From ScienceDaily: Carrying around a spare tire is a good thing — you never know when you’ll get a flat. Turns out we’re all carrying around “spare tires” in our genomes, too. Today, in ACS Central Science, researchers report that an extra set of guanines (or “G”s) in our DNA may function just like a […]

We are told that the mistletoe species lacks genes found in all other complex organisms. From ScienceDaily: A discovery made during an analysis of a species of mistletoe whose apparent ability to survive without key genes involved in energy production could make it one of the most unusual plants on Earth. … “This loss of […]

From The Scientist : A large number of human genes can substitute for their defective counterparts in yeast and prevent the microorganisms from dying, according to a paper published today (May 21) in Science. Of more than 400 human-to-yeast gene replacements performed, almost 50 percent were effective at compensating for a missing vital function. “No […]

Basically, a new polyploid plant species has had more than one separate origin in Scotland. And we still don’t know how that works.* Polyploidy—the heritable condition of possessing more than two complete sets of chromosomes—has always been something of a mystery, and this new find both illuminate it and suggests we should pay more attention to […]

Someone should write a book about ways that Darwinism has impeded science that go well beyond wrecking doubters’ careers.

New atheists wonder why they are least liked! Is it barely possible that it’s not about being an atheist after all but about, um, behaviour issues?

Researchers: The reasons for the wide range of genome size found in different species remain largely enigmatic.

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 […]

Here’s a link to a Science Daily article on epigenetics. The authors report that the known and studied method of epigenetic marking, methylation of Histone3=H3, is not only passed down from one cell generation to another during development, but that these epigenetic markings are passed on from one generation of organisms to the next. These […]

Are you what you eat? Or what’s eating you? Novel virus discovered in half the world’s population A new study led by researchers at San Diego State University has found that more than half the world’s population is host to a newly described virus, named crAssphage, which infects one of the most common types of […]

Researchers: What these efforts show is that it’s a two-way road—proteomics can be used to annotate the genome.

From the charts in this blog, the annotations in the genome data base are now over 50% wrong, they are more often wrong than right.

Walter Remine mentioned in passing about a parasite that slowly evolved to lose all its organs except for its anus. Unfortunately he didn’t recall the name of the creature or whether he got all the details right, but rather than peppered moths, if that creature really exists, it should be the poster child of Darwinism.

The people standing athwart epigenetics and yelling “Stop!” probably won’t like epigenomics either.
