspring can resemble a mother’s previous sexual partner (in flies at least).

I’ve been saying the OP’s title for years now. And, every day, I read review articles in the like of Phys.Org (they usually get out the articles first!) and, sure enough, there’s an article undermining Darwinian orthodoxy and the neo-Darwinian mechanisms that underpin it. Here’s today’s latest. It involves the insect genome and proteins once […]

Here’s a news article from Phys.Org on a lamprey study. Actually it’s a study concerning phylogenetics and using gene regulatory mechanisms to figure out the relationships that exist. It turns out that in the lamprey, which is part of the Cambrian explosion, the same kind of hind brain gene regulatory mechanisms are in place as […]

On the bright side, this seems to have been a responsible, back-to-the-drawing-board, retraction. One we can learn from.

About time someone started outing the nonsense instead of peddling it.

Don’t believe anything that contradicts carefully considered experience, simply because the claim appeared in a science journal.

Turtles probably aren’t really closer to birds than to lizards and snakes, like RNA studies reported.

Mutations are used to explain evolution but also cause cancer. Biologists have discovered conditions for multiple mutations. Can we therefore infer that evolution via mutations is more likely? or that enhanced mutations will cause faster species degradation and extinction? Biologists describe mechanism promoting multiple DNA mutations DNA mutations—long known to fuel cancer as well as […]
